In the countryside live a lot of families with their children because the houses there are bigger and they usually have got gardens and houses in the countryside are cheaper. It is a fact that there isn’t so much traffic and industries. This is why it is healthier to live in the countryside. There is also a lot of unspoiled nature where you can do outdoor sports like mountain biking, hiking or swimming. When thinking of schools you’ve got more individual teaching because the schools are smaller.
Besides, people in the countryside enjoy more tranquillity than those in big cities. There is less noise and life is calm and relaxed. Once on foot in the city, you find yourself in an ant colony, or a cage with too many rats. As for food, it is fresher in the countryside. Farmers sell fresh produce, which they bring straight from the fields, at their stand just around the corner. Moreover, the city is rife with violence and crimes: Many thefts and murders often take place in the city. On the other hand, the city has its own benefits. Both the countryside and the city have special qualities. Our choice –whether to live in a rural or urban area - will depend on factors such as personality, mood, background, habits etc. We should also try to create a world having advantages of both lives.
Richard continues his exploration of Britain's great countryside. He sees the lakes and mountains of Scotland and two of the world's natural wonders: the Giant's Causeway in Ireland and the magnificent Durdle Door in Dorset. Sarah : Well, Durdle Door used to be part of a big wall of rock that joins up with rocks you see in the water. That would have been the old coastline many thousands of years ago. The sea's worn it down over many years, leaving behind the rocks that you see now.
Furthermore, people in the countryside are more conscious of keeping their surroundings clean and so there is little throwing of rubbish everywhere, only at designated places. This is unlike the cities where if the garbage trucks do not collect the rubbish disposed by household or restaurants, the city will be overflowing with rubbish! This will attract the mosquitoes, fly, rats and wild dogs to pollute their surrounding that will cause them to have diseases like dengue and cholera. Thus, for me to enjoy the quality of life, I prefer to live in the countryside. City In my opinion, one has not experienced life until one has lived in the city. There is so much to see and experience in the bright lights of the city that you cannot get in the countryside. Here in the city, you can learn about how to get along with people of different types, encounter varied situations and solve problems.
Would you like to live in the countryside in the future? 2. What do people living in the countryside like to do? 3. What are the benefits of living in rural areas? 4. What’s the difference between living in the city and living in the countryside? Well, yes, I really love to live in the countryside if possible in the future because I find that life in the rural areas are less stressful and people are more relaxed, friendly and family-oriented, whereas people in the cities are just like ants. I feel that there are many benefits of living in the countryside. For example, the cost of living is stunningly low, including groceries, food, water bill, property taxes. Almost everything is less expensive than the same ones in the city. Besides, the life in countryside is more peaceful because there are simply less distractions. For instance, there aren’t cars going by constantly.
In addition, I believe that city provides more work opportunities than the countryside. There are not only more jobs, but they are also well-paid. Of course living in a city is more expensive, but incomes are higher too. Moreover, in the urban areas there are also more citizens what means, that the culture diversity is huge. Meeting and knowing new people's tradition is an unforgettable experience, which could influence on one's previous habits. Furthermore, the city has well-organised lines of transport
In contrast, the air in the countryside is much cleaner than that in a city, due to absence of certain pollutants. The availability of space as well as fresh air is beneficent to one’s health and healthy living. The city has quite a stressful environment, with all the hustles and bustles. But in the countryside, one can live in a calm and peaceful environment without the immediate stresses of work, noise, and pollution. Living amidst nature make us physically strong and stable. Another advantage of living in countryside is that, people live in close knit communities and much comfortable social milieu. In cities, we do not know others, or wish to make acquaintance with our neighbours. But in the countryside, a social life is important. People there have much more fellow feelings and come to each others help in need and emergencies.
