Why I Love The UK!
Britain is a country that attracts a huge number of visitors each year, this is because there is so much to see and do. In fact Britain is my favorite country to visit for this very reason. There is a lot to love about the UK and this is why so many people make the trip each year for their vacation.
There are a lot of reasons to love the UK one of the best is the history of the country. It has one of the most interesting histories of any country in the world, in large part because for so many years it was the most dominant power in the world. In addition they played a huge role in the founding of so many other countries so there is a connection with these countries. Britain has also done a great job of preserving their history which is on display all over the country for anybody to see.
One of the other things that makes the UK so great is that it is actually four separate countries. Most people think of the whole island as being England but this is not the case. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are in fact separate countries with their own cultures and this makes a visit to any of them very interesting. You will find as soon as you visit any of these places that there is a significant difference between the various countries that make up the United Kingdom.
For the tourist the UK offers something for almost everybody. There is of course London which is one of the world's great cities and well worth a visit. There is also the natural beauty of Wales for people who prefer the outdoors or the party atmosphere of Northern Ireland or the history of Scotland to see. In fact it would be a shame if you were to spend your entire trip in London simply because there is so much else to be seen if you get out of the city.
It is no surprise that the UK is one of the most popular tourist destinations, as mentioned there is a lot to see and do. Equally important it is one of the easiest countries to visit. It is fairly compact which makes getting around easy; although there is so much to see that you will not possibly be able to do it all. In addition the infrastructure for tourists is excellent. An additional consideration for American visitors is that they speak English which makes things a lot easier, although the people in some parts of the country can be hard to understand. All of this adds up to make Britain a great country to visit for anybody but particularly for people making their first trip overseas.
