Essay Topic: Some people like to travel outside their country. Others would rather go to tourist spots in their own country first, before travelling abroad. Which do you prefer to do and why ? Include specific details with examples to support your choice.
The Essay: People have varying preference of travel destinations, with few choosing international locations and yet others opting to visit domestic tourist spots before travelling out of their country. I would rather visit international locales instead of national sites as the world is a much bigger place with numerous interesting scenes.
First, we can see a plethora of mesmerising and enchanting places like the Niagra Falls, Pyramids of Eygypt and the leaning Tower of Pisa amongst others. Though I have read of them and also watched on television, seeing them in real life would be so much more enriching. For example, when I visited the White House in Washington last year, I was enamoured by the history and beauty of the construction.
Second, going to different locations abroad, would certainly widen my horizons by giving exposure to the lifestyle, culture, cuisines and attire of these places. This would help me to appreciate the unity in diversity of the world population and how we are all basically connected. For instance, my trip abroad last year revealed to me that people have the same aspirations despite apparent differences.
Finally, travelling to other nations requires lot of money, time as well as energy, vis-a-vis domestic tours. Therefore, before I get older, I prefer to go over and see tourist destinations in other countries. However, visiting tourist spots with my country can be done in shorter duration and lesser budget which I can do very easily.
To conclude, I prefer to visit international tourist spots over the domestic locations in order to enjoy the beauty of the world at large apart from broadening my vision of life, although some choose to go to places within our own country before exploring other nations.
