Introduction and Where you would like to go?
Well, if I get the opportunity to visit any place I want, there is no doubt that Bali would be at the top of my list.

Bali is a beautiful island located in Indonesia, known for its stunning beaches, vibrant culture, and lush green landscapes. It’s a place that has captured the imagination of travellers worldwide and one that I would love to visit in the future.

The best time to visit Bali would be during the dry season, which runs from May to September. During this time, the weather is sunny and warm, with low humidity and minimal rainfall.

It’s the perfect weather for exploring the island’s many attractions, including its beautiful beaches, rice terraces, temples, and waterfalls.

I would love to go with friends or family members who share the same interest in adventure and culture. Bali is a great place to explore with others, as there is so much to see and do, from surfing and diving to visiting traditional villages and markets.

The reason why I want to visit Bali is because of its unique culture and natural beauty. Bali is known for its ancient temples, colourful festivals, and traditional dance performances, which I find fascinating.

And explain why you want to visit the place.
I would love to learn more about Balinese culture and history and experience its vibrant traditions firsthand. In addition, Bali is home to some of the most stunning landscapes in the world, including beautiful rice paddies, lush forests, and scenic beaches.

I would love to explore these natural wonders and participate in outdoor activities like hiking, snorkelling, and surfing.

Overall, Bali is a place that has so much to offer, from its rich culture and history to its stunning natural beauty. I hope to visit this beautiful island in the future and experience all that it has to offer.

Model Answer 2:


  • I have lived in Punjab all my life, and because Punjab doesn’t have a coastline, I have never been to any beach.

Where you would like to go?

  • So, in the future, I want to visit the beautiful beaches of Goa.
  • Goa is about 2000 kilometers from Punjab.

When you would like to go?

  • The best time to visit Goa is during the winters as summers are very hot and sweltering, making it impossible to enjoy.
  • Therefore, I would like to go there in December or January.
  • Moreover, many people in Goa are Christians, and Christmas is celebrated with a lot of pomp and show there.
  • If I go around December 25th, I would get to take part in the Christmas festivities as well.

Who you want to go with?

  • I want to visit it with my whole family, including my parents and my sister.

And explain why you want to visit the place.

  • I have heard a lot about Goa from my friends and family.
  • It has some of the most beautiful beaches in India.
  • Additionally, as it was under Portuguese occupation for a long time, it has a very unique culture.
  • Another reason I want to visit Goa is to experience the beautiful churches and forts.
  • The churches have a unique Indo-Portuguese architecture that is not found in any other part of India.
  • It’s not well-known, but Goa also has one of the largest numbers of hill forts in the country. Many people hike to the top of the forts on foot and then come down.


  • My parents have promised me that they will book our tickets if I secure good bands in the IELTS.
  • So hopefully, I will be able to visit it this winter.
