THE CRITIQUE

As the saying goes “The world is a book, but people do not travel read only one page.” And there is no doubt that Tourism is the best media to obtain sexual pleasure and romance. 52 Places to Go in 2016 from the New York Times simply but fairly introduced 52 brilliant places where people need to go. Looking through by the pictures or the short video and the short description, reader not merely could know the location of the places, have straightforward recognize in these places, but can make them in their own traveling lists as well.

I really like this piece of multimedia, following many reasons behind. Above all, I like traveling crazily, for which I confirmedly hold a belief that Travel makes a wise man more wisdom, a fool more. Anything about amazing travel can impress me. Secondly, as the rapid development of the technology and the Internet, people will easily drown in the ocean of the information. So, people cannot choose the right place they really want to go for a vocation, and this multimedia provides people with a good recommendation, undoubtedly. Last but not the least, 52 Places to Go in 2016 is the kind of great multimedia. Including the short video or the unforgettable shoot as well as the description, it really can let people make the acquaintance with this 52 places, and find their right places. The maps also reveal the location of the places and the “what to do in xx” give people more recommendations, which offer reader much more convenience. A good multimedia need these two qualities, fascinating and readable. 52 Places to Go in 2016 really make people want to read and read easily.

However, “every coin has two sides”. 52 Places to Go in 2016 also has its drawbacks. Initially, it was too long to read through. Even though the traveling enthusiast like me cannot stand such a long piece. I am in a dilemma when I read to No.30 places. I really wanted to know the others but it was quietly tired. Although I got through the whole thing at last, I really believed that most reader cannot get through it. The other flow was that 52 Places to Go in 2016 provided too less information and amazing shoot or video in every place. The only one or two great images are really not enough.

“One flaw cannot obscure the splendor of the jade.” I still love it too much. And if it can have a more exquisite selection, offer a top 10 places to go and post more amazing pictures or unforgettable video, it must win more and more followers, making a more widely influence.
