We already know the existence of the rural and city live. Both of them are very different. They have their disadvantages and advantages.

Air in the city is very bad, full of pollution from the cars and motorcycles.
  • Scenery
Every time we see, to every direction, we just can see building and car everywhere.

Advantages of rural live
  • Fresh air
Rural still has healthy fresh air, which is very difficult to found it here.
  • Scenery
Rural has very beautiful scenery like mountains, birds, flowers, trees, and many more.

I’d prefer to live at the city. City is more modern and has easy access to everywhere. For the place to live, I choose apartment. I think apartment is an ideal place for me because it has easy access to my school. Beside that, I love the scenery from terrace. I can see the sunset clearly from my room.
