IELTS Speaking topic: A long car journey you went on

Describe a long car journey you went on.
You should say:
where you went
what you did at this place
who you went there with
and explain why you went on that journey by car.

The long car journey I’ve ever had was in last Spring Festival when we had 14-day vacation, so my family decided to have a trip to Shanghai by car. There were three people of us, so we thought that driving was a more economical and convenient way. We left Beijing about 7 o’clock in the morning and drove southward.

We didn’t constantly drive along but visited several other cities as well during our trip. For example, we stayed in the city of Xuzhou in the Jiangsu Province for two days because it was a historical city and there were many famous cultural heritage. After about four-day driving, we finally reached our destination. We visited many renowned places, like the bustling City God Temple, and peaceful Century Park, the gorgeous Yu Garden, and the breath-taking Pudong skyline, and tasted lots of indigenous food.

Travelling by our own car enables us to plan our itinerary freely, so that we can go somewhere very conveniently and don’t have to waste our time in the train station and airport. Besides, we can take and buy lots of things on the way and then put them in our car, which always makes our travelling fruitful.
