Sample Answer 1
To tell you the truth, I have a gigantic album, filled up with charts and pictures of the cities and countries I am inclined to visit. However, if you ask me one city, it would be Kyoto. It is an ancient capital of Japan that features a mixture of a classic city with modern neighborhoods.
Although there are varying reasons to visit this city, one of them is that its fusion of ancient and state-of-the-art infrastructure is breath-taking. Since it is one of the few cities in Japan that was not tinted during the second world war, Kyoto managed to retain its heritage and architecture.
This Japanese city is situated on the Honshu Island and is regarded the film and cultural centre of the nation. There are thousands of Buddhist temples, hundreds of shrines, gardens, ancient imperial villas, film studios, and more. One of the stunning things about this city is its extensive range of flora.
In addition to this, Kyoto is also an educational hub that boasts an array of higher educational establishments and universities. In the present scenario, there are numerous things one can do and diverse places to visit in Kyoto, including museums, galleries, tourist sites, non-tourist sites, and more.

I have a myriad of destinations on my must-visit list around the world. However, if I get the opportunity to choose one city, I would probably pick London, which is one of the most prominent capitals around the globe. I guess the reason why I desire to visit London has something to do with the fact that ever since I was a kid, I had always been amazed by the gorgeous and unique architecture of London. There are also some interesting facts about London that I want to witness in real life. One of them is the fact about the Big Ben tower. So far, many people see the tall clock tower and think that it is Big Ben. But in fact, Big Ben is a giant thirteen-ton bell inside the tower that is rung every two hours by a two hundred – kilogram hammer. The real name of the Bell is the Great Bell of Westminster. Besides Big Ben, lots of tourists also enjoy visiting Buckingham Palace, which is also extremely appealing to me since it is the home to the Queen of England. Watching the changing of the guard ceremony that takes place in front of the Palace’s gate will certainly be exciting. Buckingham Palace is also the second-largest working palace in the world after Brunei’s Istana Nurul Iman. Many other elements are making London so tempting to me and to pay this fantastic city a visit in the future. It is one of the items in my wish list.
