本文轉載自微信公眾號「中國日報雙語新聞」(ID:Chinadaily_Mobile),不代表了望智庫觀點。

對了,在這52個勝地中,中國也有一處上榜,那就是……

中國 甘肅

Gansu, China

推薦理由

Ancient Silk Road attractions, now within reach.

古代絲綢之路名勝,如今觸手可及。

甘肅古屬雍州,省會蘭州。著名的敦煌莫高窟、鳴沙山、月牙泉、甘南、嘉峪關、張掖等,無不讓人嘆為觀止。

東接陜西,南控巴蜀青海,西倚新疆,北扼內蒙古、寧夏,這裡孕育著深厚的絲綢之路文化,是古絲綢之路的鎖匙之地和黃金路段。

現在高鐵通了,這些神秘的景點變更「親民」啦!

With the opening of the western segments of China’s national high-speed rail line in recent years, a host of ancient Silk Road attractions in Gansu province are suddenly much more accessible.

近年來,隨著中國國家高速鐵路西段的開通,甘肅省許多古老的絲綢之路景點一時間變得交通便利。

張掖丹霞國家地質公園的彩虹山是大漠上一道亮麗的風景線:

The surreal rainbow-striped mountains in the Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park are now just a three-hour train ride from Gansu’s capital, Lanzhou, half the time as before.

張掖丹霞國家地質公園裡夢幻的彩虹山,現在距離甘肅省會蘭州市只有3個小時的車程,比以前縮短了一半。

長城的最西端嘉峪關在大漠上佇立了千年,在今天仍然綻放光彩:

Also more accessible are the westernmost part of the Great Wall built in the Ming dynasty and the spectacular 14th-century Jiayuguan fort, looking splendid again after a four-year, $290 million restoration.

同樣交通更加方便的還有始建於明代長城的最西端、14世紀的雄偉建築嘉峪關要塞,經過四年的修繕,耗資2.9億美元,這座堡壘已然重現昔日輝煌。

義大利 巴斯利卡塔

Basilicata, Italy

推薦理由

Caves, beaches and more in Italy’s secret southern region.

神秘的義大利南部有洞穴、海灘等美景,卻鮮為人知。

This is a chance to visit Italy’s southern region before the world catches on. Between the heel that is Puglia and the toe that is Calabria, you will find Basilicata, the arch of Italy’s foot.

趁世人還未發現這片美麗的土地,不妨趕緊去義大利南部一探究竟。義大利在地圖上好似一只靴子,普利亞區是它的鞋跟,卡拉布裡亞區則是鞋尖,而中間的足弓地帶就是巴斯利卡塔區。

Despite a storied and ancient past, the region has been overlooked in modern times. Easily Italy’s best-kept secret, Basilicata is revered for beautiful beaches, ancient towns and a dearth of organized crime.

盡管這片地區傳說眾多,歷史悠久,如今卻依然鮮為人知。可以說,巴利斯卡塔地區是義大利最大的秘密。這兒有風景優美的沙灘,還有古老的小鎮,人們也不用擔心會遭到黑幫侵擾。

In 2019, the town of Matera, a Unesco site, will host the European Capital of Culture. It is also known for its ancient caves — once used for livestock, later as primitive homes, and today, as private residences and hipster, beautifully restored, Flintstone-esque hotels. But for now at least, the secret is still safe.

聯合國教科文組織已將馬泰拉市列入世界遺產名錄,到了2019年,該市還成為「歐洲文化之都」。而馬泰拉市則以古老的洞穴而聞名。這些洞穴曾經用來蓄養牲畜,一度也曾是原始的人類居所。如今,它們有的變成了私人住所,有的則改建成了漂亮新潮的旅館,好似讓人們回到了石器時代。慶幸的是,至少在目前,這片美麗的土地仍未被成群的觀光客涉足,還是一個秘密仙境。

瑞士 四森林州湖

Vierwaldstättersee, Switzerland

推薦理由

Sustainable Switzerland.

永遠生態環保的瑞士。

The medieval city Lucerne is choked with tour buses, but new developments around the spacious lake it sits on (called Lake Lucerne by tourists but known as Vierwaldstättersee to locals) promise to thin crowds and offer accessible doses of authentic Swiss Alps.

中世紀城市盧塞恩擠滿了觀光巴士,但它所處的廣闊湖泊(遊人把它喚作盧塞恩湖,當地人稱之為「四森林州湖」)周圍正在開發新的旅遊景點,屆時將大大分散如織的遊人,讓你領略純正的瑞士阿爾卑斯風光。

To help mobilize the masses, overnighters in winter will automatically receive the William Tell Pass, good for use on the region’s buses, boats, trains and cable cars, including the new Stoosbahnen, Switzerland’s steepest funicular railway that accesses family-friendly Stoos, a scenic alpine resort and home to 21 miles of piste, a new lady bug-themed hiking trail, cheese markets, and yodeling and alphorn concerts.

為了方便遊客出行,每年冬季在當地過夜的旅行者可以自動申領William Tell Pass交通卡。憑該卡可以乘坐市內公交、船舶、火車、纜車等交通工具,包括新建的Stoosbahnen纜索鐵道,這是瑞士境內最陡峭的一段纜索。還有適合全家出行的高山度假勝地施圖斯,這兒擁有整整33公里的滑雪道,以及一條以瓢蟲為主題的遠足路線和一家芝士市場,還會舉辦約德爾歌曲與山笛音樂會。

到了2025年,克萊德河畔將建成250個建築項目,包括多家酒店,購物中心和居民住宅樓。

But whisky’s on the lips of everyone in town: two of the 20 or so new distilleries opening in Scotland are in Glasgow, including the $12.3 million Clydeside Distillery, the city’s first in 100 years, in a restored pump house near Zaha Hadid’s Riverside Museum.

不過威士忌酒廠才是人們的專注焦點。蘇格蘭即將興建20多家釀酒廠,有兩家就坐落在格拉斯哥。其中,克萊賽德釀酒廠(Clydeside Distillery)位於Zaha Hadid設計的河畔博物館(River Museum)附近。它由泵房改造而成,耗資高達1230萬美元,打破了該市百年來的記錄。

Glasgow’s exciting, wallet-friendly restaurants, like 2017 newcomer Bilson 11, reinterpret Caledonian cuisine, while international flavors find increasingly authentic expression at spots like Ramen Dayo, which serves up admirable ajitama (soy sauce eggs) and tonkotsu ramen stock.

格拉斯哥的餐廳大多價廉物美,例如2017年新開的Bilson11餐廳就重新詮釋了蘇格蘭美食。同樣,來自全球的美食也愈發純正。在Ramen Dayo拉面館,遊客可以品嘗到美味的日本「味王」(ajitama,一種醬蛋)和豚骨拉面。

澳大利亞 最北端

Top End, Australia

推薦理由

Venture North旅遊公司提供前往卡卡杜國家公園和阿納姆地土著家園的獨家體驗之旅,為想要體驗當地文化和原住民巖石藝術的遊客開辟了第二營地:原住民所有的Pudakul Tours旅遊公司則在擠滿鱷魚的水潭邊開設了備有六個房間的露營地。

The region’s small cities — Darwin, Palmerston, Katherine — are seeing new markets and indigenous centers, giving visitors hubs to appreciate the vast region’s diverse cultures.

該地區的幾個小城市(達爾文、帕默斯頓、凱瑟琳等)都建造了新市場和土著中心,讓遊客可以集中欣賞這片廣袤地區的多元文化。

西班牙 塞維利亞

Seville, Spain
