【看CP學英文】因疫情持續於全球擴散,許多人取消出國計畫,改於國內旅遊,也發現台灣有許多可媲美國外的隱藏版秘境。近年來,座落於馬祖外島有「臺版小希臘」之稱的部落成最夯網紅拍照景點。

As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread across the world, many have canceled travel plans abroad and instead opted for more local, mini-vacations. 

In fact, Taiwan has many hidden gems that are second to none when it comes to travel.

Recently, a little settlement located on the Matsu Islands, nicknamed “Taiwanese little Greece” has become a popular tourist attraction.

北竿芹壁部落號稱「馬祖地中海」為目前保存的最完整的馬祖閩東傳統建築聚落。古城倚著山勢呈階梯狀排列、面向湛藍大海,來到此喝杯咖啡、享用早午餐宛如置身於地中海。

The Beigan Chin-Bi Settlement, also known as the “Matsu Mediterranian,” has one of the most well-preserved examples of traditional Eastern Min architecture on the island. 

The ancient city leans against the mountain in a terraced arrangement and faces the blue sea. There, you can go for a cup of coffee or brunch and feel as if you were watching the Mediterranean sea.

傍晚時分,不妨前往南竿津沙部落,踏著沙灘、欣賞最美夕陽。津沙部落同樣保有馬祖傳統閩東建築,但與芹壁部落相比之下較為蕭瑟,藤蔓盤踞於石縫之中,在此神秘廢墟中穿梭,享受探險樂趣。

In the evening, you may wish to head to the Nangan Jin-Sha Settlement and take a stroll on the beach whilst enjoying the beautiful sunset.

The Jin-Sha Tribe also maintains the traditional Eastern Min architecture of Matsu. However, compared with the Chin-Bi Settlement, it appears more desolate as vines entrench itself in the stone cracks. Go and visit this mysterious ruins and enjoy the adventure.
