Sample Answer:
Travelling is my passion and I love to explore new places. I even have a wish list of places I would love to go before I die. Among the places I have been to, Sanyou Cave in China is a place that I particularly liked and would love to visit again.

It was 2005 when I went there with my family members. It would probably be mid-July of 2005 when I had been there. My parents are also fond of travelling new places and my father actually selected this place for a two week’s tour. I went there with my parents, my elder brother and his wife. We wanted to take my grandmother but she declined the proposal considering her health condition.

Sanyou Cave is in the sheer cliff at the northern region of Xiling Gorge. This was about 6 miles away from the Yichang City of China. This is considered as one of the best cave scenery in the Asia and the whole part was something unexpected to me.

Walking up the path from the cave to the Zhixin pavilion was the most memorable part of this tour. My father was with me and he said ‘is not it beautiful?’ twice during our walk. I thought I time travelled to a distant past and was part of another time and dimension that I actually live in.

When we arrived near the cave and looked around, I was awe stricken. It was quite surprising for me to witness a place that I never thought would exist. This place reminded me the movie ‘Time machine’ that I watched many years before. It was so beautiful a place that I liked every moment of our staying there. We spent the night in a hotel established in the cave and that was enthralling. The meaning of the words ‘Sanyou Cave’ is ‘Cave of the Three Travelers’ and it is said that this is a place that inspires people. The exceptional inspiration I got from this place is something I will cherish, probably for the rest of my life.
