Every resort has its own advantages and specialties. However, if I were given the oppotunity to visit a foreign country for two weeks, I would prefer France rather than any other places. There are numerous reasons for which I make the choice, and I would like to explore three main ones here.
The first and also the most significant reason why I have longed for France is that French culture and history are strongly impressed on me. I am so fascinated in French literature that I spend almost all my spare time reading novels writen by French author, such as Hugo, Camus, Satre and so on. Both the romantic sense and philosophic style attact me. When I read, I feel like I am occupied with the imagination of the place where those wonderful works originate. Therefore, I desire much to see it.
Besides, the fantastic landscape in France is another important reason for my selection. Although I have never gone to France, I do see a number of movies and paintings about the country`s beautiful scenery and edifice. Not until I saw the unique style in French architecture, such as Gothic and Baroque, did I realize that this is the very place that fulfill my longing. France is where the Baroque style initiates and the Gothic style thrives, and the achivement is obviously great.
The last factor lies in the survey done by Yahoo. France has been the resort which has the most visitors throughout the world for five years. I may let this example speak for my tongue how attactive France is.
Finally, all the factors above are only a drop in an ocean. I think I don`t need to cite any more to show my favor of France.
