Model Answer 1:

There are so many places – beautiful places – in our world which I would just love to visit someday. Of course, I have been lucky to have visited a few of them already. But, today, I would like to talk about one particular place in another part of the world which I would really like to visit in future.

This particular place, I would like to visit, is called “Hawaii” which is located in the USA. To many people in this world who like to travel, Hawaii is very much like a paradise. Regarded as the most isolated population centre on the face of the earth, with more than 137 islands that stretches over 1500 miles, it is the only US state which is located outside the continent of North America and the only island state.

But, I didn’t know anything about this place until I saw some travel shows on television, as well as by reading many travel magazines. I also learned about this place from the writing of one of the most famous American authors of all time called “Mark Twain”, who said in one of his books that Hawaiian islands are “the loveliest fleet of the island that lies anchored in any ocean”. Needless to say, many who make the journey to the Aloha State will often agree, and this is where I would like to visit in future. But, unfortunately, from where I live, I can travel to this place only by taking a flight because this place is located more than 10,000 kilometres away from my country on another continent.

Anyway, I would like to visit Hawaii, primarily because it arguably has the most beautiful and inviting warm water beaches that one can find anywhere not only in America but also in the whole wide world. In fact, every island in Hawaii is home to a famous beach. Besides, Hawaii also has some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world that would constantly remind us of a magical scene with their lush rainforest vegetation. Finally, I want to visit this place because it would help me experience its universal “aloha spirit”.

Sample Answer 2:

Bali Island is one of the most charming places in the world and is located in Indonesia. This is a beautiful place indeed to visit. The island is also famous for its mountains formed from volcanic eruptions many years ago, the splendid beach, sunset scenes, coral reefs, temples, resort towns and many more attractive spots. The most important thing is that this is a perfect place for relaxation. The island is also famous for meditation and yoga practice. I would like to thank you for this nice cue card topic.

I came to know about the island first from a US magazine where an article was published about the island. I came to know about the beach views and the geographical characteristics of the island which is really interesting. Besides, visiting the island was also beneficial for mental health. All the matters made me interested to gather more information about this island. Finding no other ways, I took help from Google as well to know more about it. What I found later was amazing.

Visiting the island is not very difficult for me. In fact, I will need to obtain a tourist visa from the Indonesian Embassy here in San Francisco. I hope I will get the visa if I could submit the proper documents and explain my purposes of visiting the country. There are no other ways to travel there except an aeroplane. So, I also will need to book the fight with a return ticket.  

Generally, I love to enjoy the natural views and have already visited many of the parts of the USA. Therefore, now I would like to visit the other parts of the world in immediate. As part of the visit, I am making plans to visit the places in Bali Island is on the top of the list for its distinguished features and exotic locations.

1. Buckingham Palace is a great one to visit in England. This is the residence of the monarch of the country and also the administrative headquarters. The palace is located in Westminster. I came to know about it from the general knowledge book. To visit the place, I have to collect my passport and visa for England. Besides, I also may need permissions to enter the palace. This is a nice place and related to numerous history. So, I would love visiting there.  

2. Darwin is a wonderful place in Australia. The coastline of the city looks wonderful. The sandy sea beach is always filled with the crowd. I was browsing a website to know about beautiful places in Australia and it appeared before me. Australia is far away from my own land. I live in South Africa. So, I will need to arrange for many things to make it come true. I want to visit the place to enjoy the beauties of the country.

3. The Red Fort is located in Delhi and a historical place as well. The fort has been used as the residence of Mughal emperors in their regime. An Indian friend of mine told me about the establishment. Visiting the fort is not easy. At first, I have to go to Delhi from New York City. Then I will need my friend’s help to reach the fort. So far, I heard that it was a historical place and different attractive relics are there. So, I would love to go there.

The Seoul Tower is the second-highest point in the country. A recent article about the tower informed me of all the information. Visiting the country is a bit troublesome for me from Britain. But I have a plan to go there somehow. This is a very attractive place and a perfect position for observation. So, I want to go there.

5. Neelum Valley in Pakistan is a wonderful place to visit around the year. The place is under the Azad Kashmir area – on the opposite of India occupied Kashmir. The valley is around 240 kilometres in length. This is beautiful land indeed and the entire locality is a blue gem in a practical sense. After reading an article on Kashmir, I came to know about the area. Managing visa for Pakistan would be hard for me. I have seen some photos and they were magnificent. So, I would like to go there.
