II. Describing a place
You have read about a famous tourist place, Andaman. After reading the description don’t you feel that you have actually visited the place? This is because the author has given a vivid picture of the place through the description of the place and the activities. When you want to describe a place you need to find answers for the following questions:
  1. Where is the place located? What is it famous for?
  2. How can one reach there? How is the weather during the time of the visit?  What is the best time to visit? What things to carry? What sort of accommodation is available?
  3. What places and things can be seen on the way to the place?
  4. What are the major tourist attractions?
