I believe the first answer is the one you are looking for.

 

This is my first time visiting this beautiful city. (Present Tense)

 

That was the first time I visited this beautiful city. (Past Tense)

If you visited the city only one time previously...and you are not there now, only talking about the time you first visited the city."That was the first time I visited the beautiful city of ..."or "That was the first time I visited that beautiful city."

Since we are a community of nitpickers ...
 

Clil and Tony focused on yoour sample sentence. I'll focus on your question -- "um not good in eng plz help me to know the wrghit one'

 

Your question is in what I am now calling "Text Messege Vernacular". In formal English (or een informal writing), it should be:

 

"I'm not good with English. Please help me pick the right one."

 

Hope this helps with your English education.

Actually, if you use "It's the first time", a present tense would be more correct:

 

It's the first time I'm visiting this city.

This is the first time I'm visiting this city.

 

You could use with a past tense:

 

It/That was the first time I visited the city.

IT/That was the first time I'd visited the city. (if there is another past time reference)

 

You could also use the present perfect:

 

I've never been to this city before.
