Task：Some people think that tourists can learn very much about a place they are visiting on holiday while others think they cannot. Describe both these views and give your own opinion.
In recent years, traveling is a preferable choice for folks who desire to escape from the tedious daily routines and eager to experience something refreshing and enlightening. It is believed by some people that visitor sare able to learn much about their destinations while others hold the opposite idea.
On one hand, it is admitted that tourists can have a deep understanding of local history especially when paying a visitto ancient cities with precious historical sites and relics. For instance, Xi’an, as the capital of many dynasties in ancient China, where the Terra-Cotta Warriors and Daming Palaceare located is a vivid history book recording the notable achievements and splend or architecture of Qing and Tang dynasty. In addition, if traveling outside the national boundary, travelers have the chance to experience exotic and appealing cultural customs. In Japan, people prefer to wear kimono (an item of traditional Japanese clothing) to attend wedding or formal ceremonies. Also, as soon as the sakura (cherry blossom) are in full bloom, Japanese people would have a picnic with friends or families under the sakura trees, chatting and drinking.
On the other hand, it is understandable that nothing about the visiting place can be learnt. Supposed that taking a vacation in an island resort, all tourists can do is to lie on the beach, swim in the sea, view the sunrise or sunset and enjoy a spa after a day’s sun bath. Having a good relax of their minds and bodies are the first priorities. Besides, for some people, joinery is a time when they could just appreciate attractive scenery and grand beauty of nature as well as taste gourmet cuisines rather than aggravating the burden on brains.
In conclusion, as far as I am concerned, the aims of traveling vary with each individual, which determines whether people could understand the local history and traditions or not. Anyway, travel provides an unparalleled opportunity to explore the world and human inner heart.
