You should say:

and explain why you want to go back there.

Model Answer 1:
I have been lucky to visit some beautiful cities around the world where I would just love to go back to again and again. But, for the purpose of speaking on this cue card topic, I will pick up Tokyo city and give some fascinating accounts of it.

Well, I don’t really think that the city of Tokyo needs any introduction, but in case anybody is wondering, Tokyo is the capital city of Japan as well as the largest metropolitan in the world. With almost 4 million population (I am sure that the population was much less when I visited this city with my uncle as a teenager about 15 years ago), I think that this city is one of the few and the most fascinating cities in the world. Situated at the head of Tokyo Bay on the pacific coast of central Honshu, this particular city actually has something for everybody to do, see and enjoy.

In fact, there are so many things to do in Tokyo that one would actually need at least a few weeks to enjoy those activities. But, unfortunately, since I visited the city only for a week, I didn’t really get to enjoy everything that I wanted. But, still, I was lucky to visit some of the historic temples and the imperial palace and take a cruise around the forgotten waterways of Tokyo. I also spend some time learning some of the finest Japanese etiquette. Last but not least, I also spent a great deal of time enjoying the traditional Japanese cuisines that had some extraordinary flavour and taste.

Well, I want to go back there again, primarily because I think that the people in Tokyo are the most welcoming and hospitable people in the world. I want to visit the city again also because I just love some of the ancient rituals and traditions of Japanese people there while also enjoying some picture-perfect sceneries that are just so hard to find anywhere else in the world.



Sample Answer 2:

Introduction & What city it is:
I have been fortunate enough to have visited many beautiful cities around the world. However, one city that stands out in my memory is Vancouver, Canada. I visited Vancouver a few years ago and I am eager to go back there in the future. Thank you for this nice topic.

Where it is:
Vancouver is located in the western part of Canada, in the province of British Columbia. It is a coastal city that boasts a stunning natural setting, with the North Shore Mountains providing a picturesque backdrop.

What you did there:
During my visit, I explored the city's diverse neighbourhoods, including the trendy Yaletown and the bustling Granville Island. I also visited Stanley Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America, which offers breathtaking views of the city skyline and the Pacific Ocean. One of my most memorable experiences in Vancouver was hiking the Grouse Grind, a steep trail that leads to the summit of Grouse Mountain. The hike was challenging, but the stunning views from the top made it all worth it.

And explain why you want to go back there:
I want to go back to Vancouver primarily because I feel like I only scratched the surface of what the city has to offer, and I would love to explore more of its neighbourhoods and attractions. Additionally, Vancouver is known for its friendly and welcoming people, and I would love to immerse myself in the local culture and meet more people. Finally, the natural beauty of Vancouver is truly awe-inspiring, and I would love to spend more time exploring the city's parks and mountains.
