another 2 cents

If you're just talking about the disimilarities rather than the divide between the rich and the poor,

For example:
There're many highrisers and fast transportations in urban area, while rural areas the enviroment is better.
Then if someone asks you which do you like better and "can you compare them? "
in this case you may say "It's like apples and oranges"

我觉得用在这里不合适

oranges and apples 指的是比较没有意义,各有各的好,不是强调差距大。

楼上,我看hly是教我^_^说城市和乡村各有千秋。他没有说城乡差距。

"谁都知道,我国的城乡差别是很大的,可以说有着天壤之别。"
这句话里,谁都知道指的是生活水平方面的差别(不知道的我认为是不关心社会了). 表示这种落差的巨大用 a gaping gap 比较合适一点.
