Some people think that it is best to live in a horizontal city while others think of a vertical city. Discuss both view and give your opinion.

People consider whether it is better to live in a horizontal city or a vertical city. While I accept that there are benefits to live in a horizontal city, I do believe that it is the best to live in a vertical city.

On the one hand, living in a city which consists of low-rise construction is beneficial in some ways. Firstly, citizens are required to pay less monthly service fee. They don’t have to pay money for several services such as guarding, parking and building management. Secondly, it is safer for inhabitants to live in a house than a building. In emergency case, they can be able to escape from danger easier especially in fire situation.

On the other hand, it seems to me that there are a number of reasons why living in a city with skyscrapers is much better than a horizontal city. It is much more convenient for citizens because there are a variety of services in the same building such as gym centers, beauty spa and supermarkets. This helps them save their times to do more work or enjoy their hobbies. Furthermore, a vertical city with high-rise building will give more space to build other infrastructures such as schools, hospitals, museums and transportation systems. For instance, since Ha Noi city constructed more skyscrapers in 2010, there has been more land to build schools. As a result, the city could deal with a significant increase in the number of young students over the last ten years.

In conclusion, while living in a horizontal city might give citizens some benefits, it seems to me that the advantages of living in a city which consists of high-rise construction makes it the better choice.
