Describe a plan

• Who is involved in the plan
And say how you did/think you will achieve the plan.


Well I just turned 18 this year, so apparently it is time for me to plan something special for the future. There are many things that I could do, but one of the plans that I find the most intriguing is to go travelling to Singapore.

I came up with this plan after I had finished my university entrance exam in June, and three of my best friends have decided to come with me. So we kind of feel that after 12 years of hard work and constant studying that taking a break is really essential. I think we all decided on Singapore because it’s such a modern city with such a clean environment, and not to mention the fact that it’s so close to Vietnam, it’s just a short flight.

Technically we’re all just barely adults so it might take some time to persuade our parents to allow us to go on this trip together though.

First of all, we decided that it is vital to choose a tour, because going on a tour will make our parents feel more secure. It might be quite boring though due to the lack of spontaneous activities, but it seems like it’s the best option to persuade our parents.

Another thing to consider is the price of the tour. If it’s too expensive, I’m afraid our parents will not let us go either, so choosing an affordable tour is a must.

Apparently, we must book our plane tickets in advance too, not only to get the cheapest price but also so that we are more well-prepared. When we reach Singapore, I think we will be polite tourists, listen carefully to the tour guide and avoid doing anything illegal. So that’s our great plan to achieve a much-needed vacation.
