Mount Ali has an elevation of some 3 000 metres above sea level. Here the temperature drops as one ascends higher and higher so that in a short couple of hours one can experience the weather changes in all the four seasons and admire the kind of scenery and plant life peculiar to the climate of, so to say, all the latitudes.
A light railway and a highway thread their way uphill through tree-clad slopes to the very summit of Mount Ali. The railway is 72 km long, beginning from the City of Jiayi and terminating at Zhaoping. On its way, the train has to cross 86 bridges, 66 tunnels and more than 30 gully crossings.
Travellers in the train crawling its way slowly up the mountain can have a real good time, feasting their eyes on the scenery and chatting to each other as the mood carries them. After the train leaves the North Gate Station of Jiayi, it runs on the plains at the foot of the mountain and one sees through the window lush green bamboo groves and fields of densely grown sugar cane.
As the train threads its way in the rugged hilly country crossing one clear stream after another, one would feel as though he had entered a world as ethereal as that in a Chinese landscape painting, passing now a woodland scene and now a secluded ravine with a quiet-flowing mountain brook. The peace of mind one enjoys while traveling in level country is suddenly shattered by the sight of precipitous cliffsides. While the train makes it way in this pictorial world of Mount Ali, travelers cannot help but marvel at the magic wonders of nature and the wisdom and courage of the railway builders.
16. Mount Ali is some 3 000 metres high, but it is easy to reach the peak because you can get there by______.
A. airplane B. helicopter
C. coach D. bicycle
17. Within a couple of hours visitors can see plant life that ______ four seasons.
A. experience B. represent

A. Chinese landscape paintings B. the peace of mind
C. a quiet-flowing brook D. a pictorial world of Mount Ali

Professional travelers are similar to business travelers in many ways, although this type of travel is more elastic than business travel. Professional travel is built around the meeting and convention markets. These markets have grown as transportation, especially by air, has become more available and affordable. As professional travel continues to grow, new and expanded meeting and convention facilities have been developed to satisfy this increasing demand. Along with this growth, new management challenges have arisen to serve this specialized market. Some of the key market segments for meeting participants or attendees are associations, businesses, exhibitions and trade shows, religious organizations, political parties, and governments.
Many futurists have also predicted a decline in business and professional travel with the introduction of teleconferencing. However, people continue to have a strong desire to meet each other face-to-face. Although teleconferencing serves to introduce people to each other electronically, they will eventually want to meet in person to interact and network. This need for personal contact and interaction has allowed the business travel market to grow even in the face of advancing technology.
In response to the needs of the business travel segment, tourism service suppliers have offered a wide array of services and benefits. Airlines instituted frequent-flier programs and service upgrades including business class and provided corporate pricing, discounts and rebates, travel lounges, and preferred check-ins. Amtrak developed club service with reserved seating, snack and beverage service, telephones, and conference rooms on some trains. Car rental companies, following the lead of airlines, established frequent-renter programs, which provided corporate pricing, discounts, rebates, upgrades, and special check-in procedures. Hotels and other lodging properties have provided similar benefits to business travelers including corporate pricing, discounts, and rebates; special floors and sections including business centers, frequent stay programs, and upgrades.
21. A lot of professional travelers are planned to attend some kind of______.
A. associations B. political parties
C. conferences D. specialized markets
22. As a result of modern communication facilities some people believe that business and professional travel may ______.
A. develop B. reduce
C. disappear D. grow
23. In order to attract professional travelers the airlines offer them many kinds of______.
A. special floors B. discounts
C. business centers D. beneficial treatments
24. Electronic technique helps achieve the purpose of professional activities, but people have a strong desire to meet each other ______.
A. in business B. in public
C. in office D. in person
25. From the article we can come to the conclusion that professional travel will not______.

71.In general, the world's developed nations, owing to the advanced development of their economies and scientific technology, have experienced high levels of tourism demand and supply. Tourist facilities and services have been expanded and developed around the world to meet the rising demand of travelers from developed countries. But, the unbalanced levels of economic growth among different countries have led to disparities in tourism development. In developing countries, the low level of economic livelihood restricts the development of a domestic tourism industry. This is true even in those countries with a strong international tourism sector. Most of the people in the developing world are still struggling to make ends meet. Thus, leisure travel for them remains a distant dream.
72. Generally there are two types of tour guides, one in charge of local sightseeing and the other accompanying a group throughout its travels and making all the arrangements for the group. In China, they are usually known as local guide and national guide. The sightseeing guide must be familiar with the points of interest that he is showing to the visitors. He usually gives prepared talk but he must also be prepared to answer a lot of questions. And of course he has to deal with any problems that occur during the tour. These may include bad weather, sudden illness, an accident and so on. It would be impossible to name everything that might happen. A sightseeing guide needs two qualities—an outgoing personality and language skill.
