It is 19:00 Beijing time. I am now in a net bar outside the so called Chinese dead sea. Well, to be honest, this place does not impress me so much. Because it reminds of the world-class water resorts like Disneyland but the big gap and d...

  • Because it reminds of the world-class water resorts like Disneyland but the big gap and difference is so evident.
  • Because it reminds me of the world-class water resorts like Disneyland but the big gap in the difference of quality is so evident.
  • you can also say "...it is reminiscent of world-class water resorts..." 还有, 你可能一经知道 but starting sentences with "Because" is not good writing. In a casual entry it's fine and native speakers do it all the time but this should not be done in reports/papers or essays so you can just combine with the previous sentence "Well to be honest, this place does not impress me much because it reminds me of the world-class water resorts like Disneyland but the big gap in the difference of quality is so evident. some people consider "This is because..." fine and better than "Because..." but some people would still say this is wrong because "this" should refer to something within the same sentence. For example: "I am unimpressed with this resort and this is because it is incomparable to other resorts like Disneyland."

  • Human activities including over-grazing, forestation and over-tilling contribute to land not being able to plough on and problems such as desertization and salinization along the upper Yellow river demand great human labor and money input to better this devastating situation.
  • Human activities including over-grazing, deforestation, and over-tilling contribute to the degradation of land quality. Other problems such as desertification and salinization along the upper Yellow river demand great human labor and money to better remedy this devastating situation.
  • deforestation means to clear off trees which is what I think you meant. unless you mean planting trees not appropriate for the enviroment? also, oxford comma! so again, not technically wrong but it is a run-on sentence so stylistically it is better to seperate into shorter sentences for clarity. spelling correction in grey. I prefer remedy over improve as it denotes fixing, which is more appropriate for the context of all these problems being presented. again, either works
