2019年6月1日托福独立写作范文：Do you prefer visiting popular places with many tourists or places with less people?
Where should people take a trip? Some may recommend sites that are less popular among tourists. However, I would prefer to enjoy myself at places that attract many travelers.
Well-loved sites give tourists better experience. One main reason is that the popularity of a tour site is the best indicator of the attractiveness of it. The more people love it, the greater satisfaction they get from the place. For example, the Hua mountain is a national hot spot for travelers which is famous for its steep cliff and cultural legacy left by ancient poets. Though I had heard the mountain on textbooks, I still had a challenging but excitingclimbing last year. While standing on the top, I enjoyed the view like a bird and also was proud of myself for finishing my rough way upward. In contrast, the Xiang mountain, a small hill that is only loved in Beijing which holds my college. After coming back from the hill this summer, I felt like I just took a walk in the ordinary park - nothing special. Clearly, popular sites are the first priority for travelers.
Of course, some may worry that well-loved sites are usually too crowded for tourists to have fun. This is because people mayrush to popular sites during the same vacations, usually on long nation-wide holidays. For example, five years ago my sister had a terrible experience in Forbidden City, a famous tourist spot of Beijing. Almost all her pictures werefull of heads of strangers rather than antique houses she loves because nearly each house was crowded by visitors. However, such concern is largely solved. Instead of buying tickets with all others at sites, tourists today can book them online. In addition, to enhance travelers’ satisfaction, authorities of famous sites now often set a reasonable upper limit on visitors at certain time.
Another concern over popular sites would be high prices. I admit that such negative impression used to be true. As tourists flocked to hot traveling spots, owners of hotels, restaurants and taxis greedily charged much more than normal levels. The price of a bottle of water could be fifteen RMB, five times larger than that one commonly pays. Sometimes, even though a traveler wanted to spend more on a hotel, he or she could not get it because it was in heavy demand. Nonetheless, regulations about unreasonable charge at tourist spots have been put into practice. Prices of all items including tourguides, restaurants now are set in a fair level, and travelers can see them in advance. Moreover, if planning a month ahead, a clever tourist can arrange every part of a journey at a discounted price.
To sum, it is a wise choice to travel to famous tourist attractions because one will have much fun.
