Creative Writing Task 4

I heard that you and your family were interested in paying a visit to
Singapore. I hope that you would come! Do you mind if I suggest a few places that might interest you? I hope that you are keen to learn about both the cultural and modern aspects of Singapore.
I've found two very enthralling cultural places. You will get a glimpse of Singapore past through the beautifully restored shophouses, colonial buildings and modern buildings. Moreover, you will be able to visit landmarks of different faiths and if you are tired of walking, you can always take a ride from the past by riding on a trishaw around the vicinity. And if you ar feeling hungry, you can always pop into teahouses and quirky cafes for a quick bite.
Now, the other amazing place is called," Little India". By just walking around the colourful district, you would be amazed. There are also gaily painted shophouses that are selling traditional wares such as Indian apparel, gold bangles and spices. And one of the main reasons why this place is extra fantastic is that it's speciality-fish head curry, a uniquely Singaporean dish.
After taking a trip back into the past, it is time to enter the modern era. Let me share with you two modern places in Singapore which I think you would enjoy.
The first place is the Singapore Flyer. Prepare to be in awe as you admire the world's largest observation wheel. When in the flyer, make sure to buy a camera to capture the paranoic views of Singapore's iconic landmarks. Marina Bay, Merlion Park and Empire Place. So, there is a Real Flight Simulator, allowing us to take the role of a pilot! How cool is that? We could also have lunch there as we dine in style while enjoying the great breath-taking views of the city.
The next place is located in Marina Bay; it is the well-known," Gardens by the Bay". This place is a must go, and it is a place where we could walk and admire the beautiful living organisms. It has a man-made tree, going up to 50 metres! At night, these huge structures brilliantly illuminate with a kaleidoscope of colours to make the whole park even more spectacular. The place has different kinds of gardens to enter and I can promise all of them are amazing.
When you come to Singapore, you don't just come here for the attractions. You come here for the local food as well! If you like spicy food, here is what I recommend: Laksa, Chili Crab and Mee Siam.
If you don't like spicy food, then try our favourite Hainese Chicken Rice. I just can't wait to introduce you to these delightful dishes!
After all that I have just told you, I am sure you are even more interested in coming to Singapore!
