Comment on the following statement:
|One should read about historical sites before sightseeing. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
In my opinion, one should read about a place he or she wants to visit before going there. First of all, if a person reads something before visiting, they will remember the information they are told better. For example, there is a saying, “revising is the mother of education.” Secondly, one does not need a guide if people ahead of time learn about the places they want to visit themselves. For instance, a person can read everything in books or the Internet and then go to the place just to see what they want with their own eyes. It can save a lot of money for the traveler.
At the same time there are people who think that one should just go to a place and see it without learning about it ahead of time. They will get more positive emotions because of the surprise created from visiting a new place.
I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. Every interesting place has some history that cannot be seen ‘from just looking at a place. Knowing this history beforehand gives visitors more positive emotions.
In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight, it is useless to read about a sight before going there but in actual fat it makes one’s memories and impressions stronger. Thus, I strongly believe that it is worth reading information about a place before going there.
