RESIDENTIAL AREA PLANNING IN THE REGION OF KIM BONG RIVER
Nha Trang, a beautiful coastal city on the shores of the famous Nha Trang Bay, is having enormous potentiality in developing the general economy, especially the tourism economy - services. The residential area of Kim Bong River, located in the central tourist urban area, is one of the current urban areas invested and renovated by the city government following the general development orientation.
The impressive image of the Kim Bong River meandering in the urban area looks like a boot. The flow of the river creates different sections. Some places are narrow; others are expanded with luxuriant green trees on both sides. However, this river is severely polluted; the local people are encroaching upon the riverbed jam the river flow in some places. The problem urgently needs to have a strategy to improve and protect the river immediately so that Kim Bong River will resurrect and become a tourist destination contributing to the urban landscape. Our planners desire to turn the river into an attractive tourist destination similar to the canal in Amsterdam.
