Model Answer:
Singapore is a highly charming country and as a Pakistani, I had the chance to visit the country last year. I liked the Botanic Garden most among the other places in Singapore.

My parents wanted to go for a shopping to get clothing and other necessary elements for observing the Eid Ul Fitr last year and they planned to visit Singapore. It was my father’s desire to shop in a foreign country for at least once in his life and accordingly he made the plan. After reaching the country, I was charmed with the extraordinary beauties of the city and streets. It was a lively country and the brightly illuminated city made me amazed but I was astonished after visiting the botanic garden. The greeneries of the garden made me feeling fresh. The garden was the only rainforest of the country and was occupied with many other people who want to recover their health and take a deep breath. 

My parents accompanied me during this trip (in fact, they took me with them to carry the shopping bags and materials). Whatever the purpose was, we passed some wonderful moments together and the tours were astonishing. Before we started the  journey to the country, some other business partners of my father also handed over few lists and accordingly money to get the listed things for them. It was truly difficult for us to sort the listed things and by the same time get the things were planned to buy from the local markets. Later my father contacted to one of his partners and reduced the load to some extent saying that he would be unable to bring all the listed products. 

Mostly we were busy with shopping throughout the days and had little chances to visit across the city. My parents were busy in shopping and one day I took a leave in the morning from them to visit the city. They did not allow me at first and then agreed on the condition that I would not go far. So, I started the lone journey and reached the botanic garden. The garden was filled with different trees and plants and some of the parts were filled with unknown floral scents. I also saw some people who were having physical exercise and some other people were performing yoga and breathing exercise. I took part in yoga and the participants welcomed me warmly. This is the most memorable part of my visit in the garden. 

In my native land, Pakistan, I have never seen such a huge garden like the one I have seen in Singapore. Therefore, I was attracted most by the garden and fell in love with that. I liked the garden most for its natural beauty. Besides, there was a food court just beside the garden entrance that served delicious foods and I took a breakfast on the court with softly boiled eggs, toasts, and a cup of coffee. It is the traditional breakfast of Singapore and tasted excellent. Moreover, the orchid garden inside the place was filled with numerous types of orchids and hybrid species.
