IELTS Cue Card # 127 - A place of natural beauty you would like to visit

IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.

Describe a place of natural beauty you would like to visit.

You should say:

  • what type of place it is
  • why you want to visit this place
  • when you plan to visit there

and explain why you think this place is worth visiting.


Model Answer 1:
We sure live in a big, big world with staggering mountains, massive glaciers, stunning lakes, and beautiful forests full of wild animals. However, while it would take a lifetime to visit only a fraction of some of these mother nature’s greatest hits, I would like to take an opportunity to talk about just one of them, which I am planning to visit sometime next year.

The name of this naturally beautiful place is called the “Lake Van” in Turkey. Now, we all know how insanely beautiful Turkey really is, as a country, but Lake Van deserves to be specifically mentioned here because it has largely remained untouched by a slew of hotels and resorts. In fact, it is fair to suggest that even though, this is the largest lake of Turkey, located almost a thousand miles away from the east of the fleshpots of Turkey’s economic and cultural capital of Istanbul, it is still quite unknown to most foreign visitors.

Anyway, with its intriguingly beautiful high altitude (about 5,400 feet above sea level) and startlingly crystal-clear blue water, the Van lake region has plenty of amazing sights, historic castles, including the beautiful 10th century Holy Cross Cathedral church, and natural spectacle to “wow” the visitors. These should be enough reasons for one to visit this beautiful lake. But, if that’s not enough to persuade someone to visit this place, its stunningly beautiful sandy or pebbled beaches will.

This place is certainly worth a visit, mainly because it is all-natural in a sense that the place hasn’t yet been touched by the brutal and modern development works in the name of developing “tourism”.  Besides, this region also has a great historical significance as the lake once sat astride a major branch of the Silk Road and was also considered to be a very prosperous and populous region for many centuries up until the First World War. Finally, this region was so beautiful that the Armenian people, who lived there used to say, “Van in this world, paradise in the next”, meaning Van was a piece of paradise in this world.


Sample Answer 2:
A naturally beautiful place where I would like to visit is (…say the name of a place you know is naturally beautiful…). It is a place that gives the impression of natural elegance, serenity and divinity as it has a vast green area beside the hills. Moreover, a beautiful river has passed through it to enhance the appeal and beauty of this place. The flowers and fields are like scenery painted by a professional painter. The butterfly, birds, bushes, lavish green fields, tall trees and tea garden make it a place worth visiting.

I have heard about the stunning beauty of this place from my friends who went there. They have recommended it as a worth-visiting place. I have also read a few articles about the tourist attraction and natural beauty of this place. The writers describe it as an adventurous place, mainly because the activities like hiking, swimming in the river, visiting the lightened caves at night and so on.

I have a plan to visit this place in the near future when I would have a vacation of more than 7 days. The local food of this place, especially the fried fish and shrimp, is famous, and that’s why I want to stay there for a few days to enjoy the beauty of this place while also taste the food. Perhaps, I will visit this place next December, if everything goes according to my plan.

This place is worth visiting because it is one of the most naturally beautiful places in the whole country. There are lots of activities to do, lots of things to see and several famous menus to test. Since lots of people visit this place and highly recommend it to others, I am sure this place is worth visiting.
