Thousands of people rush into cities each year. Some come for education. Some come for shopping or sight-seeing. Some come on business. But most of them, attracted by the job opportunities and modern life, come to stay.
There are some advantages for the people living in a big city. First the people who live in a big city can enjoy the miracles of the latest technology of the human being. Most cities have some facilities of popular science. People can go there and understand science knowledge. Second, the big city can provide many conveniences in transportation and traveling for the people who live in the big city. For example, they can travel with the magnetic suspension train whose maximum speed can attain 400 km per hour. They can take the subway to work every day. Another advantage that city people can enjoy is that they can live more convenient and entertaining. There are a lot of supermarkets in the city. When you need something, you could just go and buy them in supermarkets. As for cultural recreations there are many cinemas and concerts halls in the big city.
However living in a big city has some disadvantages. Population and noises, mostly from factories and cars, severely affect people’s health. As hundreds of people rush into big cities, the population of cities has rapidly mounted which results in crowed buses, a lot of traffic jams, many traffic accidents and poor housing conditions. Frequent traffic accidents threaten people’s lives.
People may have many opinions about living in a big city. Some would think city life is too boisterous and roaring, whereas others may enjoy it. It all depends on one’s personal point of view and experiences. As for me, I was born in the big city, and I am used to everything here. So I will choose city life.
I think living in a big city is much more convenient and comfortable because the transportation is very good and you can go anywhere easily and fast. There are lots of big malls, supermarkets, banks, theatres, parks and so on. Every coin has two sides. There is much more pollution and noisy in big city. Too many people make the city crowded.
People enjoy city life chiefly for its conveniences. To begin with, the city provides fast transport, with roads and buses leading to every corner. Then, there are department stores and shops all over the city, where you can buy all kinds of goods you want. Besides, hospitals and other services are all with easy reach. Indeed, whatever you need is, you can easily get what you want.
However, cities are confronted with many problems. One is the housing problem. For example, it is not uncommon for two or even three generations to share an apartment. Another is noisy. Finally, there is the problem of competitive atmosphere. For example, people who have been in the apartment block may well be strangers to each other. In short, the city is only a place for business, to be visited occasionally. It is not an ideal place for permanent residence.
A village is composed of small population that is not advanced whereas a city is very advanced and has large population. Life in a village is completely different from life in a city. This difference is like distinction between earth and sky.
These lifestyles are totally different from each other. It is hard to find similarities between persons of different characteristics and same as with life in villages and cities. Cities are getting more advanced everyday and it has forced people to leave their village pride behind and become more city oriented. City and village life has characteristic that are similar and different.
Village life and city life are somewhat provincial. People cant think of a life beyond the boundaries of their village or their city. Villagers think that villages are the best place to live, and people living in urban places think that they are more fortunate. There are some similarities between both locations. Children in the villages have their desires and ambitions like city children. They also want to be something in their lives. Villagers, like urban people, are hard workers.
