A place where you like to visit but would not live permanently

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 478 with Model Answer:

Describe a place where you like to visit but would not want to live permanently.

You should say:
  • where it is
  • what type of place it is
  • what you can do when you visit there
and explain why you would not want to live there even if you like to visit that place.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]



Model Answer:
I have been lucky enough to visit some international tourist destinations. However, while I have loved visiting them in the short term, I never really felt like living there in the long term or permanently. Today, I would like to talk about one of those places.

The place, I am talking about, is called “Kathmandu” which also happens to be the capital of a country called “Nepal” or the “daughter of the Himalayas”. Now, here I must say that even though I haven’t really had the opportunity to travel to all of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world, I wouldn’t really hesitate to include the city of Kathmandu among them, mainly because it is both magical and mythical in equal measure. In fact, just the name “Kathmandu” itself evokes the images of a very ancient city, with its awe-inspiring temples that are standing tall amid the towering Himalayas.

Indeed, Kathmandu (or “the city of temples” as the tourists and the locals passionately likes to call it) is home to lots of astounding historical and cultural tourist attractions for the tourists to explore. Here in this city, one can’t only observe the religious and cultural festivals, parading through the street, but also visit the marvellous palaces and age-old temples that are lying alongside the bustling “bazaars”. Oh, by the way, if you are as “economical” as I am, you can also buy every kind of product imaginable at these bazaars at a very “affordable” price. With all of its enticing sights and sounds, Kathmandu undoubtedly is really an incredible place which serves as a great gateway to the majestic Himalayan mountains that just lie very nearby.

Now, as much as I like the sights and sounds of this incredible city, I wouldn’t really like to live there on a permanent basis, primarily because it is just too chaotic and crowded for a small city boy like me. I wouldn’t like to live here also because the weather there is just a bit too cold for my liking.
