City life Score: 4.5 February 17th, 2018 by taka

There are many factors affecting our life, such as a working environment, weather condition in whole seasons, and the place to live. Some people prefer to spend their life in suburb area to relieve the city life stress. They usually say that a large amount of nature surrounding their neighborhoods also comforts them. However, I believe that successful life needs to be stimulating and living in the city offers many opportunities to meet a wide range of people and visit many events held in the city. Both diversity of people and easy access to such events improve life experiences.
First, there are various kinds of people living in or visiting the city. People from different backgrounds come together and do their business in the urban area. In the countryside, residents is always the same and sometimes it is called a closed community. On the other hand, in the city people from another part of my country or even from another part of the world come and interact each other. For instance, last week I got foreign friends and took them to my city. During that time, we exchanged ideas about their neighborhoods, global problems, and the fascination point of our city. I could not experience such precious time if I lived in the countryside. The diversity of people is a big advantage if people want to lead a successful life.
Second, in the city, there are many attractions and events that can change people’s point of view. For instance, my city has many museums, such as traditional museums, contemporary art museums, or museum of the city history. Every time visiting those places, interesting exhibitions nurture our interesting life in the city. For instance, the contemporary art museum did a famous foreign artist’s exhibition. It got many people excited because of its rare opportunity to encounter many masterpieces directly. I went there and felt the power of the artist's color in the painting. Although we can easily find such pictures on the Internet no matter where we live, the direct experience in the museum is much more worthy. City life has more possibility to meet such things than living in the countryside.
Therefore, city life is more advantageous than life in a suburb area. To succeed in life, the city has many chances to meet many people and visit events easily. Both of them stimulate and enhance our life.
