Since most of the cities now are populated at the same time polluted because of cars, improper waste disposal of many factory,indiscipline peoples i think i prefer country side where you can relax, can breath fresh air, hear just the noise of animals that surround you and seeing the amazing scenery. I like all the places he visited because all of them are appealing to me..

I'm studying in the cityside which is very crowded, noisy, dusty. I don't like to live there. My hometown in a countryside, this place have a incredibly landscape, from the natural coastlines in front of my village to the mysterious mountains behind and green extensive fields in the middle . It's absolutely plunning scenery, it's very beautiful, peaceful and tranquility.This place is said to be the one of most beautiful in my country.People there are very friendly,kindness.So I suppose this is the best place to live, to travel.

The countryside has fresh air,natural view such as lake,mountain and park.Cruises lake because we can see beautiful landscape.I prefer live in countryside

the view of the lake from the cruise is so interesting .

I prefer to live in a country side rather than a city side .

Dear LearnEnglish Team,
This is my point of view regarding the question, I am hoping of any feedback or correction of my statement. Thank you.
I like the view of countryside that has a farm and is near the lake because it is peaceful. The lovely Windermere Lake cruise of Richard interests me most because of the breathtaking scenery of the area, on the other hand I still prefer to live in the city but a vacation house might change my mind to live there.
