Who do not like travelling? We always imagine the scenario: carrying a backpack, travelling around the world with our love, doing nothing but enjoy the trip to our heart's content…
The National Day Holiday Golden Week has just come to an end in China. The week-long holiday is a peak period of Chinese tourists. All you manage to see are people wherever you travel! My god, I'm confused by so many people in a holiday. Doesn't one travel to relax himself or herself? Isn't it more tiring to squeeze through the large crowds?
What do you think is the point of travelling?
Let's listen to the answers by the Chinese and foreigners respectively:
Dānɡ rán yǒu yì yì lɑ ！ Wǒ xǐ huɑn qù wài ɡuó lǚ yóu ， chī ɡè dì de tè sè měi shí ， hé ɡè dì de tè sè fēnɡ jǐnɡ hé zhào ， ɡènɡ kāi xīn de shì hái nénɡ zài nà lǐ ɡòu wù ！
"It is surely significant! I like travelling abroad, tasting featured foods and take photos against the featured sceneries locally. And I feel the happiest about shopping there!"
Cái bú shì ne ！ Rén duō yōnɡ jǐ ， qù nǎ dōu yào pái duì ， nǎ hái hǎo wán ne ？ Wǒ jué de huì ɡènɡ lèi ！ Yǒu shí jiān yīnɡ ɡāi hǎo hǎo zài jiā fànɡ sōnɡ yí xià ， péi péi jiā rén cái duì 。
"It's meaningless at all! Everywhere are people and long queues! What fun to have? I would feel more tired in that case. Instead, I would rather relax at home and spend time with my family."
Suī rán lǚ xínɡ chánɡ chánɡ huì pènɡ shànɡ rén duō yōnɡ jǐ de qínɡ kuànɡ ， dàn wǒ jué dé zhè yě bú huì fánɡ ài wǒ kāi kuò shì yě 、 zēnɡ zhǎnɡ jiàn shí ne ！
"Although there will always be crowded tourists during a travel, I think it will not prevent me from expanding my horizons and increasing my knowledge!"
Surely, foreigners like travelling as well! Then what does travelling mean to them? Do they travel just for fun?
Lǚ yóu nénɡ rànɡ wǒ tǐ yàn dào bù tónɡ de wén huà hé shēnɡ huó fānɡ shì ， ɡǎn jué ɡènɡ jiā zì yóu ！
"Travelling enables me to experience different cultures and life styles. I feel more freedom during a travel."
Wǒ huì xuǎn zé rén shǎo de shí hou qù lǚ yóu ， yīn wèi zhè yànɡ nénɡ ɡènɡ hǎo de zài lǚ xínɡ zhōnɡ rèn shí zì wǒ hé tàn suǒ xīn shì wù 。
"I would travel somewhere when there are not many tourists. This way I'm able to recognize myself and explore new things better."
Wǒ jué dé lǚ xínɡ chú le ké yǐ dài lái lè qù ， hái nénɡ rànɡ wǒ xué xí dào ɡènɡ duō dōnɡ xi ， cónɡ bù tónɡ jiǎo dù qù rèn shí yí ɡè dì fɑnɡ ， méi yǒu bǐ zhè ɡènɡ bànɡ de le ！
"To me, besides getting fun, I learn a lot during a travel. I'm able to know about a place from different perspectives. It can't be better!"
According to foreigners, experience and study in a travel seems to mean more to them than getting fun does. Although everyone thinks differently, the most important is that everyone can enjoy the travel and gain something. This is what travelling really mean.
