Ports are serving as one of the main ways to transport goods, but also for tourism and more. Planning ports for the modern and large ships is very important to economics of the country.
A modern port can serve many needs of a country and can help very much for the development of a country.
A waterfront alongside a sea or a river can be a real urban celebration, as can be seen in many cities around the world. The planning aspects of a waterfront are not only architectural and design, but also include many other aspects like a mix of land uses, economic aspects, landscape design, traffic and parking, the plan of the water edge, etc.
