Model Answer:
As soon as I looked at this topic, the place that popped up in my mind is the Great Barrier Reef. This is a dazzling place and it is surrounded by a lot of water. This is actually located in the Coral Sea in Queensland, Australia and I had been fortunate enough to visit this place last year.

My uncle lives in Australia and earlier last year, we went to visit his family. As part of our tour, we visited the Great Barrier Reef and it was a heavenly place that I would like to visit again someday. It is a famous place for the tour-lovers and we had a great time there.

I learned about this place from the Discovery channel and it would be more than 5 years ago when I watched a documentary that portrayed the world’s largest coral reef. The remarkable documentary that focused the Great Barrier Reef presented it as a blessed place with the breathtaking beauty. It is a Natural Wonder of the world. 

When I witnessed this place, I was awestricken by the real beauty of it. This place was something out-of-the-world and as the largest coral reef with a spectacular view attracts a lot of tourists each year. The reef contains spectacular marine life and it comprised more than 3000 reef systems and coral cays and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Initially, we had a plan to spend about 3-4 hours there but as soon as we reached there, we changed our mind. Finally, we spent 2 and half days and did many things which we enjoyed a lot. We did scuba diving, cruise ship tours, watched whales (this was, in fact, the first time I saw the whale), swam with many dolphins (probably the best experience for me) and enjoyed the local food. We took hundreds of pictures and many of them were magnificent. The sunset eve was a great experience for us and we enjoyed both the sunrise and sunset from a beach there and the blue and clean water was everywhere.
