Ecosystems and landscapes are dramatically modified by human development, including but not limited to the construction of roads and damming of rivers.

When visiting the country it is clear that the ethnicities retain their religions, customs and way of life.
The most important festivals: public holidays.
Families tend to socialise within their own ethnic group (all part of retaining their individual traditions and lifestyles)
