Tall buildings reach to the sky. Crowds of people walk past on their way to work. The roads are filled with cars and other vehicles. And the whole area is completely clean. It is the perfect example of modern city life.
friendly towards each other. We like to help each other. That is why we like to stay in the village.'
Country and City
People are always wondering whether the country or the city is the ideal place to live. If there is one preference-which I take leave to make a conclusion-then it is the country rather than the city that provides people with optimal living conditions. There widespread testimonies for it and the primary ones are listed as follows.
The foremost reason for dwelling in the countryside is the soothing and comfortable life provided by the pastoral view. Hardly anyone could resist the clean atmosphere, the friendly neighbors, the closeness to nature and the gentle pace of living. Those who have enjoyed the first cock crow in the morning, the twittering of birds in the tress and the breathtaking sight of the rising sun would go into rapture at only mere mention of the idyllic life. Relaxed suburban dwellers are able to hold a more positive attitude for life and achieve more accomplishment.
Another subtle explanation rests on the fact that country habitants are fortunate enough to enjoy the cozy and pleasant ambience of the family without exhausting social life. How satisfactory and refreshing it must be to have dinner together with your loved ones in the spacious and pastoral surroundings after a frustrating day! Furthermore, nothing can be compared with the joy of watching heart warming TV programs, playing convivial games and sleeping in the tranquil and relaxing atmosphere.
It would be far more difficult to acquire such pleasure for those urbanites. Consecutive and excessive recreations not only thrift money but also deteriorate people's health, which is the last thing one would like to encounter. Still, it will be a mistake to argue that nothing beneficial combines with city life since several accompanying merits also come along with it. Living in the metropolis means having more accesses to various people involved in multiple attractive cultures. Living in the metropolis also provides plentiful opportunities, both in career and studies.
Nevertheless, the fact that city life makes it more convenient to get a job does not prevent us from concluding that country life is more enjoyable as well as healthful.
Living in the city has both advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side it is often easier to find work, and there is usually a choice of public transport, so you don't need to own a car. Also there are a lot of interesting things to do and places to see. For example, you can eat in a good restaurant, visit museums and go to the theatre or to concerts. When you want to relax, you can go to a park and just sit on a bench and read a book. The city life is full of bustle and variety, and you don't need to feel bored. However, for every plus there is a minus. For one thing, unless your job is well paid, you won't be able to afford many of the things because living in the city is often more expensive than in the country. It is particularly difficult to find a good and cheap accommodation. Besides, public transport is often dirty and crowded, especially in the rush hour. But in spite of all the crowds, many people feel lonely in big cities. They don't usually say they are lonely - instead they say they have problems with their jobs, their home life, they say they can't sleep or work well or that they are unhappy. But when I speak to them, I find it is often because they don't know
enough people to spend time with or they find it difficult to meet people. There are thousands of people like this in Moscow - students away from their families for the first time, young people who moved to Moscow to work, mothers with young children, old people living alone. These people don't need hospitals or medicine, they need other people. For the last two hundred years there has been a tendency for people to move from rural to urban areas, mainly in search of work. For me the life in the country is wonderful - all this fresh air and the singing of the birds! What I like most about the country is that everyone knows everyone else, and they are friendly. In the city if you live in a block of flats, like me, you can be there for years and never even get to know your neighbours. There are some in my block I've never seen. There is a lot more crime and violence in the city than in the
The case for living in the country
Big city glamor? Balderdash. Try big city cost. If you want to live like a king (or at least be your own landlord), move to the country.
1. It's cheap. You have to actively try to spend more than $20 on a meal, even a good one. A movie still costs single digits. No one has a clue or cares what brand of clothing you're wearing, let alone whether your shoes, purse or belt are this year's season or last. And did I mention housing? You can live in a real house with multiple bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and a garage. Maybe even a pool. And you can own it for under $200,000. Yup, you read that right. I didn't leave off any zeros.
2. There's space – for you, for your dog, for your kids, between you and your annoying neighbors. An ad on the NY subway sums up: "Raising a baby in an NYC apartment is like growing an oak tree in a thimble." In the city, you live on top of each other. Your kids and your dog barely know what grass is. In the country, you have something called a yard. You run around, kick a football and chase fireflies. You go sledding and build snowmen on fresh snow that hasn't been trodden by hundreds of others. You can actually identify constellations because you see lots of them each night. You are fascinated by a lot more interesting animals than squirrels, and your dog acts like a dog, you don't have to carry around bags for its poop.
3. There are no billionaires. And frankly, few millionaires. To put it another way, there's a lot less income inequality. Since the cost of living is much lower, even those on the median family income (about $50,000 in the US) can have a decent life. You don't feel poor as you do in big cities where even those earning six-figures still believe they're "just getting by". In the country, you aren't constantly aware of your socioeconomic status. You worry a lot more about the weather.
4. You aren't reliant on public transit.You don't have to push your way onto an overcrowded subway car only to find yourself squashed next to someone who smells or elbows you. You aren't late because there's been a delay and some robot-like voice has to tell you about it over and over on the speaker. You can drive yourself where you want, when you want. Even if there's traffic (and there isn't much outside of cities), you can usually find another way to go. You are in control, and there's plenty of (free) parking.
5. You don't get suspicious when people are nice to you. People say hello and "how are you" and generally mean it. You go to the grocery store and have a decent chance of seeing at least someone you know. Your doctor actually calls you back the same day you call with a concern. People don't size you up constantly based upon your job, social status or income. Volunteer work isn't something you do for your resume. You feel a part of a genuine community, not just one peon out of millions.
The case for living in the city
The countryside? It must be nice if you're retired … or dead. If you want to have a semblance of a social life and like to do wild things like, oh, going to the cinema on a Monday night, the city is for you.
1. Walking. It's a thing. Forget about having to spend a quarter of your paycheck on a car. Forget about feeding your second-hand beater gallons of earth-destroying gas on a weekly basis. And (unless you live in LA) forget about spending two hours a day stuck in traffic. Living in the city means that walking is often an option. And if it's not, commuting by public transport makes you feel like you're part of the world: you and others are on the same boat, so to speak, taking time to pause and read, or listen to music, before reaching work or going home. And, from London to Paris, Amsterdam to Vancouver, chances are you will be also be lucky enough to be able to bike everywhere – making you both fitter and happier.
2. You will never be the underdog. As Daria would tell you, it sucks to be the odd one out. If you're a goth, head to London's Camden Town, which will love to have you. You like playing in all-female netball teams? You'll find a club. Love mushroom-hunting? Start your own group. In Sydney, where I live, my local park alone is the home to joggers, skateboarders, tai chi lovers and tight-rope walkers. There's something for everyone. And kiss bigotry goodbye, too: if you're gay, you will easily find both a welcoming environment. And better dating prospects.
The countryside: not like Gilmore Girls
3. The entire world is (almost) on your doorstep. I don't know about you, but it would be a shame to die on the way to the hospital – or give birth on the side of a road. Which probably won't happen in the city. You can order anything from online stores and – miracle! – receive it the next day. Museums, galleries, libraries are easily accessible, a lot of them free. And food: enough said. Who likes to have the choice only between a grim pub serving dismal burgers or fish-and-chips and the local Subway branch at the back of a derelict mall? Not me.
4. It teaches you tolerance. The world is a diverse place – and in the city, you learn that fast. There's a reason New Yorkers are considered to be the most thick-skinned people on earth: nothing fazes them, because no one has time to be fazed and they've seen it all anyway. Someone is rude to on the subway? Move along. Someone cuts you while queuing in the supermarket? Get ahead and get even. But cities also teach patience and empathy because, after all, you're all in this together. Compromise is in the very fabric of city living. Neighbours complaining about your Saturday party? You have to reach an agreement. People who don't act, think, or speak like you do? Kids who annoy you by listening to rap music in the bus? They share your space, too. And you, theirs. It's an imperfect and fragile microcosm, which, no matter its many drawbacks, seems to work. Almost like magic.
5. The countryside is not like living in Gilmore Girls. If you think the countryside is like living on the idyllic Gilmore Girls' set, you're mistaken. Nor are you likely to live the Good Life, a la Helen and Scott Nearing, who fed themselves thanks to their homestead until they both died. True country-living means backbreaking work, including thankless chores performed before dawn. Here in Sydney, I pop to the corner shop to get eggs at midnight if I want. And if you're not a true back-to-the-lander living on a 120-acre farm in the middle of nowhere, you then have to live in a community where everything you do will be scrutinised. Privacy will be hard to maintain. No such thing will happen in the city, where people couldn't care less whether you like to walk around with your pet snake, like to wear mini-skirts in sub-freezing weather, or sing Bryan Adams' Everything I Do I Do It For You out loud while on your way to buy a baguette. Short of becoming a hermit, if you're a private individual or an introvert, city life is for you.
Sometime you may be think, the city life is better than village life. However there are so manyadvantages and disadvantages in city life and village life.Actually the city life is more comfortable.As well as there are more opportunities for people to progress in their lives. There are a lot offacilities for people in the city and they have more opportunities for making money. Children living inthe city can get a good education, because there are better school in the town than in the village.When a person falls ill there are good government and private hospital in the city to get treatment.There are large shop complexions, banks, offices, cinemas, hostels, clubs, hospitals etc. in andaround the city. People in the city have better transport facilities than the village. There is electricity,highway, communication, telecommunication, plumb facilities in the city. So people can lead acomfortable and enjoyable fife in the city.Although living in the city has many advantages there aresome disadvantages too. The cost of living is very high in the city. Most goods are very expensive.There is no fresh air and pure water. The environment is polluted with dust, smoke, garbage anddioxide gases from factories. Most of the people who live in the city are corrupted. So there are lotsof crimes in the city. Many thefts and murders often take place in the city. The city is always busyand noisy. There are a lot of vehicles and people in the road. The streets are dusty and unclean. Soit is hard to lead a healthy life in the city. As well as there are so many advantages in the village life.Mainly the people of the village live in unity and peace. The villagers earn money very hard andearn money enough for live. So they live less competition with each other. So they can reach agood position. They have more friends in the community since it is small. The village people alwaystry to protect their traditional habits and culture. The village has clean air and the environment isvery beautiful. The village has less noise and rush. So the pollution is less. The village has not lot ofvehicles. So roads are less dangerous for driving cycling. They can get fresh vegetables and freshfruits. The environment of the village is pleasant and silent and it has scenic beauty. The village hasnot only good points, but also it has bad points. The village has intelligent people. But many peopleare not educated. Villager’s children go to the village’s school. They are not go to the city’s school.They have difficult to keep up with new developments in their field or profession. Same day villagerslive same place. Village people have to face many difficulties for their lives , like traveling problems.They have to go to the city for supply their needs. Although the life in the city is more comfortablethan village, I like village life than city.
What is better - the city or the countryside?
There are a lot of different opinions about living in the country. Most citizens even can`t imagine how people live in the country without heating, hot water, television. On the other hand there are many people who live there all their life and can`t imagine living in the city. In my opinion the village is the best place for living.
To begin with pollution. There are no factories or plants in the country, a few cars and domestic waste. What is more, there are big forests around the villages, which clean the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving out oxygen. As a consequence the sky is blue in thevillage, the water is clean and limpid, fruit and vegetables are ecologically clean. It influences people`s health in a friendly way, to say nothing of quietness. When you are in the village you can hear only birds singing and leaves rustling and see only green and blue. There are no car`s horns or loud music from the clubs and people can enjoy the nature.
On the other hand there aren`t any entertainments in the country. In most villages people even don`t have a television. Young people can`t go anywhere for dancing, there is nothing to do in the evening. Moreover there is often no light and people have to go to bed very early. There is often the only school for several villages and children have to get up very early and go very far. And the roads in the country leave much to be desired.
But I think this isn`t very serious. Going to bed early is useful for health. If children go to bed early they can get up early and not to be late to school. Young people can organize the club and dance there. If there isn`t light they can use candles. And the most important fact, from my point of view, is that for lack of television and other entertainments people in the village have much more time for talking to each other than citizens do. I`m not sure about other people, but as for me I`d like to live in the country.
Life in the city is much easier than in the country – developed system, sewerage system, information, sports, shopping malls, etc. Modern men are too sophisticated for simple country pleasures. There is far more entertainment in the city than in the country.
Cities offer high concentration of good things in life: big stores, restaurants, theatres, cinema, art galleries. Life is more convenient in a city: services are always better here. In the city people are more open-minded. It is possible to go out, make friends and never be cut off from them by weather conditions.
Generally, people do not mind what you do in the city. In the city people have more chances to be employed, as the range of jobs is greater than in a village.
Besides in the city people have more chances to succeed. Moreover, life is never dull in the city, people always have something to do here. The objections to city living are not convincing enough.
People easily adapt to various inconveniences of city life. For example, noise and traffic are hardly noticeable to city-dwellers.
In the city especially in our country people live in apartments with central heating, telephone, gas, electricity, radio, TV, the Internet.
Most people love cities. Many people love the busy city life. It is enough for them to visit a country at week-ends.
Cities grew over the centuries because they served aims that could not have been served otherwise. Two thousand years ago most people lived in the countryside. It was not their choice. Today, almost half of humanity lives in city. It does so because it wants to. Man has always lived in groups.
It makes life safer and easier. Geography-rich soil, a safe harbour or navigable river, ample fresh water, easy defence, coal – was the start of many towns. In Europe towns grew over the strongholds of a local lord. Most of them developed as buying and selling centres; trade needed a market, and markets needed people.
Towns served their citizens very well if they in turn were served by them. During the Middle Ages when harvest failed, the nearby town offered hope of survival.
All successful towns satisfied economic needs. For a peasant town was the only place where he might make a fortune. In the new industrial order the city was the nerve centre, bringing to a focus all dynamic economic forces: vast accumulation of capital, business and financial institutions, spreading railroad yards, factories, armies of workers.
But there are some disadvantages of living in the city. Pollution is the greatest disadvantage of the city life today. Polluted air is hanging like a brown cloud over cities. Dirt and smoke are pouring from the buildings of cities and factories. Polluted urban air causes respiratory distress, particulary in children, and elderly people. Cars give a collection of pollutants. In bright, calm weather, sunlight turns the chemicals into a poison smog.
All big cities have problems with air pollution. Noise pollution is the problem of big cities too. Urban garbage – like food, paper and cans-on the ground or in the street is one more problem of cities. People don`t always put their garbage in the garbage can. Urban garbage is ugly. It makes the city look dirty and it spoils the view.
“The rush – hour” with crowded streets, packed trains, full buses that happens twice a day is one of disadvantages.
In addition, people live under constant threat; life is not quiet in the cities, it causes stresses and heart desease. Everyone who cares about his health tries to move out from the city. Most people in Europe and America try to live in non-industrial cities.
Most people like to stay in the countryside. They enjoy such simple things of primary importance as sunlight and fresh air.
Besides, living in the countryside is cheaper and safer than in a city. It provides people with more security. There is less crime and, of course, there is less traffic there. Life in the countryside is quiet, peaceful and healthy. Here people are friendly and it is much more pleasant in the countryside than in the city.
Unfortunately, life in the countryside is rather hard. Working and living conditions are difficult, social and cultural life in the countryside is not full of entertainment. And annually more and more young people flee from the countryside for a better life in the city.
It is a difficult to find a job in the countryside. The problem of employment in the countryside is very crucial today. It is especially acute for young people and professionals. As a rule there are few labour places for skilled agricultural workers and less for professionals.
Surely, people should always be optimists and hope for a better life. Where there is a will there is a way. Nowdays we can witness the revival of some villages. So far they are few but annually their number is increasing.
Living in the country is healthier.
OK, i admit it the country life has less opportunities but think about it its much healthier. Your kids will live in a clean air environment. And everyone knows everybody, your kids will have close friends and will love it. Don't do it for yourself do it for your children. :)
The country is where i live and breathe
I put my life into this family farm. Staying home sick from school to help out at harvest time. Get up at 7, be out in the field by 8, won't be back home until 2 30 in the morning. This is where all of my dreams are, no matter where i go this is where ill end up in the end.
Country life is better than city life
I've grown up on the border of a state forest my whole life and have a great education,min fact I thnk I would have a better education than I would have if I was in the city, there is less students for teachers to look after so they can help you out more and you experience things city people would never get a chance to. We breathe healthy, less polluted air and will usually be out side a lot more than city people. Country people will usually have more pets that city people so it teaches the country kids to have a responsibility.And I have a huge town to ride my horses in. I live in a loving and Caring community were every one knows every one. And I think you'll find that in the country there would be at least one nurse or doctor in each family. Medical care in the country is the same as in the city. People say that the country is boring but I want to ask you city people a question, have you ever patted a cow or been part of a community that really knows you and loves you??? And a better question, have you ever been to the country? It's not all open paddocks and grass with people living 5 Kim's away from each other. There are actual towns in the country! We are n isolated and I think you'll find that the country will have much better fire bregades and protection than the city. We need it because there is fire in the country. But that's not bad. Fire regenerate things. It's how life works. Country life is much better on everyone's lives humane and animals in the country animals are kept In paddock in the city animals are kept in factories! ( if you want to know about this type up factory farming it's horrible!) I am for the country all the was!
Country life ftw!
I think the country life is better and to everyone that thinks the city life is better because you have more opportunities to better scholarship and more high-paying jobs are just stupid. I´ve lived in the country my whole life and it haven´t stopped me or any of my friends (who also live in the country) to get a good scholarship and a high-paying job.
And to everyone still thinks city life is better are just lazy people that are lying to themselves.
Country life ftw!!
Country life is wayyy better
Do you prefer the silent peaceful tranquility of living in the country, or the loud crowded police siren in-the-distance city life? Personally, I prefer to live out in the country where your closest neighbor is across a mile wide pasture.
There are advantages to living in the city, such as being closer to your job or work, close to your supermarkets of choice, and in some cases living near your good friends. However, living in the city also has its disadvantages: poorer air quality, and less space outside.
Also, the noise of cars honking and police sirens zooming by your house at night would also be pretty annoying when you are trying to sleep. There is the chance that your neighbor would be the bad neighbor. For example: the family whose kids leave all their trinkets and toys in your yard while they are playing. Potentially costing you hundreds of dollars to fix your brand new, shiny, green, John Deere lawn mower. There are so many more things that are bad then good about living in the city.
Now, on to living out of town. The country is basically a giant playground if you think about it. Country living definitely has its advantages. Being about as loud as you fancy without complaints, burning your pasture or yard whenever you feel the need so your grass gets greener, whenever you want. Also you can burn your trash, which is much easier than placing it in cans and pushing them out to the road. And lastly but certainly not least, you can play with all your vehicles like your dirt bikes, ATVs, UTVs, and even trucks, whenever you want and anywhere on your property. Those are just some of the many advantages to living out of town. It does indeed have disadvantages, these downsides can be costly too, some of them are the cost of gas of back and forth trips to town, also the cost of gas for ATVs and such (should you posses them), it may cost you significantly more to purchase a property out in the country because more land equals more money. Also you will typically live on gravel roads, which are usually covered in pot holes. Those can be extremely annoying, and if you don’t go around them, they could cause serious problems for your vehicle.
There are a large collection of pros and cons when it comes to both living in the city and in the country. In the end, it is always your choice where you want to live. You could choose the loud, crowded police siren in-the-distance city. Or you could choose the other option. The peaceful, free, wide open country.
Country Life is Amazing!
I could name a 1000 reasons for why the city sucks. But the country has only has one downfall, which is speedy commutes to places in a city. I can go to a city to do anything city people can, but city people can't do anything in the country side without living there to experience and appreciate it all. They may know how to go camping or hunting. Camping is just a mobile version of living in the country which is amazing and hunting may be cool but who's land are you going to go on? Your friend's, a national park's, or your own? Hunting on your own land has a lot of benefits. Plus just "knowing your land" is an incredible feeling.
All the way
Life in the country gives you the freedom to do whatever you want to do. Have a garden (to help with that grocery bill) Raise your own meat, the way you want it, not stocked full of waste from another product. And raising kids, where you are at ease they wont get taken... So think about it. I believe the country is more owner friendly.
Country life is WAY better than city life! Just think of all the opportunities that city dwelling people are missing out on!
There are benefits of country life. And I can't see why the city going people cant see them! You're missing out on so much! Like clean air, peace, privacy, nature, and animal friends! As a city and country dwelling person (yes I also live in the city) I would take country living over city living anytime. You don't need a computer and a flat-screen TV to be happy. All you need is out here in the country (Yes I am writing this from the city, I cant really choose where I am at the moment) with the birds, sheep, horses and (my personal favourite) COWS!!! Yes, you can rest assured that country living is better for the mind and body than city living is!
Country life for life.
I have lived in a small town in Nebraska. I know everyone in town. I live on a farm and if needed I could support my family with just the land. I could grow food in the Garden and plant corn or wheat in the fields, I raise chickens, cows, and turkeys. You havn't lived until you ride a dirtbike or fourwheeler down a country road going 90 miles an hour.
Living in the country is healthier.
OK, i admit it the country life has less opportunities but think about it its much healthier. Your kids will live in a clean air environment. And everyone knows everybody, your kids will have close friends and will love it. Don't do it for yourself do it for your children. :)
Country life might be interesting for old people that prefer doing nothing at all.
Also, people say that there are no annoying neighbors in the country, but that's just because those people live in the middle of nowhere... Did you ever wonder why there are just a few people living in the country? It's because no one wants to go there!
In the city, you can do everything you want, at any time.
As a kid I know that you can always have a friend to help and stand by you, sure in the country you have a horse and dog(no offense to dogs who are awesome) but you don't have any one to laugh with, your parents don't count they have not usually been a kid in 30 so years.
Also city food is better then country food
Everything is so close to like the hospital because if I was in a country I would die half way to the doctors where I was supposed to be treated for cancer. Also fast food will live up to their name in city life. Come to think of it some country people don't know what a computer is.
The city is amazing
What is there to do in the country? Ride horses? Hard work? Cool. If I want do do any of that (not bloody likely) I'll travel to the country. Where as in the city I'm surrounded by amazing culture and art, always having things to do, having so much to see, I can shop where I want, eat where I want, get anywhere with public transport, there are better schools, more jobs, better medical care. As for the loud noise and busy streets; what's wrong with that? It's comforting, natural, I actually can't stand silence. Annoying neighbours? I've never met mine and I've lived here for 16 years 🙌🙌🙌💕💕
Kids won't get kidnapped in the country
This is false because if a child was kidnapped in the country it would be very dangerous because as you know the countryside is not really busy which means that if a child was kidnapped there would be no one to witness and also no one to help them.Which makes it really dangerous in the countryside.
City For Ever
Living in the country leaves you with limited access to medical, fire and police services. Decent education is far away and so is everything else. Even your nearest friends are far away. And the big thing... You are far away from the coast. Country and Beach are never near each other. I would never we able to live far away from the fun and enjoyment of the coast.
Country life is better
Motorbikes, horses, breath FRESH air, no noise, no pollution, city people don't get to experience the country life because there is no greenery or any sense of life left. The country is such a good place to grow up and you will be so much healthier for growing up in a less polluted place! Country is the best!!
Live Life, Live City
In the city there are so much more leisure activities. Also you have more access to emergency services.
Did you know that only 1 quarter of the people in the world live in the country, why? Because there is nothing to do except for hard work, and who likes hard work?
City life is awesome. It rocks...
Let's be real, everyone wants to have a comforting life and that is what city life is all about. Its exciting, comfortable, and easy. There are many opportunities available in cities like good medical treatment, transportation, information technologies, recreation, communication employment, entertainment, and you know all that thing that makes your life easy. Therefore I strongly believe that city life ROCKSSS......
