Model Answer 1:
A lot of people love to travel to new countries or regions. I personally like travelling, and if I have the chance to travel overseas for two weeks, I would like to visit China, which is located in the northern part of Asia region. The following essay will explain in details the reason why I choose China as my main destination point.
To begin with, it is a fact that China is well known for its civilisation, and there are a lot of historical places that I must visit. Firstly, I would definitely visit the Great Wall of China, which is included in the Seven Wonders of the World. It was the longest wall that was ever made by human being, and it was said that astronauts could see the wall with a naked eye from the shuttle space ship. Secondly, I will visit the Tian An Men Square, which is located in the capital city of China or Beijing. The square is a palace where most of the emperor of China had lived until the communist party took over the country in 1960. These ancient buildings contain a lot of historical values; therefore I must visit these places.
Besides the historical places, there are other things that visitors could do in China. There are a lot of beautiful landscapes in the country, such as mountains, hills and valleys which are well known for their purity and originality. And then, China is well known for its unique and exotic animal, Panda. Panda is a part of the bear family, but the animal has a unique colour and it can only be found in China. Furthermore, the country is also famous for its culinary. There are various types of food in China, from the spicy ones until the extreme type such cockroaches or spiders. Therefore, there are many activities that tourists can do, while they visit the country.
In conclusion, if I have the opportunity to visit a new country for fourteen days, I would visit China. There are a lot of things that visitors could do there, from visiting the historical places, seeing the unique animal and enjoying some of the beautiful scenery places.

Model Answer 2:
I like to travel and in my opinion, this enhances my experiences and broaden my horizon. I think travelling is a great opportunity to meet new people, gain more knowledge and experience, and learn new customs and traditions. I did not travel a lot yet, but I am sure I will have a chance to do it. So, if I had the opportunity to visit a foreign country I would visit Egypt. I think it is a great and very interesting country with a marvellous history. In the following paragraphs, I will give some reasons to support my choice.
First of all, I have always dreamed visiting different Egyptian pyramids. My aunt visited Egypt a few years ago. She was very excited after that trip and said that she would return there one more time at any cost. She said that Egypt had impressed her very much with its glorious pyramids and ancient buildings. Second of all, I think that in that country one can touch history, feel the hard breath of workers building a pyramid under the parching sun, and see the chain of camels walking in the desert with the huge trunks full of presents for Cleopatra on their humps. Finally, I want to see a real dessert and ride the camel. All my friends who rode the camel say that it is an unforgettable experience.
I believe that I will have a chance to visit this beautiful country someday. Unfortunately, now I have plenty of plans and things to do, so, I am afraid that I will not be able to travel for the next two years. I want to finish my education and then find a job, and these things have higher priority than travelling. My husband wants to visit this country too and we made an agreement to make our trip to Egypt in our five years anniversary which is in two years.
In conclusion, I want to add that after my trip to Egypt I will definitely visit Australia. This country is the second one on my list the most wanted to see.
