In the summer of 2010, I had a good time in Nha Trang City. I and my friend went to Nha
Trang by plane. We stayed in a hotel near the beach for 4 days. This city is small but very
clean and romantic. It lies along the coast. The largest street of Nha Trang- Tran Phu
Street- is along the beach. Nha Trang is said to be one of the most beautiful and romantic
cities in Vietnam. During the time in Nha Trang, we visited some famous places such as;
Vinpearl Island, Pogana pagoda, enjoyed some local food and took mud bath. It was a

More and more people are rushing to big cities. That burderns these cities. I think that it is
difficult and unpleasant to live in a big city. First, the streets are always overcrowded,
traffic is so heavy. Traffic jam and traffic accidents happen very often. The air is polluted.
All the people living in big cities suffer from the bad effects of bad enviroment, easily get
sick and stressed. Second, the city is much more expensive than in the countryside so
people spend more and save less. Last, city life is very dangerous, the city people,
especially the young, always have to face many social vices.

reading; books, newspapers, magazines or I can listen to music without bothering the other
family members. My bedroom can be the place where I can text my close friends when I
like that. I love this place because of another reason. My beedroom is the only place where
I can sit and lie freely as I want. Besides, I can decorate my beedrrom in a way I like most.

My favourite kinds of movies are romance and comedy. Romance brings about good
feelings, comforts my soul, helps me relax and destress. I think everybody is moved by a
beautiful love story and I am not an exception. My favorite movie is Gone with the
wind. This film is about a pretty and strong girl who tries her best to overcome difficulty
in her life and find her happiniess. She is very gentle and cheerful in her daily life but
strong and thorny in hard situations. I can lean something from her behaviour and her
personality.Watching this film, I also know more about the US Civil War and the US
society during that time. It is the most interesting film I have ever seen.

I like watching reality shows and programs on TV very much. Of them, I am very
interested in the program named We seem never to be seperated. This program is made
by Thu Uyen and her partners. This program is live broadcast on last Saturday every
month. This is a humane and useful program. It helps many missing people find their
family. TV viewers are deeply moved by many reunions after a long time. People highly
value and support this program. I like this program because it makes me feel lucky and
happy, live better, try to do something to help our community.
