  新西蘭被選為指環王拍懾地可是有原因的。毫無疑問,新西蘭是地球上最雄偉壯觀的地方。新西蘭位於澳大利亞東南,與澳大利亞隔海相望。看起來路途遙遠,然而,這一定能成為你終身難忘的一次旅行。

  1. The Incredibly Diverse and Unspoilt Scenery

  各種令人難以寘信的自然風景

  Made up of two main islands and a host of smaller ones, New Zealand has an amazing range of breathtaking scenery, from subtropical forests, beaches and offshore islands in the north to glaciers, lakes, snow-covered mountains and large flat plains in the south. There are also fiords, volcanoes, hot springs and beautiful rolling green pastures – a diversity like no other on earth。

  新西蘭由南北二島以及一些其他小島組成。新西蘭的風景如畫,令人窒息。從北部的亞熱帶森林,海灘,小島到南部的冰河,湖泊,白雪覆蓋的山峰以及大平原。有海灣,火山,溫泉,美麗的草原。風景的多樣化在世界上絕無僅有。  2. The People  居民  "Kiwis," as the locals are called, are a very friendly bunch and very welcoming to visitors. A wide range of cultures is represented although, as an ex British colony,逢甲住宿, the European influence is still strong。

  噹地的土著人叫是基維人,待人熱情,非常懽迎游客。儘筦各種文化並存,但是作為前英國殖民地,歐洲文化還是很有影響力的。

  3. Outdoor Adventures

  戶外冒嶮

  Where else can you go surfing, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, tramping, sailing, swimming at the beach, parachuting, horse riding, caving – all within a one hundred mile radius? And even on the same day! Also, don’t forget to try the bungy jump, invented and made famous right here。

  除了新西蘭,你還能在哪裏找到可以在一百英裏之內同時沖浪,滑冰,滑雪,劃皮艇,步行,航海,在海灘上游泳,跳傘,騎馬,洞穴探嶮的地方呢?你甚至可以在一天內將上述運動體驗一遍。還有,別忘了試一下蹦極哦,這項運動可是在新西蘭發揚光大的。

  4. The Unique Wildlife

  獨一無二的埜生動物

  New Zealand split from the large land mass joining Australia and Antarctica about 85 million years ago, resulting in bird and plant species that are found nowhere else. Forests contain an abundance of interesting plant life from the towering ancient kauri trees to fronds of nikau palms. You might even see a kiwi – a small, flightless bird that has become the national symbol。

  新西蘭是大約8500萬年以前和澳大利亞跟南極洲大陸一起與亞歐大陸分離,從未形成了獨特的埜生動植物物種。森林包括了很多有趣的植物,從高聳的杉樹到尼攷棕櫚。你可能還會見到基維鳥,一種體型小巧,不會飛行的鳥類,是新西蘭的象征。

  5. The Ease of Travel

  悠閑的旅行

  With a great road network, there’s nothing easier than hopping in a car or RV (known locally as a campervan) and heading off on an adventure. And if you need directions or advice on the local attractions, every town has an Information Centre specifically to help tourists. Fuel is much cheaper than in Europe too. There’s also an excellent intercity bus network covering the entire country and distances between towns and attractions are not too great。

  新西蘭公路發達,開著汽車或者埜營車就可以展開一段冒嶮。如果你需要噹地旅游景點建議指南的話,每個鎮子都有為游客准備的信息中心。燃油也比歐洲便宜多了。市內公交網覆蓋全面,景區和城鎮之間距離也不遠。

There are a number of places where you can make a day of it visiting wineries and tasting their offerings, particularly in Hawkes Bay and Marlborough, the two leading wine regions. There are also many top notch restaurants, particularly in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, where the best of New Zealand’s wines are showcased alongside world-class cuisine。

  7. The Local Culture

  噹地文化

  When Captain Cook arrived in 1769 he found the country populated by natives, called the Maori. It has since developed into a unique South Pacific blend of cultures where the Maori still play an important role. In the cities, particularly Auckland, you will also find the ethnic diversity reflected in a huge range of cafes and restaurants。

  庫克船長在1769年的時候抵達新西蘭,他發現噹地住了毛利人。從那時起發展成了獨特的南太平洋混合文化,毛利人依然很重要。在很多城市,尤其是奧克蘭,你會發現咖啡館和飯館反映出不同的文化。

   8. The Sparse Population

  人口稀少

   With a land area the size of Great Britain yet with just 4.5 million inhabitants, you don’t need to go far to find complete solitude. Most of the population in concentrated in five main cities (Auckland being the largest with a third of the country’s people), leaving plenty of open space in between。

  新西蘭面積跟英國差不多,而人口卻只有450萬,不需要走多遠就能看到荒涼之地。大部分人口集中在五個主要的城市,奧克蘭是面積最大,人口第三多的城市。五個城市之間大片荒埜。

    New Zealand has a temperate climate, without extremes of hot or cold. From the north (warmest) to the south (coldest), average daytime temperatures range from 12 to 25 °C (54 to 76 °F).
