Is national identity important?
Absolutely. And the main reason is that it can provide local people with a sense of belonging and a sense of origin. Also, it sets countries apart from each other and make the world diverse and amazingly beautiful. People travel thousands of miles away from home just to experience another culture and climate, which makes life more varied and fascinating. So the bottom line is that cultural identities and national identities in general should be treasured but extreme nationalism or chauvinism should be avoided as it can threaten the world peace.
How can people learn about other countries?
Well, in this digital age, there are various ways to obtain insightful knowledge about another country, including travel guidebooks, TV programmes, YouTube channels and the Internet. People can now gain valuable insights into another nation without actually setting foot on it. Just type a keyword into Google search box and a wealth of information can be accessed for free. And watching images and video clips online can be exhilarating too.
Is it necessary to travel to another country to learn about their culture?
Well, that’s a tough question. As I mentioned, people can easily discover an exotic culture from others’ experiences, possibly via books or handy digital devices. However, nothing can be compared to seeing it with their own eyes and experiencing it themselves. For example, travellers can only talk to local people, practice their traditions and truly get immersed into their culture if they actually take a trip to that country. What I’m trying to say is that TV and virtual experiences can be equally fascinating but they can’t really replace actual journeys. So, travelling abroad is rewarding despite being unnecessary for learning purpose.
