I usually travel by plane in summer with my family. The city I like the most is Seoul. It has many landscape and fresh air. However, I always have to come to airport before 3 hours, because I won't get on the plane if I come on time. Even if, I still like moving by plane, It is known as a fastest transportation, so I can save a lot of time.

Oh. I am twenty-two years old. But I have never been traveled by plane before. As you know, my country is middle-income, so it's very difficult for Vietnamese people to travel by plane. I think half past Vietnamese people has never been traveled by plane, and me too. If I have the opportunity to travel abroad, I will choose China. Because I love Chinese landscapes, culture, films, foods, etc..., Moreover, Vietnamese culture and Chinese culture have many similarities. So, I think China is the best choice.

I have never been abroad. But, If i want to travel, I will choose the island country located in the tropical or subtropical region. I really appreciate the clear and blue oceans, the sunshine, the passionate people, and the casual lifestyle at the seashore. The marine ecology of there is so attractive and can be experienced when we have some activities in the sea. Furthermore, the marine culture tells people that how important the respect and perseverance of lives are.
