In recent years, there are an increasingly number of people tending to live in a big city. However, this is a considerable issue because it is known as a dream of many people, but it is also a nightmare of the others. In this essay, I will discuss some of reasons why living in the large city is popular, and what drawbacks do people face to ?
I will start by looking at advantages of living in a large city is that this is the place of high living standard. What I mean by people can feel satisfied in many aspects when living in a good condition with modern facilities and social services such as: health care, education, especially entertainment. There are various kinds of entertainment, including tourism attractions, shopping centers, cinemas, and so on. All of them can make people feeling of comfortableness and relaxation.
Secondly, when being in a large city, people often have opportunities to build and develop their career and business. Take my sister as an example. She has just moved her fashion shop to Pleiku city, and her income is very high because of having a large of customers, whereas it was a few month ago that her fashion shop experienced a slump in her hometown. This is because the cost of living is lower in rural areas than in urban. In addition, big cities attracts domestic and international investors, which provides good jobs with high income and chances to promote.
Turning to the other side of argument, polluted environment is a major problem, especially air and noise pollution. In big cities, not only high population density but also the heavy traffic are the reasons cause increase in emission and noisiness . This leads to environmental pollution and in some cases seriously affects people’s health.
Another issue is that big-city life is often lack of safety. In other words, big cities tend to have higher rates of crime due to poverty and density ; therefore, it is really hard to control crimes and social evils in a complex society such. Moreover, that the quality of road infrastructure is low can cause the serious traffic accidents and threaten to people’s life. Besides, traffic jams at peak hours and flood after heavy rain are no longer closed to the most of big cities.
All things considered, not only in a big city but also anywhere we live in, there are both positives and negatives. While the large city is the place where many people want to came to seek out their fortune , the others ignore this choice because of its complicated issues. In my opinion, when living in anywhere , it is really necessary to learn how to adapt our living environment, use of the benefits and avoid the drawbacks of big-city life.
