Dear Darrell, Aunty and Uncle

I am so glad that all of you are interested in visiting Singapore!  You should definitely come! You will have a pleasant and enjoyable experience here! I have seen the web page that intrigued you to come to Singapore. Based on that web page, I have planned a fun and interesting itenary for all of you to enjoy!

Since I know that you are keen to sample some local food, why don't you meet me at your hotel at 8.00 a.m? I will bring you to nearby places to sample a few local delights, such as rojak and satay for a hearty breakfast! Then we could go and tour around Little India. Little India is one of the most colourful districts and traditional places in Singapore. We can walk around the shophouses and see the many traditional Indian apparel, gold bangles, spices and other wares. You will be able to feel the traditional atmosphere in Little India.

We will then proceed to Chinatown where you will see colonial buildings and modern buildings built side by side. Chinatown is also the place where you can see religious landmarks of different faiths in the same vicinity. This is part of Singapore's unique multi- racial and multi- cultural background. Chinatown has many traditional medicine halls, teahouses and quirky cafes. There is a rich mix of both traditional and modern sides of Singapore in Chinatown. you will definitely be amazed by that. We can then proceed to have lunch. You can try many other delicious foods such as Hainanese chicken rice, chilli crab and oyster omelette. I am very sure you will enjoy this traditional cuisine experience. Food is Singapore's speciality.

I will then take you to the Singapore Flyer. This will be a breathtaking sight. The Singapore Flyer is the world's biggest observation wheel. When you are on the Singapore Flyer, you will be able to take in the scenic view of Marina Bay, Merlion Park and Empress Palace. This ride will show you the modern beauty of Singapore. You will surely be amazed and impressed by how much Singapore has changed as a young nation. From the traditional buildings in Little India and Chinatown to the modern structures in Chinatown and the glamorous city of Marina Bay, you will be able to see the drastic change clearly. After that, we will proceed back to the hotel and rest.

Well, that is the itenary that I have planned for you. I hope that it sounds good to all of you. I am really looking forward to seeing all of you in Singapore soon! Write back soon!

With love


  1. Overall, the writing is good but if you had rearranged the points to increase the clarity that you were answering the questions, it would have been better. And for the modern aspect, I could only take out one place that has some description of it. Thus, changing these problems could make your letter writing more better.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Very well written but you might also consider to add more of the persuasive technique.
