IELTS Speaking Sample Part 2 - Your Favorite Type Of Weather

Updated: Jul 16

Describe your favorite type of weather

You should say:

  • What it is

  • When this weather usually occurs 

  • What you usually do during this weather

And explain why you like this type of weather


Having lived in Ho Chi Minh City for a while now, I can confidently say that my favorite type of weather is the dry season, which usually stretches from December all the way to April

So, when this weather arrives, I like to go around the city with my friends and take advantage of  the beautiful days. For instance, we often visit local attractions like the Saigon Zoo or take a leisurely stroll  along Nguyen Hue Walking Street, something that would be impossible during the rainy season. The dry climate is also a perfect time for foodies  like me to sit outside and enjoy specialty dishes  like pho, banh mi, and fresh fruit smoothies without worrying about sudden downpours .

What’s even better about this season is that I can sometimes treat myself to  weekend vacations at Vung Tau or the Mekong Delta. You know, the sunny weather allows me to freely engage in outdoor activities , from chilling on the beach to taking a boat ride through the rivers and canals.

Honestly, the biggest reason why I love the dry season in Ho Chi Minh City so much is because it allows me to immerse myself in  all my leisure pursuits . Whether it’s strolling around the city, enjoying food, or taking short trips to nearby attractions, the clear skies and warm temperatures just make everything feel more lively and energetic. Although some local residents may argue that rainy days are preferable for their sense of relaxation and coolness , the dry season will always be the best for an active person like me.
