IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic:

Describe an educational trip you went on.

You should say:

  • where this place was
  • what you did at this place
  • who you went there with
  • and explain why you thought this trip was educational.


The most memorable educational trip I’ve been to is to Ninh Binh province. The place is well known for the beauty and peace of the scenery as well as the history of the Emperor who once set capital there.

This place is located near Hanoi, which is Vietnam’s current capital, about 60 kilometers away from the south. This province is popular for both domestic and foreign tourists. Among the most notable tourism attractions, Trang An – an impressive natural combination between river and mountain, making a breathtaking scenery, is the most famous. It used to be referred as “Ha Long Bay on the land”. Another famous place in Ninh Binh is Hoa Lư Imperial – which was built in Dinh dynasty in Vietnam, at the time when Ninh Binh was set as the capital of our country.

Admittedly, the trip to Ninh Binh was very interesting to me, and informative as well. During the trip, I was educated about Vietnam history, especially in Dinh dynasty’s time, and the geographical features of this place.


  • domestic: existing or occurring inside a particular country

Ex: the current state of US domestic affairs.
