1、Some people think it is a valuable experience to travel abroad, whereas others believe it is a waste of time and expense since people already have TV programs and the internet nowadays. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
The industry of international tourism has been greatly boosted, which is facilitated by the increase of curiosity among civilians towards alienate cultures as well as the advancement in economic situations within different natural boundaries. Although, under the assistance of high-tech devices and innovative programs, it is still of great value to experience a foreign country in person.
What is unquestionable about the rationality of supporters who regard international travel as a waste of time and money is that the renovated shooting technology, high-definition of TV screen and the widespread network cables have already enabled people to embrace knowledge and gorgeous views from almost every corner of the world without stepping out of their bedroom. The vivid scenes of different programs cannot only offer audiences with almost genuine experience of traveling, but also can better convey related knowledge through narrations of instructions. The convenience of the cyber space can also satisfy the demands of every explorer with a free platform to share and exchange opinions. Hence it is understandable for such a group of people to hold the view.
The real circumstances, however, shall never be learned without being personally on the scene. The pictures and expressions provided by TV programs and the internet can merely offer two-dimensional viewing experience whereas wandering around a foreign country will pave direct access to the real lifestyle, underlying cultural characteristics and traditions of the particular country. Compared with watching and internet surfing, international trip can also help to relieve tensions and stress accumulated in routine work and study through living a different life people never had before with the sense of curiosity serving as the source of motivation.
From my perspective, it is highly valuable for people to set on international travel, during which people can both please their eyes through appreciating the natural beauty and ease their minds through breaking from the present status quo.
2、People can eat a wide variety of food that can be grown in other areas. As a result, people eat more food produced in other regions than local food. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages.
The innovation of both logistics transportation and refrigeration technology have already enriched residential dietary selection, people therefore obtain more opportunities to approach diverse food from all over the world and plenty of local food is meanwhile substituted by the exotic one. Personally, I do not think this tendency is absolutely positive.
Admittedly, visible benefits could be found under this change. Firstly, it could provide citizens with a wider range of options, extending their selections of ingredients beyond home-produced vegetables, fruits and meat, which could better cater to their appetite. Besides, it could, to a large extent, prevent the monopoly of local food towards the local catering market by promoting the benignant competition between imported food and local food. Otherwise, dominated by local suppliers for a long term, the lack of competition would lead to the decline of food quality within local market.
However, compared with the merits this practice can provide, its drawbacks in the long run may be more considerable. First and foremost, when confronting with increasingly abundant dietary choice, it is of difficulty for dwellers to resist the temptations brought by multiple foreign foods, and the overeating phenomenon will gradually develop into normal state, which is noxious to the public’ s physical well-being. Moreover, delivering food from one place to another via long-distance airline or railway transportation will inevitably consume a host of fuels, causing the huge expenditure on delivery and transportation, thereby triggering the rise of prices in those imported commodities and reducing their cost-effectiveness.
To conclude, even though this trend enriches the consumers' dietary enjoyment, while[however], if this enjoyment was at the cost of environment[health], it would not be supposed to be advocated among the public.
