On the first day, I just stayed in the hotel and rested.
On the second day, my brother and I went to Nanjing Road. It’s the busiest street in Shanghai. When we got there, there were lots of people. We walked from one shop to another.

Last month, I had a trip to Beijing with my family. It was really an impressive trip（令人印象深刻的旅行）. We all had a good time there.

On the first day, we got up at 2:30 a.m. to see the flag-raising ceremony. When we arrived at Tianan’men Square, there were already a lot of people. When the flag-raising ceremony began, people all made a video excitedly. The flag-raising ceremony lasted（持续） only a few minutes. And then we went to visit the Great Wall.

A trip to Beijing

People will spend four hours if they want to travel around it. All the things in it are very nice. Although they were made more than 500 years ago, they look very beautiful. When we were in Taipei Palace, we saw a special chair. It was for the emperor and it was made of gold. Each of the visitors said that it is really nice after they visited the Palace Museum.
When we went to the Great Wall, I was very excited because it is the most famous place of interest（名胜古迹） in China. On the way to the top of the Great Wall, I ran very fast all the time. When I was at the top of the Great Wall, I thought I was a hero!

Hello everyone，I’m …You can call me… I am a sunny and hard-working girl from Class... ，Grade 7 of ... Middle School. It’s my great honor to take part in this oral competition. The title of my speech today is “Traveling and Reading”.
As an ancient Chinese saying goes， “He who travels far（定从） knows much”. In my opinion，modern life is impossible without traveling. For me，there are two kinds of traveling. First, traveling on foot brings me many benefits（益处）. It can make me enjoy my holidays and many different life styles（生活方式）; it can broaden my vision（拓宽视野），let me learn more about other countries or cultures. Second, reading is another kind of traveling. It can bring me to the places where I can not go for the time being（因为时间的原因）（定从）. Books are the best friends of human being(人类）. Books make my eyes and imagination（想象力） enjoy the beautiful scenes through writers’ wonderful description.
I have been to Beijing，Nanjing，Shandong，Hangzhou，Suzhou and other places. At the same time，I have been reading many books of different world-famous writers. The places I’ve been to （定从）and the places I only travel on books （定从） both impress a lot on me（留下深刻印象）.
The above I mentioned（定从） is two kinds of my traveling. Wish you share with me my experience of traveling，no matter Whether traveling on foot or on books. Wish you enjoy my speech today .Thank you!
Travels on Holidays in China
Nowadays, more and more people like to travel in their holidays. The other day I read a report about the ways people spend their holidays（定从）. It is reported that in recent years several new holiday habits have been developed. Among them, the most interesting one is the growth of the so-called holiday camps .
From the report we can see that in 20XX, 40 percent of people stayed at home for holidays. But now the proportion(比例) has reduced to 9 percent. More people go out for fun. The proportion of camping and traveling abroad （国外旅游）was increasing steadily, from 10 percent in 20XX to 38 percent in 20XX, and 12 percent in 20XX to 26 percent in 20XX respectively. People enjoy the fresh air, clean Water and green hills when they go camping in the suburbs（郊区）. In 20XX, 38 percent people enjoyed going to the seaside while in 20XX only 27 percent prefer to go there. What great changes!
Why did those changes appear? I think there are several reasons. First, it’s because people can afford traveling（支付得起旅游）. Second, people prefer to pursue(追求)a high-quality and colorful life. Third, their attitudes（态度）to relaxation（休闲） have changed. Less people want to save much money by leading a simple life（过简单得生活）. In short(总之）, people's living standard（生活标准） today has been rising greatly.
