Part 2 – Describe a beautiful place to visit in your country

Dưới đây là bài mẫu của thầy Duy Long cho topic “Part 2 – Describe a beautiful place to visit in your country” các bạn hãy tham khảo nhé.

Bài mẫu (Sample Answer)

Being a travel buff who has set foot in many locations across Vietnam, I seriously believe that my country is home to some of the best tourist attractions in the world. The problem is, many of them have yet to gain the global reputation that they rightfully deserve. One of the most prominent examples would be Sapa, a mountainous town located in one of the northernmost provinces of my country.Usually referred to as “The Foggy Town”, Sapa is covered with fog all year round due to its high altitude, which gives it such an ethereal beauty. Despite the commercialization which has been taking place in recent years, fortunately most of thelandscapes within the area still remain untouched by humans. Though I have been here quite a few times, the magnificence of the pristine forests and rivers has never ceased to amaze me.

Natural landscapes aside, cultural beauty is certainly another key selling point for Sapa. The town is mainly occupied by the Hmong people, one of the regions’ largest ethnic groups. Tourists can choose to stay in ecolodges run by the Hmongs themselves and get immersed in their culture – you know, enjoying local dishes and trying local costumes. What I love about these activities is that the price point is usually very affordable, which means you can gain authentic experiences within budget.Overall, Sapa is very high on my listwhen it comes to travel destinations within Vietnam. When someone asked me to “describe a beautiful place you once visited”, I always talked about Sapa. Should the opportunity present itself, foreign visitors should definitely pay this spectacular town a visit.

Part 3: Travel

1. Do you people in your country like to travel?

Of course! Popular travel destinations in Vietnam are always flooded with domestic tourists during national holidays. I cannot think of better examples than coastal cities like Da Nang or Nha Trang, which admittedly are fantastic options for those who want a quick escape from their daily life. Apart from the more touristy places, there are also countless tourist attractions across Vietnam which still remain intact. That is why so many Vietnamese have become fixated on being able to visit as many provinces of the country as possible.

  • Flooded with (v): ngập tràn
  • Domestic (adj): nội địa
  • Admittedly (adv): công nhận là
  • Quick escape (n): chuyến xả hơi ngắn ngày
  • Intact (adj): nguyên vẹn, chưa bị khai thác
  • Fixated on (adj): tập trung vào việc gì đó, quyết làm gì đó

2. How has traveling changed compared to several decades ago?

Perhaps the biggest shift has been in how far people are willing to travel.Decades ago, people would often travel within their local region, which made sense because transportation means were limited at that time, and quite costly anyway. Well, the story today could not be more different. Advances in the aviation industry and cheaper transportation costs have allowed tourists to travel intercontinentally much more easily and quickly.The fact that international travel has become more popular is also attributable to countries’ open-door policy on tourism. I mean, compared to the past, it is generally much cheaper now to apply for travel visas or book hotels in a foreign nation.

  • Aviation (n): hàng không
  • Intercontinentally (adv): xuyên lục địa
  • Open-door policy (n): chính sách mở cửa

3. When do people often travel and whom do they usually go with?

I mean, everybody leads a different life. But most commonly, people would choose to travel during big holidays, when they do not have any work obligations and can afford to go anywhere they want for a few days. They want to put their mind at ease after a long time working hard.Regarding travel partners, friends and families are always classic options, and for all the right reasons. Most people are so occupied with work that they just can’t find the time to bond with their beloved ones. Traveling together is a great way to compromise

  • Work obligation (n): nghĩa vụ công việc
  • For all the right reasons: vì những lý do chính đáng
  • Compromise (v): bù đắp

4. Do you think travel can change people’s way of thinking?

As someone who majored in cultural studies, I cannot agree more. Traveling is simply the best way to expand one’s horizons and raise their awareness of the surrounding world.Of course, these days you can virtually travel via the Internet. Still, for me, nothing can beat the experience of being truly immersed in an authentic foreign culture. I mean, how can you understand a cuisine without actually trying the food there? And how can you gain insight into a culture without having actual interactions with its people?Again, what I’m trying to say is that travel does possess the power of changing your worldview.

  • Expand one’s horizon (v): mở rộng hiểu biết
  • Gain insight (n): góc nhìn của người trong cuộc
  • Worldview (n): thế giới quan
