Model Answer:

I'd like to visit many different countries and places if the time and situation allow me to do so. I feel a great lust to wander around to different places with diverse landscapes, cultures, foods, lifestyles, people and architectural variations. However, Geneva, which is a global city, a financial centre, and a global centre for diplomacy due to the presence of numerous international organizations, is the place where I would like to visit. It is a city in Switzerland surrounded by the Alps and the Jura mountains. I'd like to thank you for this topic.

If everything goes according to my plan, I will apply for a tourist visa to Switzerland this November, and then fly to Geneva a couple of days later.

Once in Geneva, I'd try to enjoy the refreshing climate as much as possible and experience the culture of this fabulous cosmopolitan city which is located at the heart of Europe. I'd taste some local dishes, visit a few museums, conference halls, auditoriums and libraries there. Finally, I will definitely pick a few recommended tourists spots and see things that are unique to Geneva.

The primary reason I'd like to visit this place is because of its refreshing weather. Geneva is 1,000 feet above sea level and situated almost exactly at the centre of Europe. It has been chosen as the headquarter of many international organisations, and I want to see why! The country also had maintained its neutrality throughout decades and did not participate in World War 1 and 2, and I want to learn how this has shaped the country and its most famous city- Geneva.
