【看CP學英文】如果你以為新北市只有野柳公園和九份老街,那你就大錯特錯啦!今天就讓我們來介紹四個秘境,讓你看到不一樣的新北市。

Known for its tourist attractions such as Yehliu Geopark (野柳地質公園) and Jiufen Old Street (九份老街), New Taipei City boasts of spectacular coastlines and mountains.

However, if you’re looking to avoid large crowds, here are four locations less known, yet still magnificent travel destinations that you shouldn’t miss when you go to New Taipei City!

飛碟屋遺址|The Abandoned UFO Houses

建造於1978年的神秘飛碟造型屋,原是規劃為高級度假園區,但後因石油危機造成的周轉不靈而不得停工。數起死亡車禍和自殺案接連發生,夜晚的飛碟屋漸漸變成民眾試膽的地方。由於年久失修,飛碟屋神秘,又不失復古,吸引眾多遊客前來拍照打卡。

Shaped as flying saucers, these bizarre UFO houses were constructed in 1978 and were originally planned to be a high-end vacation resort. However, the project was forced to a halt due to investment losses during the oil crisis.

Following its abandonment, rumors began to spread that the place was haunted after several fatal car accidents and suicides occurred in the area.

Dilapidated, the park exudes of a sense of mystery and antiquity. The vintage architecture attracts visitors far and wide, where many come to take gorgeous #Instaworthy photos to post on social media platforms.

只要站在登山步道上,就能盡情享受翡翠水庫的環繞山景和如畫般的島嶼,而這裡之所以被稱為鱷魚島正是因一座神似鱷魚的島嶼坐落在湛藍湖水中。當你厭煩繁雜的都市生活時,鱷魚島觀景平台是你前來散心充電的最佳地方。

Standing at the forest trails, you can enjoy the magnificent hills and picturesque islands surrounding Feitsui Reservoir. One of the islands — “Crocodile Island” got its name because when seen from afar, it resembles a crocodile sitting on the turquoise lake.

Refreshing and soothing, the observation deck of Crocodile Island is the perfect getaway place for when you’re tired from the hustle and bustle of cities!

金瓜石礦區本山礦場|Jinguashi Geopark

金瓜石礦區早期是支撐台灣礦業的重要礦區,不過隨著時間流逝,這裡演變成攝影師的絕佳拍攝場景。廣場中神祕的石頭陣搭配後方不滿青苔的山丘,一張張令人驚豔的相片就此誕生。

Jinguashi Geopark used to be an important gold-mining area, but with the passage of time, it has now become a popular spot for photography enthusiasts.

The mysterious rock formation in the square and the mossy hills in the background make for an astonishing array of photographs.

銀河洞瀑布|Silver Stream Cave Waterfall

要欣賞銀河洞瀑布之美,需先步行約15分鐘,雖然有些累人,不過當你親自感受到大自然的奧妙後,揮灑的汗水都是值得的。如果你想冒險,也可走到瀑布後方,享受天然的冷氣散熱一番。瀑布旁邊也有一座小寺廟,拜訪瀑布之餘,不妨到此休息一下

To appreciate this beautiful scenery in person, you have to first take a 15-minute hike. Although it may be a bit exhausting, all the sweat is worth it after you see the waterfall.

If you’re brave enough, you can even go behind the waterfall where you can experience the all-natural air conditioning! There is even a small temple near the waterfall that you should definitely visit!
