Describe a city that you would like to visit.
You should say:
Where it is
What people do there
How you know it
And explain why you want to go there.
(Where it is) Today I’ll talk about the city which has been crowned the most visited city in the world and it is also the one that I’ve dreamed of visiting for years. It’s Hong Kong. Hong Kong, a special administrative region belonging to the People’s Republic of China, is one of the four Asian tigers due to its outstanding economic performance under the rule of Great Britain before being handed back to China. It is slightly more than 2-hour flight time from where I live. Bristling with skyscrapers, Hong
Kong’s world class Victoria Harbour is the hub of thousands of tourists every year, especially at the end of the year when the New Year Eve’s eye-catching fireworks display is held.
(What people do there) Hong Kong is one of the only two countries in Asia, apart from Japan, where there is a Disneyland resort. People, especially families, consider it as a must-visit place in Hong Kong. Apart from Disneyland, the mountains in Hong Kong offer people the best view of the city’s skyline and Victoria Harbour, so the mountains around the harbour also attract an immense number of trekkers.
(How you know it) I first heard of Hong Kong when I studied history in grade 5, since when I was inspired to pay a visit to the city once in my life, although it is not easy for a person with a Third World passport.
(Explain why you want to go there) I would like to visit Hong Kong for two reasons. First, not only does the city have beautifully designed buildings but it also has national parks, mountains and other natural tourist resources. The other reason is because Hong Kong has the one of the best trains in the world. I would like to try their MTR sometime!
