Many people go abroad to travel to see what other countries look like. However, the places all around the world are looking more and more similar. What do you think is the cause of this similarity? Do you think the advantages of this effect outweigh the shortages of it?

[shc_shortcode class=”shc_mybox”]It is irrefutable that because of globalization, similarities between countries are more
obvious these days than in the past. In this essay I shall discuss the causes of this similarity
and also discuss whether this trend has more advantages or disadvantages.

The major reason is that in most countries, land is scarce and consequently it is very
valuable. This has led to the construction of tall buildings which occupy only a small area of
land while providing lots of floor space where people can live or work. Buildings of this type
are made of concrete and steel and can be built comparatively quickly using prefabricated
materials. They do not use local materials, such as stone, timber or brick, which used to give
cities their individual character. In consequence, many cities now look very much the same
and you might not know whether you were in Australia, China or Germany when you are on
the street. This has led to a loss of architectural diversity but it is helpful to save the
environment because less land and less wood is used.

Another cause of similarity is that the international outlets like Reebok, Nike and Levi’s can
be seen everywhere. Food outlets like MacDonald and Starbuck’s etc can be seen in almost
all corners of the world. People wearing the same type of clothes can be seen everywhere.
Although it is regrettable that countries look similar, I tend to feel that this is unavoidable.

On the whole, the advantages are much more than the disadvantages and when people go
to other countries for tourism, they still enjoy a lot because communication is much better
nowadays; people understand other cultures much better and have become more open in
their outlook of life. Moreover, every place has a few buildings which give that place its own
uniqueness.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that the advantages of countries looking similar are
much more than the disadvantages and the huge rush at the international airports is proof
enough that people are not deterred by this similarity among countries. Many people go abroad to travel to see what other countries look like
