Describe another city you would like to visit for a short time

1. IELTS Speaking Part 2 Sample & Ideas: Describe another city you would like to visit for a short time 

TOPIC: Describe another city you would like to visit for a short time. 

You should say: 

  • where the city is 
  • why you want to go there
  • whom you will go there with 
  • what you will do there 

and explain why you would like to stay there for a short time.


[lead-in] One city that has been on my radar for a short getaway is Tokyo, Japan.

[where] Tokyo is the bustling capital city of Japan, located on the eastern coast of the island of Honshu. This vibrant metropolis has always fascinated me with its unique blend of tradition and modernity.

[why] I’ve been yearning to visit Tokyo for its captivating culture, technological advancements, and exquisite cuisine. The city offers a perfect blend of ancient temples, serene gardens, and futuristic skyscrapers. Exploring the traditional neighborhoods like Asakusa and the ultra-modern districts such as Shibuya and Shinjuku would be an incredible experience.

[whom] If I were to go to Tokyo, I would love to travel with a close friend who shares my enthusiasm for Japanese culture and adventure. Exploring the city together, trying out delicious street food, and getting lost in the maze-like streets of Akihabara, known for its vibrant electronics and anime culture, would make the trip even more enjoyable.

[what] During my visit, I would immerse myself in the rich history and unique experiences Tokyo has to offer. I would visit iconic landmarks like the Tokyo Tower and the Meiji Shrine, stroll through the tranquil gardens of the Imperial Palace, and indulge in authentic Japanese cuisine, including sushi, ramen, and tempura.

[final thoughts] As much as I would love to extend my stay in Tokyo, I believe a short visit would be ideal. Tokyo is a fast-paced city that offers an overwhelming amount of sights and experiences. Staying for a shorter duration would allow me to get a taste of the city’s vibrant energy, immerse myself in its unique culture, and create memories that would leave me longing for more. Additionally, it would give me the motivation to plan future trips to explore other cities and regions of Japan, ensuring that I make the most of my time and experiences in the country.
