英國調查最值一遊 台灣太魯閣世界第五


艾菲爾鐵塔是觀光客到法國巴黎的必遊景點,但是根據英國最新調查,在英國人眼中,艾菲爾鐵塔是全世界「最令人失望的景點」。羅浮宮裡的蒙娜麗莎像也被形容小得令人失望排名第二。其它被列入旅遊「黑名單」的景點依序:紐約時代廣場、西班牙巴塞隆納的LasRamblas 大道,紐約自由女神像、羅馬西班牙階梯、華府白宮、埃及金字塔、德國柏林的布蘭登堡門及義大利比薩斜塔。 「維珍旅行保險」針對一千兩百六十七位英國成人旅客做的調查顯示,除了「人潮擁擠、票價昂貴」的艾菲爾鐵塔,巴黎羅浮宮、紐約時報廣場、自由女神像與美國權力中心白宮,都令英國遊客感到失望。埃及金字塔則因為氣溫過高、小販太多讓英國人遊興大減。

 

不過,英國人心中的全世界十大「必遊景點」中,台灣花蓮的太魯閣名列第五。這份調查報告表示,太魯閣國家公園很適合體力好的旅客一遊,但在介紹太魯閣時,說這裡是李安拍攝臥虎藏龍的地點,卻是弄錯了。 調查報告裡還提到,《哈利波特》作者羅琳一定也會愛上這裡。高居十大必遊景點第一名的是約旦佩特拉城,其次是義大利的威尼斯運河和肯亞的馬賽瑪拉國家動物保護區、澳洲雪梨大橋。

 

在英國國內旅遊方面,英國人對英格蘭西南部史前時代巨石柱群的評價很差,有人說,石柱群不過是「一塊泥濘土地上的孤單石堆」。 其它不受歡迎的景點還包括:位在英格蘭北方的紐卡爾斯市的北方天使、英格蘭西北部黑池市的黑池塔、英國的最南端的地尾、英格蘭南部的布來頓港、多佛的白崖地區。 位在倫敦的幾個重要地標意外上榜,包括黛安娜王妃紀念噴泉、倫敦眼、白金漢宮及大笨鐘,都讓旅客感到失望。

Overseas

1. The Treasury at Petra, Jordan

2. The Grand Canal, Venice

3. The Masai Mara, Kenya

4. Sydney Harbour Bridge

5. Taroko Gorge, Taiwan

Mornings start early at Taroko Gorge if you are to walk any of the trails before it becomes too hot and humid. The 2km-long Paiyang trail includes clambering through tunnels and a cave, which goes under and behind a waterfall, where it ains?inside. Bats squeal and reel above as you teeter along the narrow ledge trying not to fall into the deep water. Taroko Gorge was the backdrop for the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and JK Rowling would love it here.
