What is your dream living place? Considering its quiet cirumstance and beautiful surrounding secenary , some people are fond of small towns . Nevertheless, others prefer to big cities, which provide a more convenient life style for human beings. Actually, I think living in a big city is better, as it owns advanced transportation system, more resources in education and employment, as well as various entertainments.
First, cities contain advanced transportation system for people’s daily life. The subways, the bus line, the plane, the train, the taxi and so on, all of which provide convenient ways for citizens to get wherever they want in a short time. For example, the subways have become the most popluar transportation way in big cities. Compared with bus and taxi, people do not need to worry about busy travel and the pay is much cheaper by taking subway. However, in towns, the transportations are limited and people sometimes must drive by themselves , which wastes more money and is more dangerous. Therefore, because of the advanced transportation system, the life have beome more efficient and effective.
Second, cities provide more resources in education and employment. More advanced equippments, more professional teachers and more newest information can be acquired by us all. Many parents always choose to send their children to big cities to accept better education, in order to ensure they can enter a better university and get a better job in the future. Meanwhile, cities provide jobs with higher payment and more confortable working conditions for us. If you work hard, you can get more opportunities to promote or perform your ability. In towns, people can not get a wide horizon and seems to be superficial.
Finally, cities make people’s life colorful by providing various entertainments. The theaters provide latest movies to people to appreciate, the parks provide plentiful resources to do exercise, the restuarants provide delicious food for us and the KTV provides a perfect environment to gather with our old students. All the entertainments make people feel relax and happy after a whole day’s work. The pressure, the tiredness, the troublesome are deleted once they joined in such happy entertainments. Thus the entertainments promise a healthy situation both on mental and physical for us.
In sum, I prefer to live in cities considering all the aspects. Just as the famous saying, city makes life more beautiful.
