Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Hi George,

I’m writing this letter to thank you for organizing such an amazing trip. I have always loved to hike and to explore the mountains in different countries. It was like a dream come true for me when you told me about the hiking trip in the northern region of Pakistan. I really enjoyed this whole trip especially the camping in the Baltor glacier.

I got quite busy at work after coming back from the trip due to the pending workload while I was away. Last two weeks were tough as we were busy finalizing the year-end financial reporting; therefore, I was working until mid-night every day. Hopefully, next week would be less busy and relax.

You told me during our trip that you are coming to my town next month for your work. I would like to invite you to my place and show you around my city which is famous in this region for its flower and fruit market.

Keep me updated with your plans.

Best wishes,
