English to Chinese: Whitewater Rafting, Amazon Basin （from 1000 ULTIMATE ADVENTURES) General field: Other Detailed field: Tourism & Travel
Source text - English No jungle list is complete without the daddy of them all – the Amazon rainforest. And the best way to truly appreciate this vast lushness is to take a boat through its inner core, starting with a white-water raft on the rapids of the upper river and moving onto more mellow motorised dug-out canoes as you get deeper downstream. You can also visit a rehabilitation centre for rainforest animals for close-up views of animals you’ll have heard of, such as monkeys and snakes, and ones you won’t, such as tapirs and ocelots.
Translation - Chinese 如果漏掉了最大的亚马逊雨林，任何丛林名单都是不完整的。而要真正欣赏这个郁郁葱葱的巨大森林，最好的办法是乘坐一叶小舟，从它腹地中央穿过，就从河流上游那些激流中的一次漂流开始吧，然后转移到更温和的机动独木舟上，顺流而下，逐渐深入雨林。你还可以在一个康复中心近距离观看那些你仅仅耳闻过的雨林动物，如猴子和蛇，以及那些你闻所未闻的动物，如貘和豹猫。
