Model Essay

Dear Tom,
I am so glad to know that you will be coming to Da Nang for a visit. Four years after graduation, we will finally have the chance to meet again! How have you been all these years? Still single, I guess?
You mentioned that you would like me to help you find a hotel. Actually, you can stay with us because we have a spare room and you know my wife and my son are both looking forward to meeting you!
As to the places worth visiting, I think Hoi An Ancient Town is a must for all visitors to Da Nang. In Hoi An, you will have a chance of seeing one of the most prosperous trading ports of Vietnam in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. For the next days of your journey, I suggest you visit the Marble Mountains with arrays of wonderful caves and pagodas. In addition, the 400-year-old Non Nuoc Arts Village, where you can buy marble handicrafts as souvenirs, certainly deserves your time of visiting.
Finally, a kind reminder – as the weather in Da Nang is getting colder, you had better bring more clothes with you.        Don’t forget your camera either.

Let me know your flight number so that I can pick you up at the airport.
Best wishes,
