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.
