Can Gio Biosphere ~Pang Zhi Kai

1. As you were travelling down the river, what were some problems you observed? What are the causes of these problems?

There a quite a few rubbish dumped into the river by some inconsiderate Vietnamese as they maybe too lazy to throw into the bin or there a lack of rubbish bins in that particular area.

2. Why do people stay near a river? How can the use of the river be sustainable?

They can catch fishes ,shrimps,crabs or eels there in order to provide their family needs and to support their family financially as well.It could be sustainable if there aren't many fishing sites there or they have a controlled number of fishes in Vietnam.

3. What does it take for a location/site to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site? Why is it essential for a location like Can Gio Biosphere to be listed as such a site?

It is located far from urbanisation giving the visitors there a more natural feeling about this place give the place the environment of what is similar to the actual mangrove.There maybe sights of rare/endangered animals there which are currently only found in this type of place due to its mangrove forest.

4. If there is a place in Singapore that you can list as a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is it? Why?

Singapore Zoo.It is one of Asia best Zoos as it showcases the animals enclosures which are somewhat similar to their real life habitat which gives us an impression on how that particular animal lives in the wild though some of which maybe too small.

5. What is the difference between the market that you have visited VS that of Singapore’s. Why do you think there are such differences?

The people there seemed more friendlier and their hygiene may not be up to Singapore's standard yet but most importantly there are motorcycles zooming around the market.
