Some people think that it is best to live in a horizontal city while other think of  a vertical city.

Discuss both views and give your opinion.

In the modern world, many people think that living in a horizontal city is much better convenient while the opponents of such idea argue that it had better to live in vertical buildings. While I accept that there are benefits to people living in low-rise building, I would argue that high-rise construction could bring more advantages in various aspects of life.

On the one hand, the option to dwell in a horizontal city can be beneficial for residents in some reasons. Firstly, people who live in high building often suffer from many high-priced services such as security fee or parking fee. Therefore, if residents settle in their private house, they can save such a great deal of money to pursuit other passions like getting on an abroad travel or charitable donation. Furthermore, living in low-rise building can be safer to some extent. For example, in case of emergency like fire, it will not take so much time for people to escape from the dangerous areas.

On the other hand, it seems to me that residents should choose to live in a vertical city because of a variety of undeniable reasons. First, in the state-of-the-art skyscrapers, they are designed and constructed as complex buildings and all facilities are arranged into an area. This means that residents may shop or entertain in the same area they live without having to travel far from home. Moreover, because high building can accommodate a big amount of residents; as a result,  there will be more land free for public use. The government can use this land to build hospitals, schools or low-priced dormitories for poor students.

In conclusion, while living in a horizontal city does have some benefits, it seems to me that settling in a vertical city will be a better choice.
