中国美景_最新英语新闻

Almost all of us are familiar with China’s great man-made attractions: The Forbidden City in Beijing. The Terracotta Warriors of Xi’an. Shanghai’s skyscraper forest in Pudong.

我们大多数人都对中国了不起的人工景观比较熟悉。比如:北京紫禁城、西安兵马俑、上海浦东林立的摩天大楼。

For a country of its massive size and varied geography, however, it’s surprising how relatively few people outside China appreciate the extent of the country’s other attractions, many of them natural wonders to rival any in the world.

令人惊讶的是,只有相对较少的一部分外国人懂得欣赏中国其他地方的景致。对于这个幅员辽阔、地形多样的国家来说,很多自然景观都可匹敌世界上任何地方。
