Day 5 Reflections, Toby Gail Lim

EQ1: What is your impression of HCMC?
I think HCMC is a city that has many sides to it. Many people usually have the impression that HCMC is a place that is traditional and not so urban, similar to the Hanoi area. After this trip, I have seen parts of HCMC that I have never seen before, which are very polished and urban. In the different districts, I actually see many different types of HCMC.

EQ2: What is a culture?
Culture is a rich mix of beliefs, designs, practices, arts and more. Each culture has its own distinctive characteristics that makes it unique and different from other cultures, and some cultures might have similarities.

EQ3: What influences the culture of a country?
The main factor that influences the culture of a country is the people there, as well as the history of the country. It depends on what the people in the past started to believe in and do, which slowly builds up and forms a rich culture over the years.

EQ4: How is the retail development, a reflection of a country's development?
The more developed their retail is, the more the country is developing. The retail of a country is to cater to the needs of a people, so if a country is developing, then the people would have even more needs, which means that the retail would be developed better to cater to these needs.
