The majestic beaches of Turkey make it a top spot for summer travelers, yet few realize it is also lovely in winter. Its natural sights stand out during this time of year, and because winter is the low season, cheap prices make it easier to tour around the country.

土耳其壯麗的海灘使它成為夏季旅客的首選,但鮮少有人了解它在冬天也非常漂亮。其自然景色在每年這個時候格外醒目,而且因為冬天是淡季,價格便宜使得到這個國家旅遊變得更容易。

 

One of Turkey’s biggest attractions is the region of Cappadocia, whose unusual terrain seems as if it’s from another planet. Perhaps its strangest features are rock formations known as fairy chimneys. Looking like giant mushrooms rising from the ground, these structures were formed millions of years ago from volcano ash that gradually wore away with time.

土耳其最重要的其中一個旅遊勝地是卡帕多奇亞地區,那裡與眾不同的地貌似乎是來自另一個星球。也許最奇特的特色是被稱作精靈煙囪的岩石構造。這些構造看起來像是從地面升起的巨大蘑菇,是由數百萬年前的火山灰隨著時間流逝逐漸磨蝕所形成。

 

Beneath the fairy chimneys are dozens of underground cities that once housed thousands of people. For centuries, as Cappadocia was repeatedly invaded by outsiders, the underground cities served as the locals’ hiding places. One of the largest is the Kaymakli underground city, which has tunnels that are still in use today.

在精靈煙囪底下有數十個曾住著好幾千人的地下城。幾個世紀以來,由於卡帕多奇亞不斷遭受異族入侵,地下城成了當地人的藏身之處。其中最大的一個是凱馬克利地下城,裡面的通道至今仍在使用。

 

After seeing Cappadocia’s underground world, it’s time to rise into the air in a hot-air balloon. Seeing the fairy chimneys from above, against the white valley and the glowing sun, is truly a magical experience.

在看過卡帕多奇亞的地底世界後,就是搭乘熱氣球升空的時候了。在白色山谷和熾熱陽光的映襯下,從上空俯瞰精靈煙囪確實是一個美妙的體驗。
