Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Vinoth,

I hope you’re doing well and enjoying your new job. I’m writing to tell you about my upcoming visit to Georgia and I would like to ask your advice on a couple of things. 

My trip is for a client meeting in Georgia and I’ll be accompanied by two of my colleagues. The schedule seems to be hectic; however, I’ll get a bit of free time to see around. I know how much you loved your years at university in the city and I have been looking forward to visiting the city for quite a long time.

I’ll be staying in hotel Tbilisi tower, which is located in the centre of the city. The accommodation is provided by the organizers. Can you please recommend some places to visit in the city during evenings? I remember you telling me about the mesmerizing local music and I would really like to listen to that. Moreover, if you could point me to some good restaurants to eat, that would be great too.

Keep in touch,
