  1. What is your favorite part of nature?

It’s tough to answer, but I really love landscapes /ˈlændskeɪp/and the living world. But if I had to choose, I would choose the colors of flowers. as vivid colors and their pleasant smells help me to get away from stress and improve my mood.

  1. Where do you go to enjoy fresh air?

Well, HCM City is really noisy and quite polluted. So whenever I want to get fresh air, I will go to Dalat city, which is about 300 km from HCM city. The weather in Dalat is really mild; it has a blue sky and pure, clean air. So it’s definitely my destination to get away from the polluted air or let off steam.

  1. Have you done any nature activities recently?

Yes, of course. My recent trip was about 9 months ago. We went to a coral beach in Pattaya, Thailand. This beach has magnificent scenery /mæɡˈnɪfɪsnt/, stunning views /ˈstʌnɪŋ/, fresh air, and blue water. There were many fun activities there, but we just took a walk along the beach and enjoyed the scenery and local specialties as well. But it was really exhilarating, /ɪɡˈzɪləreɪtɪŋ/, we had a great time there.

  1. What do you do to protect the environment?

I reckon that there are a lot of things we can do to protect the natural world, such as reuse, reduce, recycle plastic containers, plant trees, and I never throw garbage on the roads or conserve water. They really help our mother nature.

  1. If you could visit any natural place, where would you go?

It’s really tough to choose because there are so many places to visit. But if I had the chance, I would go to Cuc Phuong National Park in Ninh Binh, which is the oldest national park in Vietnam. It is in the north of Vietnam.

Cuc Phuong boasts an engaging cultural and wildlife heritage /ˈherɪtɪdʒ/ and enchanting scenery /ɪnˈtʃæntɪŋ/ and magnificent mountains /mæɡˈnɪfɪsnt/.

I have seen a lot of pictures about them in textbooks or in videos, so it would be amazing to check them out in real life.
