Some elements of this text to consider:

  • This article is fairly long and detail – it is longer than an actual Paper 1 text.
  • The amount of information in the article indicates that is aimed at more than a casual potential traveller.
  • The author uses the first person fairly frequently. This is a fairly common device in travel writing.
