G: No, not all of them. But we will see most of them. T2: Here’s the lake! G: The lake has a water surface of 5.6 square kilometers. T1: No wonder it looks so huge. G: We are now walking on what is in fact an island. Here we have one of the 10 scenic spots of West Lake; Autumn Moon over the Calm Lake. T2: Why is it called “Autumn Moon over the Calm Lake”? G: It’s so named because in the pavilion over there the great poet Bai Juyi of the Tang Dynasty took a rest after drinking a little too much, and watched the moon over the lake. T2: Very romantic. G: Now let’s board the boat and have a tour on the lake. T2: Sure. (They get on the boat) T3: Mr. Wang, what’s that building over there? It looks like a huge pavilion. G: You are right. That’s the Heart of Lake Pavilion, situated on an islet. It was built in 1552 and is the largest pavilion on West Lake, oh, here we are at the little Yingzhou Island. Let’s get off the boat. Please watch you step. T3: Oh, another world unveils itself to us. T4: This is a paradise on earth. (After some time) G: Let’s get moving.

Listening Practice C: It’s such an exciting place. I’ve never seen water so clear and blue. A: You’re right. President Clinton was deeply impressed by the beautiful views here. B: The combinations of hills and waters are really fascinating. A: Please come over here and take a look. The sun gives a lustrous coating to both the nearby and distant peaks and to the clouds floating high and low. What a view of hills upon hills the sunshine has revealed. C: Great. Look, the sunshine has dyed the river. It looks like a green satin belt winding amidst the green hills. B: I can see through the river. I can see the bottom, the pebbles, fish, and weeds. C: It’s like seeing the aquarium through crystal clear glasses. A: You know, we see the hills more clearly in their reflection on the water than the hills on the riverbank. As the water flows, the hills seem to move as well. The landscape in Guilin is characterized by its “green hills, clear waters, pretty rocks, and grotesque caves”. Each hill in Guilin has caves. These exquisite scenes and objects are a feast for the eyes. B: I’ve heard another scenic spot “Yangshuo”. Is it worth seeing? A: Yes. If you miss it, you will feel sorry. As the saying goes, “The landscape in Guilin is the best in China, and the landscape in Yangshuo is the best in Guilin.” Compared with those in Guilin, the hills in Yangshuo are closer to each other, and are more peaceful and secluded. C: You have given us such a good guide that we’d like to fly there soon.
