Dear Friends,

It has been a long time since we went on a vacation to Hong Kong. I am sure you are missing another adventurous trip. So, I have planned a unique trip to three wildlife sanctuaries in India this summer.

As we all know, India has the largest number of wild tigers in the world. I have arranged a safari to three of the most famous tiger sanctuaries – Jim Corbett, Ranthambore, and Bandhavgarh. We will be far from the hustle and bustle of the city and live in secluded jungle resorts with little modern amenities such as a television. The jungle safari will begin at 4 am and continue till 7 pm. This will be a grand opportunity to view the rich diversity of flora and fauna of India.

Together we have been to multiple destinations. However, all of them were urban. This trip will not only rejuvenate us by taking us away from the city life but also offer us immense opportunities to learn about nature. 

I look forward to your company on this exciting journey.

Your friend,

  1. Thanks for your great essays. I have a question, why yo don’t use contradict form for informal writing? Also, most of the sentences have a formal tone .
