Tourists visiting Malaysia and Dubai from 1995 to 2003

Sample Answer 1:
The line graph compares the number of travellers who visited Malaysia and Dubai from 1995 to 2003. Overall, more tourists went to visit Malaysia from 1995 to 2000, but afterwards, Dubai got more visitors.

Getting back to the details, 100 thousand tourists visited Malaysia in 1995 and it was more than double than the number of tourists in Dubai at the same time. Next year, visitors to Malaysia increases while declined in Dubai. Afterwards, the number of tourists in Malaysia and Dubai rapidly increased and in 1998, 200 thousand people went to Malaysia compared to over 150 thousand in Dubai. Interestingly, holidaymakers’ number to both these places became identical and reached to over a quarter million in 2000. Next year, both countries witnessed a hike in their tourists’ number which stood at around 325 thousand. A reverse trend during the next few years followed with more tourists in Dubai than in Malaysia. In 2002 Dubai got more trippers and this trend continued in the next year when 0.4 million vacationers visited Dubai compared to less than 0.25 million in Malaysia.  

Sample Answer 2:
The line graph compares the number of visitors in Malaysia and Dubai between 1995 and 2003. Both these countries received more tourists in 2003 than they did in 1995 and Dubai’s share of travellers went higher than that of Malaysia despite a reverse scenario in early years.

According to the illustration, the number of tourists who visited Malaysia in 1995 was 0.1 million, more than double than that of Dubai. The visitors in Malaysia kept on increasing very swiftly till 2000 when it attracted more than a quarter tourists. On the contrary, Dubai, despite a decline in 1996, managed to attract more vacationers and had almost the same number of people visiting there in 2000 as it was in Malaysia. Next year, both of their tourists’ number went up but afterwards Dubai had been more successful in getting more visitors than Malaysia did. In 2003, four hundred thousand people travelled to Dubai, an overwhelming rise than that of 1995, while Malaysia managed to attract fewer than 250 thousand vacationers, which was roughly 2.5 times than that of 1995.
