Describe a tourist attraction you once visited – Talk about Travelling
You should say:
- When you visited it
- Where is it situated
- Whom you went with
- Explain what about it you like the most
I enjoy traveling, but my hectic schedule prevents me from taking many excursions during the holidays. I traveled to Sikkim with my family before the global epidemic began. Although I can’t recall the precise day, it happened around May of 2019. Even though it was July, the atmosphere was really relaxing. One of India’s smallest states, Sikkim is located in the country’s northeast. I’ve always had a stronger attraction to the mountains than the water. The most alluring aspect of mountains, in my opinion, is their innate tranquility and peace.
We began our journey in Pelling, a little town located at the base of Mount Khangchendzonga in the state of Sikkim in northeastern India. There are numerous monasteries and waterfalls in the town. Another similarly significant Buddhist shrine in Pelling is the Pemayangtse Monastery. On the same day that I went to Khecheopalri Lake, Rimbi Fall, Kanchenjunga Falls, and Singshore Bridge, I also went there. It ranks as Asia’s second-largest suspension bridge. The following day, we went to the Rabdentse Ruins, and that night, we traveled to Ravangla. Unfortunately, it started to rain, so on our way to Ravangla, the only place we could visit was Temi Tea Garden. The following day, we traveled to Gangtok. We stayed there and went sightseeing on several days. We went to Rumtek Monastery, Seven Sisters Waterfall, Banjhakri Falls, and Tsomgo Lake. When we weren’t sightseeing, we’d spend a lot of time in the Gangtok “mail,” as they called their markets for shopping. Nathula Pass was off limits since it had begun to snow severely. We went to Gangtok’s flower exhibitions as well as Yumthang, the flower valley. Everything was very peaceful and lovely, including the stunning snow-capped mountains, the waterfalls, the monasteries, the lakes, and the locals. Since then, Sikkim has deepened my passion for mountains. I had a special journey that I will always remember.
Describe a beautiful place you once visited – Talk about Travelling
You should say:
- When you went to this place
- Where it was
- Whom you went with
- And say why you liked it so much.
I just so happened to visit Darjeeling a few years ago. The exact date escapes me, but I do recall that it was soon after my class 10 board exam. It was an expedition that was organized by the administration of my school. One of India’s most picturesque hill towns, Darjeeling is situated in West Bengal’s northern region. It’s all about the breathtaking vistas of the snow-capped Kanchenjunga, the streams that meander down the mountain sides, the gorgeous tea gardens, the landscapes with firs, pines, and ferns, friendly people, and a blend of modern and colonial charm. From Kolkata to NJP station, we boarded a train. We then boarded a bus that had been reserved by the manager of our tour guide.
Along with our tour guides, there were fifty pupils and eight teachers present. On the bus, we received our lunch packs. We went to the charming toy trains in the Himalayas. Taking a ride on a toy train across the city when it was parked by the side of some mountains was quite picturesque. It was impressive to see the gorgeous mountain on one side and the hectic city life on the other. Additionally, we went to Batasia Loop, Tiger Hill, the ropeway, the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, the zoo, Rock Garden, and a number of other locations. There, we stayed for approximately a week.
We were permitted to shop in Darjeeling’s commercial district that evening, the fifth day. As it was an excursion, it goes without saying how much fun my buddies and I had. On the sixth day, we left for the NJP station, reflecting on the brand-new experiences and feeling sad that our much anticipated trip was coming to an end. We say goodbye to the most idyllic location of our dreams, but Darjeeling, the art of paradise, will always hold a special place in our hearts and minds.
Describe a short trip that you usually make (or, take) but dislike – Talk about Travelling
Since I live in Kolkata and attend school in Bhubaneswar, I detest traveling to college the most. The trip I occasionally have to take from Kolkata to Kalinga is the one I detest the most.
Every time I have a long break from school or anytime I want to spend time with my family, I travel back to Kolkata.
You will undoubtedly have home sickness if you were born and raised in a Bengali family. And I’m no different. Every chance I have, I simply pack up and head back home. So after the holidays are finished, I’ll have to travel back to Bhubaneswar.
Every time I go home, my mother spoils me so much that I never want to go back to the college dorm and live alone. Although the hostel has nice cuisine, it cannot compare to food that has been prepared at home. I therefore detest traveling because I dread having to handle things on my own when it’s time to return to the hostel. But there’s also another justification. The majority of the time, I have to go alone, and because the distance is great, I frequently grow weary of the same old trip. I generally take a three-tier AC, and the fact that the passengers are going to Puri with their family makes me want to go back. They are all to themselves, and being a grown up it seems awkward to reach out and start a conversation. Thus the dislike becomes stronger each time.

Câu hỏi Speaking Part 3 – Talk about Travelling
Do people in your country like to travel? – Talk about Travelling
Yes, Indians enjoy traveling. It takes a lot of time to travel through India. There are so many breathtaking and exciting locations here. India’s population is hence eager to move from one location to another. Indians are constantly eager to experience the risk-taking and intrepid moments through travel. Nowadays, whether Indians take a weekend or holiday, they typically travel with friends.
How has travelling changed, compared to several decades ago?
India has transformed, particularly in terms of travel, due to the country’s expanding economy and population. Nowadays, people travel in order to post blogs, photos, or videos of their travels on social media. The means of transportation have significantly increased, making travel currently more affordable, cozy, and rapid. These days, content creators travel, collect items, and publish them on social media, which is amazing. Nowadays, traveling is so convenient that anyone may take a lengthy vacation.
When do people travel (as tourists), whom do they usually go with?
For a long trip, a family vacation, or a weekend trip to a neighboring country, people typically travel with family, friends, or loved ones. Something within of us makes us want to grab our belongings and travel to a new location. During the months of April through May and December, most tourists travel to India, particularly the southern region, to experience the beaches with soft white sand and crystalline blue waters. Most tourists who travel to India do so with friends and family. Some people travel here with their loved ones to experience life’s most daring experiences.
Do you think travel can (or, does) change people’s ways of thinking?
I think that travel has improved people’s communication skills. People are now able to wait longer. People can learn a great deal more about the world around them through travel. The urge to interact with new people and discover a wide range of amazing, admirable things both grow as a result of travel. Simply by gaining experience, you develop into a well-rounded person. When we travel, we develop a stronger feeling of empathy and learn about various cultures. Another method for reviving our minds is social interaction. I really believe that travel shapes a person’s personality. They become less judgmental, more grounded, open-minded, more upbeat, and less prone to panic.
What are the disadvantages of not travelling?
The drawbacks of not exploring new places are numerous. Many health and educational advantages will be lost. We won’t be able to pick up new cultures or tongues. Lifetime-long memories will actually go away. If you don’t take a vacation and go on a trip, you won’t be able to handle the tension. You are also unable to recognize and value independence. You cannot increase your self-confidence. If you are not physically exploring new areas, you cannot fulfill your desire.
How do most people in your country travel to work?
In India, the majority of individuals own a car. It might be a four-wheeler or a two-wheeler. And others without access to a private automobile use local trains, buses, or other forms of public transportation. They occasionally take the subway as well.
People in cities used to like living downtown but now they prefer to live in the suburbs. Can you explain why?
There is a ton of unoccupied space in the suburbs. Most suburbs also have a certain level of tranquility and people go about their daily lives as usual. But as more people live in cities, the spaces there are getting smaller and smaller. The reduced cost of living in suburbs is another benefit.
What is the impact of vehicles on people’s lives?
Nowadays, owning a private vehicle is extremely prevalent. Our lives are made simpler because we can go whenever we choose. From one city to another, people are now beginning to travel. Their lives are now more pleasant thanks to cars. People have also developed a bit of a lazy streak, as evidenced by their propensity to use vehicles even for short trips, which results in significant fuel use.
Do people in your country prefer to walk or take a car for short trips?
In India, people will almost always choose to walk if the distance is only a small distance, such as to the nearest food store. Additionally necessary for a healthy metabolism is walking. Walking is recommended since it is, of course, excellent for the environment, strengthens our immune systems, gives us more energy, and keeps our hearts in good condition.
How can big cities deal with the problem of having many people crowded in the same place?
By giving individuals useful and reliable information to arrange a visit, we can assist people. Organize the time of trip, for instance. We can also upgrade the infrastructure in a location to ease congestion in that specific area. Additionally, we can encourage big business to develop technological parks in towns and suburbs.
Bài mẫu phần IELTS Speaking cho chủ đề Talk about Trave
Bài mẫu 1 – Talk about Travelling
5 years ago, when I was studying in Belgium, I had a chance to travel to a very small country which I had been dreaming of going to – Luxembourg.
When I had some days off, I just made the irrational choice to skip school entirely. I had heard of this tiny country, which is situated in southern Belgium, before that. This country was said to be magnificent in terms of its landscapes, prosperity, and hospitality. I then utilized an app to purchase a train ticket and assembled my travel essentials. It was my first time traveling alone, so I was both excited and a little nervous at the same time.
I stopped at the primary gas station on the way to Luxembourg, which took me about 3 hours. After that, I merely went for a walk to see if anything was different from cities in Belgium. Since Belgium and Luxembourg are both European nations and are located close to one another, their architecture is extremely similar; Luxembourg, however, is home to beautiful landscapes with historic castles. Since I could see castles being built virtually everywhere and that they had previously been used to run businesses or abbies where people made beer or other goods, I must admit that I was shocked.
It was a lot easier for me because I could speak some French, which was the primary language there. I communicated in the language to order local specialties and souvenirs. And the reason this trip stands out in my memory so strongly is because it gave me the opportunity to experience all the formalities and steps involved in crossing borders in European nations. Since I didn’t really have much time to explore them, I would definitely visit some of the museums if I had the chance to return.
Bài mẫu 2 – Talk about Travelling
We went to Digha on a road trip a few years back. My older sister’s bachelorette party was taking place. Ten of us were present, five of whom were her friends and five of whom were cousins. To get about, we reserved a ten-seater van. The environment was cool. I seem to remember it happened in 2018.
The initial several days passed quickly. The west winds then began. It’s known as Kalboishakhi in Bengal. Sea, rain, and storm don’t mix well. Beaches were off limits, and we were told not to venture beyond the hotel. As a result, we were confined to the hotel room and alone. Our journey was delayed when the return flight was canceled. The best season of the year, though, was here. We held gatherings where we engaged in gossip, memory jogging, and even movie marathons.
After a week, we were meant to come back. But after 15 days, we came back. The scenario was difficult, but we were enjoying ourselves. Near the water, the weather was frightening. Tourists weren’t outside. Even though the trip took longer than intended, I enjoyed it.
We had a lot to organize and coordinate for my sister’s wedding when we got back. However, we were belted up for whatever work stress was about to hit while keeping in mind the storm and the water.

Bài mẫu 3 – Talk about Travelling
We visited Puri last year while on a trip.
My family and I went on the trip together. We made the decision to go on a quick trip to lift our spirits because we hadn’t been anyplace for a while. My father has the constant practice of scheduling every location according to the days.
We took a day trip to Chilka and other surrounding locations to do some sightseeing. The day was scheduled to go till the evening. Everything went as planned up until my father made the decision to follow our driver’s recommendation. As a native, he was familiar with all the roads and turns. He was well-versed on the background of the temples and the locations. He suggested that we go to a few truly stunning temples. He also added that the history of those places was very intriguing.
We arrived back 3 hours later than expected, but the trip there was worthwhile because we lost. The driver took us to a little village close to Kalinga after we had visited three temples. We witnessed a variety of items, including handloom creations, that will live on in our memory forever.
It was a quiet, unremarkable village. The locals were incredibly modest. If he hadn’t recommended it to us, we wouldn’t have gone there. Both my parents and I enjoyed ourselves. I’ll go back there when I next travel to Puri.
