Đề mẫu IELTS Speaking Holiday Part 1

To be honest, having a day off would be a huge blessing after being plagued with deadlines and school work on a regular basis. I’d have the opportunity to spend time with my friends, play my favorite games, or simply relax in my room while listening to music. As a result, I’d say I look forward to each holiday throughout the year.

I favor long-duration vacations, the kind that give you seven to ten days off work, like Christmas in the West or the Lunar New Year in the East. I believe that if we are given that much stress-free time, we can rebalance our lives by spending more quality time with family and friends.

Holiday seasons in large cities such as Hanoi offer a diverse choice of fascinating activities for people of all ages. I adore going out to dine with my buddies. We don’t see one other very often because of the hectic lives of university students. I also enjoy going on picnics with my family or taking visits to the outskirts of Hanoi. These are really rare occasions when I am able to get away from the madness of the city.

To be honest, I’ve never gone on a solo trip. It’s a little disconcerting to imagine yourself stuck in the middle of nothing, so I’d rather have company. However, while I’m still young, I’d like to stretch myself by moving outside of my comfort zone, so a solo trip could be a big challenge.

I’m guessing that the majority of us will spend time with our loved ones. However, I feel that the holidays may be an excellent time for people to explore their hobbies or perhaps start new ones. My father, for example, is really enthusiastic about gardening. But he won’t be able to properly care for it until the weekends. It’s simple to see why he was so happy throughout the holidays.

Last summer, my family and I traveled on vacation to Nha Trang, a beach city in southern Vietnam. Traveling with family, in my opinion, is one of the most rewarding experiences we can share. I really enjoyed the times when we shared meals and engaged in various outdoor activities such as touring, swimming, snorkeling, or experiencing new cuisines and learning about local customs.

Well, I believe I enjoy the holiday season because it allows you to take time off work and spend undisturbed time with your family, strengthening family relationships. Holidays also provide new adventures and extra time to travel to areas you’ve been wanting to see, sample new cuisines, learn about new cultures, and broaden your horizons.

The Vietnamese Lunar New Year – Tet, is one of my favorite festivals of all time. It’s the ideal time of year because we can take a week off work and spend time together as a family. We make everything look beautiful and pretty, putting everyone in a good attitude. We now have the opportunity to invite our pals over to chat and enjoy one other’s company. Plus, during the Tet holiday, we eat our favorite foods and think about being polite to others, which produces a pleasant chemical in our bodies.

Well, I frequently engage in physical activity. I enjoy cycling about town, taking a walk outside, and participating in my favorite sport or even trying something new. Any of these hobbies are beneficial to one’s health. In addition, I enjoy going on road trips with friends or family, and we frequently discover interesting new areas to visit, such as visiting a town we have never been to or having an adventure in the woods.

Tet is our most important Spring holiday, after all. Families frequently visit their friends, neighbors, and relatives during New Year’s Days, which normally last 5 days, to wish them good luck and fortune in the next year. Tet Holiday is especially exciting for children because they are given fortunate money and are permitted to eat as much sweets and snacks as they wish. The whole family spends time together and feasts on a variety of traditional dishes.

Vietnamese people generally cook a variety of traditional foods for each meal during the Tet festival. If you ask anyone in Vietnam which meal comes to mind when they think of Tet, I’m sure they’ll say banh chung and banh tet. Both of those are Tet staples. Vietnamese sausage, or Gio Cha, is another popular dish. The fillings for gio cha are lean beef sauced with fish sauce and pepper and wrapped in green leaves to keep them fresh for weeks.

Describe a vacation you took.

You should say: 

  • Where you went. 
  • Who you went with. 
  • What you liked/didn’t like. If you choose to take a similar vacation in the future.

I’m going to write about a trip I took to Barcelona around 7 years ago, despite the fact that I’ve been fortunate to go to numerous countries.

First and foremost, Barcelona is a significant Spanish seaside metropolis. It is known for its beautiful architecture, gastronomy, and culture. It’s perhaps one of Europe’s most visited tourist spots. The flight was lengthy, but totally worth it!

Actually, I traveled there alone. I was on leave from work and hadn’t taken a vacation that year. Because most of my friends were preoccupied with work, I booked a flight on the spur of the moment! I was apprehensive because it was my first time traveling alone, but it turned out to be an incredible experience.

I instantly recognized why Barcelona is such a well-known city when I arrived. The old structures left a lasting impression on me. The city contains many architectural marvels. Needless to say, I snapped a lot of pictures! Furthermore, the locals were friendly and helpful in orienting myself. To be honest, I didn’t like the local cuisine. It wasn’t my cup of tea because it was so different from the meals here.

If given the opportunity, I would return to Europe. The trip exposed me to a new culture, and despite the fact that I didn’t eat much while there, it was a fantastic experience. Unfortunately, I will not be returning to Europe anytime soon because I am now concentrating on my academics. If I could go back, I would like to share the experience with some of my closest friends.

Describe a recent vacation that you took.

You should say: 

  • Where you went 
  • How you got there 
  • Describe what you did there and whether you enjoyed it.

I’d like to discuss a vacation I took a few months ago in the south of Vietnam.

I traveled with my parents to Nha Trang, a gorgeous coastal town where we decided to go so that they could observe living on the beach and see a different area of the country.

We traveled there via plane from Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital. The flight took roughly an hour and went without a hitch. We were one of the first people on board and one of the first people off the plane when we landed. It was unquestionably faster and more convenient than taking the train, which may take up to 15 hours.

We barely got to do a few things throughout our three-day trip because there was so much to do. We took a sail around the islands then went inland for some sightseeing. Taking a cooking class was a lot of fun since we got to buy fresh ingredients from the local market and learn how to fry fresh fish and other shellfish like crab and lobster in a wok.

We had a great time and if given the chance, we would return to the location.. We will never forget seeing the colorful lifestyle of the natives and having the opportunity to explore stunning surroundings. It was a once-in-a-lifetime vacation for my parents, and they’re still talking about it. If I could live there, I would.

Life is far too short to waste it doing the same things over and over again, being “bored” to death. The only way to break free from this “boredom” is to do something different every now and again, and there appears to be no better way to do so than to go on vacation. People take vacations to enjoy their lives a little more and have some fun, which helps them to relieve stress and boost their immunity. According to several studies, those who do not take holidays have a 21% higher chance of mortality from all causes. When you go on vacation, you feel more optimistic about your life and the world around you because you are exposed to new locations, human behaviors, cultures, and alternative ways of doing things. In other words, going on vacation works as an unstructured education for you, where you acquire “treasures of teachings” that you would not otherwise be able to obtain.

It is critical for families to spend their vacations together since we tend to compromise our relationships, especially within our families, whether we are working or doing something. In fact, we often miss out on family reunions and frequent bonding chances because “job deadlines” take precedence in our lives. We will have to wait a long, long time if we wait for our retirements to make up for missed time and opportunity. Fortunately, we can make up for lost time and opportunities by spending holidays with our families whenever we have the chance. In other words, we should never underestimate the ability of holidays to strengthen our bonds with our families, even if it only means spending an hour together over a family meal.

Some people go on vacation because traveling alone may be a freeing experience, allowing them to do precisely what they want, when they want, and how they want. There will be no disputes, no compromises, and no stress about where to go and what to eat if you travel on vacation alone. Some people also prefer to travel alone since they don’t want to put up with their fellow travelers’ “annoying” behaviors.

We can argue all we want about what kinds of vacations will be popular in the future, but one thing is certain: some will be far more “high-tech” and “luxurious” than they are now. Interestingly, The Guardian, a popular UK newspaper, published a news article in 2014 on what types of vacations would be popular in the future (in 2024, to be exact), in which it predicted that travelers would “have no need to encounter a single human being” from the time they check in to the time they check out! To put it another way, robots will perform the work. Indeed, hotel rooms will be transformed into digital, hyper-interactive settings, with electronic devices inserted in the pillows to massage your neck and wake you up in the morning! If that wasn’t shocking enough, just wait until you read what else the newspaper had to say! “The walls will display high definition photos of your friends and family, hologram personal trainers will hang out with you, and the shower will employ sound technology to “agitate” dirt from your body, utilizing a traffic light system to signify when you’re clean enough to get out,” it went on to claim. Sounds interesting! Isn’t that so?

I would reply that I would love to spend my vacation in my own country because it offers everything from blue and gorgeous coastlines to mountains and snow, as well as abundance of green places and unique architecture. In fact, my country is one of the top ten most visited countries in the world, with over 30 million visitors each year. As a result, I’d prefer see my own lovely country than travel to distant foreign lands. Furthermore, vacationing in my own nation would make me feel much more at ease and protected. Furthermore, because my country is so huge, I haven’t seen most of the areas and spots within it. So, if I go to some of those places, I’m likely to witness something truly unique right here in my own country without having to travel to another country. Of course, I have no objection to visiting another country; yet, given what I currently have in my own country, I would always choose my own country as a popular vacation spot above others.

When taking a vacation in a foreign nation, people may encounter a variety of issues, particularly if they do not speak the local language. For example, you might misplace your valuables or become disoriented when traveling from one location to another, and you’d be in serious difficulty if you couldn’t adequately explain your difficulties to the locals. You’d also have a hard time acclimating to new food, no matter how “strange” and tasty it seemed. However, being very sick while on vacation in a strange location would be the biggest issue. With no family or close friends (given that you are traveling alone) and no proper health insurance, your life in a foreign nation could be in grave risk if you become ill.
