Here is a vocabulary list that I made a while ago for one of my students who was struggling to come up with interesting phrases related to travel that would help her reach band 8 for IELTS speaking. It was inspired by a Lonely Planet article and many of the phrases were taken directly from there. Lonely Planet writers are passionate about travel and need to come up with plenty of synonyms to keep their articles interesting. I’ve included a couple of links to recommended articles below the list.
I have another IELTS vocabulary list for travel and some answers in context, please let me know if you would be interested and I’ll upload it.
