  for most people, almost any place can become a tourist destination as long as it is different from the place where the traveler usually lives. london may not be a tourist attraction to a londoner, but for a new yorker it may have many charms. many big cities offer a unique atmosphere and history. the great wall and the palace museum of beijing, and the cable cars of san francisco are part of the unusual atmosphere of those cities.
  smaller and yet well-known towns and rural areas throughout the world may also have attractions of this kind that tourists visit. an excellent example is the small village town of stratford, shakespeare’s birthplace. of course, natural scenery has always been an attraction for tourists. millions of people have visited niagara falls, for example. its reputation as a place for a honeymoon resort is world-famous.

  世界各地著名的小城镇和乡村地区也有这类游客趋之若骛的景点,如莎士比亚的诞生地斯特福特小村镇便是典范。当然,自然风光始终吸引着游客,例如尼亚加拉大瀑布的观光客达到数百万之众,大瀑布的“蜜月巢”之美誉举世闻名。
