邁在泰語的意思解作新城市,源於數百年前的蘭納王朝,對港人而言,這個歷史文化氣息濃厚 的城市亦是個新鮮地。與曼谷、布吉等地不同的是,這裏民風純樸,是西方遊客遊泰國的必到之處。

另一新鮮地是與清邁距離不足 200 公里的清萊,從清邁到清萊,僅需三個半小時巴士車程。清邁 及清萊皆曾是數百年前蘭納王朝的首都,清萊城區並不算大,但它的的清新簡單,當地人的真摯笑 臉,卻不會讓人聯想起任何商業鬧區,尤如置身歐國小鎮。新一年來臨,來一場說走就走的旅行, 展開一場與別不同的泰北深度遊。

Spring 2017



4日清萊清邁推介行程 A 4 day itinerary in Northern Thailand DAY


從清萊機場出發前往黑廟,一座以死亡為題的博物館。連洗手間也 是暗黑系,感覺陰森恐怖。同樣有名的白廟以純白色為主,瑰麗堂皇 而饒富禪意。之後到達湄公河與金三角,了解此區由鴉片集散地蛻變 成泰、寮文化旅遊區的歷史。最後到種植茶葉的美斯樂村,在田間徜 徉,欣賞清萊壯麗的日落。 Begin your trip by driving from the Chiang Rai Airport to the Black Temple, a museum that displays various eerie artifacts about death. The next destination, White Temple is exquisitely constructed to showcase the traditional Thai Buddhist cultural values. It will leave you breathless with every visit! Up next, take a car ride to Maekong River and Golden Triangle to experience the exotic merge of Thai and Laos culture. End your day at Mae Salong to view the gorgeous sunset from one of many tea plantations.

清萊清邁三大關鍵Q&A! Q: 如何計劃清萊及清邁之旅? A: 從香港出發前往清萊,可以選擇乘搭HK Express的直 航,從清萊到清邁則可以選擇乘搭巴士、火車、自駕遊或飛 機,最後選擇由清邁回港。 Q: 如何同時購買兩張不同地點的機票? A: 搜索航班時可善用Multi-city功能,輕鬆計劃多航點之旅。 Q: 可以介紹清萊及清邁這兩個航點嗎? A: 從香港出發,不用三小時即能到達清萊國際機場及清邁國 際機場。清萊國際機場距離市中心只有八公里。





行程的第二天,來到有「瀑布天堂」美譽的杜郎國家公園。它由 四大瀑布主題園區組成,地貌豐富多變。其中更有高達九層的瀑 布景點,為清萊最壯觀的瀑布之一,大自然的鬼斧神工必能令您 嘆為觀止!若嫌不停步行太累,沿途更有不少水質清澈的小池, 讓人在當中戲水、稍作休息。 Visit Doi Luang National Park which is composed of 4 waterfall forest parks with extensive picnicking sites with gorgeous and complex geology. Among them, the staggering 9-level Poo Kang Waterfall is one of the biggest waterfalls in Chiang Rai. Don’t forget to take a dip into the crystal-clear pool!



第三天經過三個半小時的巴士車程,由清萊到達清邁。先到訪歷史 悠久的柴迪隆寺。它見證了泰國六百多年滄桑,當年雕欄玉砌仍隱 約可見。相反,旁邊的盼道寺外觀平實。它曾經是鑄佛場,出產不少 泰北寺廟的佛像。與其他華麗的寺廟大相逕庭,盼道寺外觀為沉實 的黑色,別樹一格。 Take a 3.5 hour bus trip from the National Park to Chiang Mai, a city surrounded by neighboring ancient towns with shimmering pagodas, waiting to be re-discovered. Wat Chedi Luang temple is one of the most remarkable temples with long history, enshrining a golden statue of the Buddha. Neighboring Wat Phan Tao temple was once a studio for constructing Buddhist statues. Contrary to other glamorous Thai temples, the Wat Phan Tao Temple employs a unique dark color tone in its architecture.



第四天在清邁舊城區蹓躂,到蘭納皇朝的五個古城牆遺址參觀,感 受這個昔日首都的氣勢。之後來到位處山上、由純金打造的雙龍寺, 參拜與欣賞其精緻造工,並在黃昏時份觀賞清邁美麗的夜景,為旅 途劃上完美句號。 Roam around the ancient town of Chiang Mai and visit the five ruins of the City Wall of Lan Na regime from the ancient times. After that, move towards the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep which is entirely made of gold. The extravagant interior decorations will surely impress you! To conclude the trip, hang around to enjoy the scenic night view from the temple.

Spring 2017



湄公河與金三角 Mekong River & Golden Triangle 泰

國鄰近寮國及緬甸,三國接壤的三角地帶俗稱金三角,可以沿世界聞名的湄公河坐船到達。湄公河 是世界第十二長的河流,流經西藏、雲南及五個東南亞國家。 金三角地帶曾經盛產鴉片,是毒梟雲集的地方,充滿神秘色彩。但當地政府近年積極打造這裏成為新興旅 遊區。從清萊市中心到金三角約一小時車程,河邊有面積不大的鴉片博物館及幾座寺廟,可以在河畔碼頭 登上遊覽船參加一天遊,遊覽湄公河及金三角風貌。 遊覽船會安排遊客登上一個寮國小島,感受異地風情,有膽量的人可一嘗當地特產罌粟籽餅乾及蛇酒、 蠍子酒。在金三角花上半天,即可初步了解泰、緬、寮文化,是不錯的深度遊行程之一。


he Mekong river is a transboundary river in Southeast Asia and is also the world’s 12th-longest river. From the Tibetan Plateau, the river runs through China’s Yunnan Province, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Today, over 10 million people live, work and play along the river. The Golden Triangle is located in Chiang Rai Province, situated in the far north of Thailand. This is the meeting area between Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. You can join a one-day local tour to visit both Mekong River and the Golden Triangle. Full of fascinating culture and breathtaking views, a trip to the Mekong River and Golden Triangle is truly an eye-opener for travellers keen to veer off the beaten path.

清萊 - 美斯樂村 Chiang Rai - Doi Mae Salong 美

斯樂村是泰北的隱世聖境,素有「泰國春城」及「中國村」的美譽。當年的國共抗戰後,國民 黨殘部及其後裔撒退至此,及後以雙手堅毅地築起一個屬於自己的美麗家園。 高山上種滿高品質的茶葉,阿卡族及傈僳族族民穿着傳統服飾在四周活動,家家戶戶貼有揮春及 甚具中國特式的佈置。在市集上,各式的特產在售賣,例如茶葉、咖啡、水果及手製工藝等,還有別 具風味的雲南菜。景點不單止茶園,還有泰北義民文史館。這一切的另類文化使美斯樂村成為泰 北地區最具自然風光及人文景觀的旅遊勝地。晚上不妨在此留宿一夜,站在茶園內與日落揮別這 完美的一天。




oi Mae Salong is located in the northwestern region of Chiang Rai province, well-known for its tea plantations. The high mountain Oolong Tea is famous in Thailand. Visit the Queen Mother’s tomb and take in the endless fields of greenery accompanied by the captivating smells coming from the hilltop. Interestingly, the Doi Mae Salong was founded by the remaining Kuomintang (KMT) troops who fled Yunnan in the early 1960s. 泰北義民文史館 地址:Mae Fa Luang District, Mae Salong Nok, Chiang Rai 57110 開放時間:08:00-17:00

地貌奇偉的瀑布天堂 — 杜郎國家公園 A Paradise of Waterfalls 杜

郎國 家公 園 得 享 泰 北 豐富 的天 然資源,地形複雜而風景優美,深受外 國登山客歡迎。千山萬壑,由北連綿至 南,最高點達海 拔 1,6 9 4 米,其中高達 九層的Poo Kang瀑布為行程的一大亮點。 沿 着 瀑 布 拾 級 而上,可 以一 邊 欣 賞 美 景,一邊細聽潺潺流水和陣陣鳥鳴。沿 園區西部起始的行山徑走,可飽覽一共 九個宏偉的瀑布!山徑起點位置大約於 清萊與潘縣邊界北部之間的公路旁。正 所謂「欲窮千里目,更上一層樓」,要完 成這條有挑戰性的登山徑,就要付出相 當體力。由於山路或許會有較濕滑和險 要處,旅客可到沿途兩個收費合理的行 李寄存點,卸下多餘行裝,以減輕體力 負擔。 地址:Amphoe Mae Suai, Amphoe Phan, Amphoe Wiang Pa Pao, Chiang Rai




orthern Thailand’s geography is made up of complex high-mountain topography which stretches from north to south, with the highest point being 1,694 meters in elevation. Yet instead of the high-rise mountains, the main attraction here are the waterfalls. The 9-level Poo Kang Waterfall is one not to miss! On your way up to the waterfall, not only can you enjoy the beautiful scenes, but also indulge in the sounds of the waterfall and embrace the nature, away from the bustle of the city. The set of nine waterfalls is accessible by a bush track leading from the western edge of the park. It starts at the western side of the highway just north of the provincial border between Chiang Rai and Phayao province. On the approach to the track, there are two places that offer to store your possessions, which may charge you a small fee. It is worth the investment as the track could be a little slippery and demanding on the way. Spring 2017



清邁 柴迪隆寺 Chiang Mai - Wat Chedi Luang

進清邁古城區,總有三五間寺廟在您附近。最具歷史價值的定是當地三大寺 廟之一的柴迪隆寺。寺廟門外還有一檔很有名的泰式奶茶攤,記得不要錯過。建於 1441年的柴迪隆寺在泰文解作大塔寺,直至二十世紀前仍是泰國最高的建築物。寺 廟曾經歷大地震及泰緬戰爭,約20年前才再次修繕。走到寺廟門外,仍舊是泰式寺 廟一貫的金碧輝煌,但這個歷盡滄桑的寺廟卻沒有沾上半分俗味。在寺廟的後方是 被炸掉一角的大佛塔,古蹟已被圍欄圍上作保護之用。受盡天災人禍的大佛塔損毀 嚴重,外牆雕刻輪廓已模糊、四面的大象石雕剩下寥寥數隻,而塔內的金色佛像仍 然完好屹立數百年。沒有親歷其境,絕不能深深感受當中的歷史痕跡。


ithin the old city of Chiang Mai lies many fascinating temples to explore, but the most iconic one you surely cannot miss is the famous Wat Chedi Luang. Erected in 1441, it once housed the Emerald Buddha, the holiest religious object in Thailand, before a strong earthquake in 1545 caused severe damage to the temple. Regardless of such destruction, Wat Chedi Luang still stands as the tallest structure in its area, guarded by stone structures of elephants and mythical snakes. Restoration never occured - instead, multiple temples were added in later years. A large temple next to the Wat Chedi Luang encompasses a standing Buddha, and nearby the entrance lies two protectors of Chiang Mai - the deeply respected Dipterocarp tree and the spiritual city pillar. Remember to pay Wat Chedi Luang a visit when in Chiang Mai.



雙龍寺 Wat Phra That Doi Suthep 未

去過雙龍寺,就等於未來過泰國清邁。全國最有名的雙 龍寺有600 多年歷史,據聞寺廟由純金打造,白天到訪能感受 到其莊嚴神聖並可拜佛祈福,而晚上亦有另一番獨特體會。雙 龍寺距離市區40 分鐘車程,到達後要爬上300多級樓梯,但亦 可選擇以車、纜車或自行租摩托車登頂。但要注意上山路段彎 道較多,自行駕車人士要留神。傍晚時分,整座寺廟發出閃閃 金光,更能在寺廟後方的露台一邊聽着誦經聲,一邊欣賞到清 邁美麗的夜景。


ancy a hike up to one of Northern Thailand’s most sacred temples? Wat Phra That Doi Suthep stands above a 306-step staircase, shimmering gold with 600 years of history. Flag down a tuk-tuk to save yourself from a 15km hike up Mount Suthep, and start your adventure by visiting the Emerald Buddha, historical murals and shrines. From the main temple, walk along the pathway towards the terrace, and you’ll be mesmerized by the breathtaking views of Chiang Mai. Next to the terrace is one of the world’s largest gongs, so don’t forget to experience producing the rich ‘gong’ sound before you leave!

四月泰好玩 - 潑水節 Songkran Festival

國有 365 天吃不盡的美食及迷人的沙灘,更有人人嚮 往的潑水節(又稱宋干節,Songkran ),於每年 4月13 至15 日,大家會以互相潑水來慶祝。由於水象徵純淨,有洗去過去 一年的厄運及沾上福氣的寓意,故此大家均會以全身濕透來 迎接新一年。其中,以清萊、清邁及布吉的潑水節最受觸目。 泰國新年有不同的新年習俗及慶祝活動。泰北地區國民會到 寺廟堆砌沙塔,祈求五谷豐收,佛教徒們會前往寺廟祭拜祈福 及聆聽頌經,並為神聖的佛像灑上去邪淨水,而重頭戲是帕辛 佛像(Phra Buddha Sihing)的迎神儀式。南面的布吉,除在 街上潑水外,節日期間更有花車遊行、文藝表演、選美活動及 佈施法會等,務求人人投入在這個狂歡泰式新年派對。


ongkran festival celebrates New Year’s Day in Thailand. Similar to other New Year’s around the world, it spans across 3 days, from 13-15 April every year. What makes the Songkran festival so special is that nobody gets away without being splashed! While it is fun splashing around, this ritual has an elusive side to it. Symbolizing purity, water is known for cleansing oneself. The action of splashing water on one another embodies washing away misfortune from the previous year: in turn, wishing you a year filled with blessings. Water guns are allowed, so be sure to grab your little ones and celebrate Songkran in Thailand! Head over to Chiang Mai / Phuket for an exuberant celebration this year!



布吉 — 海上天堂 Phuket in all its tropical charm 如

果泰北是令人感到輕鬆自在的小清新,那它的另一端則是活力繽紛的海上天堂。最具代表 性的南部城市布吉是個令人流連忘返的天堂。布吉有接近300個大小島嶼,每天身在陽光與海灘 之中,令人無法離開這個被評為一生人一定要去一次的地方。皇帝島、珊瑚島等更是浮潛勝地。 除了海灘外,布吉的酒吧街及夜市亦是必去的地方。

皇帝島椰林樹影,水清沙幼,藍天白雲,是距離布吉僅12公里的世外桃源。想遠離曼谷的煩囂, 布吉的喧鬧,可以選擇坐船到這裏過上悠然一天,甚至以浮潛形式逃到水底,靜聽海水流動的動 人樂章。古時候泰國人來到此島度假,發現踏着柔軟無比的細沙、望着碧海藍天,猶如皇帝般享 受,因此命名為皇帝島。遊客如欲一嘗「土皇帝」的滋味,可報當地一天團,或直接找代理安排行 程。不少到皇帝島的遊客,正是看中這裏人流相對較少,未受污染。島上的珊瑚礁集中生長在較 淺水海域,故探頭一望已能看到三五成群魚兒及五彩十色的珊瑚群。順帶一提,浮潛時可攜帶防 水相機,隨手一拍,魚群處處,就連腳下游走的魚群亦無處可逃,盡收眼底之下。




ined with pristine beaches and filled with a paradiselike atmosphere, Phuket’s weather averages 28℃ all year round, making it the ideal place for an island getaway. While on the island, enjoy the countless adrenalinepacked activities available on land, air, and sea. You can also visit many night markets to sample delicious Thai seafood, or head over to Bangla Road for a night out on a small budget! Nearby Phuket, there are many islands for you to explore. From the Phi Phi islands to the Racha islands, get ready to immerse yourself in paradise! The Racha islands are best known for diving and snorkeling amongst schools of tropical fish. Try to spot the puffer fish, giant star fish and rainbow trout during your expedition! Free from pollution, the crystal-clear bays allow tourists to explore colorful corals- remember to bring a waterproof camera to capture these breathtaking scenes! Presented to the world by the movie “The Beach” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, the Phi Phi islands certainly live up to its fame. With a holiday atmosphere, and tranquil turquoise waters all around, this is the holiday you’ve been dreaming of! Spring 2017



日落崖 Promthep Cape sunset 海

角天涯,似是觸手不可及之處,然而天神卻賜予了布吉 一份最美的禮物。布吉島最南端有個譽為「上帝的海角」的日 落崖,是觀賞日落最佳地方。日落崖距離巴東海灘約三十分鐘 車程,建議乘搭巴士或篤篤前往。到達後會首先看到一個燈 塔、神殿、寺廟及觀景區,眼前就是一望無際的大海,陣陣海 風迎面吹拂,帶走三十多度高温下的炎熱感。等待觀賞日落 前,還可以到附近一間專門供奉大象的神殿走走,裏面有數以 百計的小象雕像。記得要留意當天日落時間及天氣狀況,幸運 的話更可以在日落前後約半小時,欣賞到 Magic Moment,隨 着天色不斷改變,構成一幅幅令人讚嘆的畫面,此刻值千金。


iterally translating to “God’s Cape”, this heavenly spot provides astonishing views from the southernmost point of Phuket. The best time to visit Promthep Cape is during sunset, when the sun projects an amazing gradient on the skyline which perfectly reflects upon the ocean. Even during the day, you can see unobstructed views of Nai Ham Beach and Koh Kaew Island. Nearby Promthep Cape lies a lighthouse commemorating the Golden Jubilee of King Rama IX. A little further in leads you to a small museum filled with historical martime artefacts, and a different viewpoint of the small islands nearby. If you’re driving to Promthep Cape (which is around 30 minutes away from Patong Beach), be sure to vist some shops selling local handicrafts and snacks.



考朗廟坐佛 Wat Khao Rang 這

個廟並不是傳統旅遊熱點之一,但卻十分值得參觀。 位於山上的考朗廟遊客稀少,主要是當地民眾參拜曾是布吉 第一大的金身坐佛Wat Khao Rang。 要到達考朗廟,首先要登上長長樓梯,少點體力也不行。寺廟 莊嚴清靜,門及屋頂刻有傳統泰國宗教色彩的雕像。不論遠 觀或是近距離抬頭觀望,都會對宏偉的坐佛肅然起敬。 考朗廟之所以吸引當地人參拜,是因為於 2013 年圓寂、享年 118歲的泰國高僧龍婆素帕曾居於此。他9歲起成為僧人,年輕 時從未固定居於任何一處,四出幫助民眾,惟卻選擇老年居於 考朗廟多年,可見寺廟靈氣之盛。


ften missed by many tourist books and websites, Wat Khao Rang is a hidden treasure that is definitely worth a visit. The largest Golden Sitting Buddha in Phuket, it is famous amongst many locals who visit and pray there during the weekends. SuPa, a late monk who founded Wat Khao Rang, devoted his life to monkhood at the age of nine, and is dearly loved by many due to his acts of kindness. Inspired by SuPa, you can commonly see many families donating fresh food and alms to monks in the morning. Rejuvenate yourself in this tranquil atmosphere - a step away from the bustling side of Phuket.

屬於亞洲的漫天花雪 Snowy cherry blossoms all across East Asia 櫻

花的花語是生命、熱烈、純潔和高尚,當櫻花凋落時不污不染、很乾脆,同時,亦是對愛情的 象徵和寓意。所以,不分國籍和地域的情侶都會在花開時節前往賞櫻,以一沾櫻花帶來的愛情與幸 福。就算單身的人也希望櫻花能夠為自己帶來愛的祝福! 日本於江戶時代已種植櫻花,而且主要種植於水岸旁的堤防上,通過來賞櫻的人潮把土地踏實,以 解決水利問題。日本人喜歡帶同美酒與親朋好友一起坐在櫻花樹下把酒言歡。相反,台灣和中國的 櫻花則多種於山上,這與櫻花適合種植於較寒冷的地方有關,亦與中國文化喜歡從上而下欣賞,先 賞其花後聞其味有關。


herry blossoms are well-known in Japan, China and Korea and are best viewed in these places. The depiction of cherry blossom reminds viewers that life is short and beautiful, just like the cherry blossom that falls from the tree after just a few days. Asian culture also has a belief that sakura exemplifies human life, time is limited and to live in the moment.





約在花見時的浴火重生 Time for Hanami parties 櫻

花在日本別具意義!當年廣島和長崎在二次世界大戰經歷重傷後,人民一蹶不振,冰清欲滴的櫻花 在寒風後冒出枝頭,在冰火交融後帶來重新出發的新希望,而現在櫻花成了每年全新開始的象徵。 廣島的宮島是百大賞櫻點之一,亦是日本三景之一,其中以巖島為最有名的賞櫻勝地,可以說是歷史與浪 漫交織的神之島。在宮島登船,隨着海浪的推進,飄來陣陣夾帶海洋氣息的花香,並慢慢地投入擁有千年 歷史的大鳥居懷抱,引頸以待的櫻花在大鳥居後沿山綻放,為巖島抹上一層胭脂。 幸運的話會看見一群乖巧的小鹿站在碼頭,引領遊人展開神聖的櫻花之旅。若不怕累,可以沿着櫻花道走 到嚴島神社上的多寶塔,一邊享受櫻花雨的祝福,一邊細看對面若隱若現的五重塔,或是俯視山下民居與 櫻花互相穿插的獨有美景。若想輕鬆點,可以到嚴島神社出口附近的大願寺走走,甚至在潮退時走到大鳥 居,傾聽歷史的聲音。







t is a Japanese tradition to hold Hanami, or flower viewing parties under the blossom trees to mark the arrival of spring. Miyajima, a small island outside Hiroshima, has a long established reputation for hosting Hanami parties. The island takes pride in its magnificent blossom spectacles and shares the top spot with Tokyo and Kyoto for its blossom views. The scenic swaying cherry blossoms along the walkway to Itsukushima shrine is particularly spectacular and breathtaking. 01. 蜿蜒的櫻花道自大鳥居一直向山上延伸,引領遊人賞櫻的同時亦不忘一覽嚴島神社及各個古蹟。 02. 具有和式及唐式設計風格的嚴島神社是神聖的代表,亦屬於世界文化遺產。從社內的五重 塔可清楚看到山下的民居及遍地櫻花。 03. 大願寺歷史悠久,古寺配櫻花,別具日本風情!

嚴島神社 開放時間:06:30-18:00(冬天只開放至17:00) 地址:〒739-0588 広島県廿日市市宮島町 本年預計花期:3月23日至3月30日

三月只下櫻花雨 Blossom rain in Alishan forest 阿

鹿兒島櫻花大道 Cherry Blossom Avenue in Kagoshima 正

所謂一年之計在於春,又是時候計劃外遊第一擊:賞櫻。櫻花的滿開狀態通常為 開花後一周,所以建議先參考各地櫻花預報再作推算,便是賞櫻最佳時期。九州為日本 最溫暖地區,櫻花開得最早,所以不妨考慮前往九州鹿兒島縣賞櫻,約在 3月中便會開 花,比起關東關西地區稍早迎接春天,而賞櫻期亦頗長,直至四月初。 鹿兒島縣中,以北薩區伊佐市忠元公園的櫻花最為吸引,有着綿延兩公里的櫻花大道, 兩旁種植過千棵櫻花樹,是「日本賞櫻名所百選」之一。若適逢櫻花祭期間,更有過千個 燈籠懸掛,晚上點亮後,映照着櫻花隧道,另有一番情調。這樣便可從早到晚,一次過 欣賞日與夜兩種不同姿態的櫻花美景。 指宿市魚見岳

s the saying goes - a year’s plan starts with spring, it is time to plan ahead for a trip to see cherry blossoms! Instead of visiting the same place every year, you may want to consider Kagoshima Prefecture. Located in the southern tip of Japan, Kagoshima has an earlier spring than the Kanto and Kansai regions. The cherry blossom viewing period is quite long, running from March to early April. Tadamoto Park in Okuchi Harada, Isa-shi, is the most attractive viewing spot. There is the two kilometrelong Cherry Blossom Avenue with over 1,000 cherry trees on both sides. It is named one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Viewing Sites. During the Cherry Blossom Festival, over 1,000 lanterns are on display. The cherry blossom tunnel is lit up at night creating a special ambiance. The daytime view and nighttime view are different but equally beautiful. Spring 2017



綠意盎然古城 鹿兒島 南九州市 說 知覽武家屋敷庭園 這個地方被稱為「薩摩的小京都」,因為武家屋敷庭園不只保留了古時候的 庭園及建築群,連整個氣氛也彷似停留於 260 年前的古代一樣。時至今日, 屋內仍有人居住,令這裏充滿生機。走進園內,會發現這裏的人潮相對京都 少得多。遊人可以漫步於各個庭園,由門外的石塊到屋內的和式庭園逐一仔 細欣賞。到了日落時分,光景更是漂亮迷人,愛拍照的必定喜歡。

秘密花園 — 塞班島 Saipan, the secret garden 塞

班島是個人傑地靈,山清水秀,廣被嚮往的旅遊勝地。她除了著名的海灣外,其獨特的山勢成為了 行山愛好者的挑戰地。由於塞班島十分大,故遊人均會以汽車代步至特定景點時才開始攀行。


aipan is the capital of the US Commonwealth in the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) situated in the Pacific Ocean. Arguably the most beautiful place in the region, this tropical pearl of the Pacific is a dream holiday destination.





Forbidden Island

禁斷島位於塞班島的東南面,是一個半離島,當潮漲時,在觀 景臺上可看到平頂的禁斷島與塞班島分開,在蔚藍的海洋中 獨領風騷。相傳禁斷島是當年祈雨的祭天場所,活生生的人被 成為祭品,導致很多人到現在也不敢前來,故此錯過了很多得 天獨厚的景致。若自問是勇敢的話,可沿着觀景台走下去,但 部分路段會較陡峭,須格外小心!走了大概一半路程時,可見 禁斷島已經近在咫尺。翠綠的山巒、碧綠的後海灣上飄着朵朵 白雲,映照得禁斷島無比耀眼!若是潮退時,可以走到島上, 會發現有一個天然游泳池,四周被珊瑚礁圍繞着,海水清澈見 底,珊瑚魚、小蝦等都在自由暢泳。喜歡水上運動的,更可趁 機舒展一下,游泳或浮潛都十分適合。若不想下水的,也可坐 在岩石上,聽着海浪拍打岩石的聲音,感受澎湃的海洋奏樂。

Once in Saipan, you will be treated to a host of exciting activities like swimming, snorkeling and trekking but hiking the Forbidden Island is a top item on the agenda of most visitors. Linked to the main island by a narrow land strip which becomes submerged at high tide, the Forbidden Island was once a venue for religious activities. Though not recommended for the faint-hearted, the island is hugely popular with hiking fans who take delight in the stunning picturesque sea views on the hike. There are also a couple of tide pools on the island bounded by coral reefs and teeming with small marine creatures - ideal for swimmers and snorkeling fans to show off their skills. Alternatively, you can just sit on a rock and enjoy the sounds of the crashing waves.

塞班島景色多元化,絕對是一個上山下海都十分適合的旅遊好 去處!

01. 平頂的禁斷島非常突出,在觀景台上已經能夠被清楚看到。在潮漲時更可看到禁斷島與塞班島分隔的獨有景象。02. 像真度極高的老人頭像 默默地守候着濱海老人這片屬地。03. 坦克海灘的沙子裏混有很多星砂,相傳若能夠找到八星形的會被祝福呢!



濱海老人 濱海老人是一個隱藏着的小海灘。要走下濱海老人的路段 較禁斷島的陡峭及濕滑,但卻較短。當穿過叢林後便到達海 邊,可以看到一個老人臉頰的岩石在海邊望向遙遙他方,而 海水不斷地為他洗刷着臉上的污垢。由於這裏海面平坦,沒 有任何阻擋,海浪肆意地拍打着岩石,形成疊疊千尺浪,當 陽光照射在海上更會閃閃生輝。遊人都愛站在右方的岩石 上,近距離地感受太平洋的魅力。

Old Man by the Sea Taking its name from a rock formation resembling the head of an old man looking out to the sea, this landmark figure can be accessed by a trail from Kagman village. The jungle trek takes about 30 minutes and the Old Man is there ready to greet you at the end of the trail. It is said that the right side of the beach is the best vantage point to view the splashing waves.

坦克海灘 離禁斷島不遠處有一坦克海灘,其沙並不幼細柔軟、海灘 也不是最漂亮,但卻十分有名氣。全因在二次世界大戰時, 美國坦克在此登陸,令其聞名於世。坦克海灘海岸線廣闊, 看着一朵朵水晶般的浪花從四方八面向岸邊推進,真的是只 能意會不能言傳。另外,這裏的沙子很特別,當中混合了很多 星砂,那是來自珊瑚的碎片,傳說能夠找到八角星形的會得 到祝福,因此,不少遊人都嘗試尋找。除了星砂外,寄居蟹也 是坦克海灘上的另一特色,小小的寄居蟹愛躲到貝殼內,在 沙灘上慢慢地移動着,十分惹人憐愛!

Tank Beach Its unique name is a reminder of the fierce Pacific Campaign in 1944 when US tanks landed on the beach to reclaim the island from the Japanese. The submerged tank is there for all to reminisce on the island hopping warfare. Now peaceful and relaxing, Tank Beach is a hot spot for beachgoers thanks to its clear, unpolluted water and fine sand. Visitors can spend a leisurely afternoon simply sunbathing, enjoying the refreshing sea breeze and watching hermit crabs roam through the star-shaped sand. Legend has it that the rare 8-shaped variant can bring good luck to people. Do keep a keen eye on this luck enhancing variety when strolling along the beach. Spring 2017

玄空洞是最大最壯觀的石灰洞穴,洞內供奉了一尊四公尺高的觀音,雕琢精細,栩栩如生;另外還有兩座 小廟。洞頂擁有五道裂縫,滲入日光,把洞內照亮,而光線最後會被反射到石壁上,把大理石深淺不一的 紋理都呈現出來,形成多層變幻!在大佛後有一條分岔路分別寫着:「上天堂」、「下地獄」,若選擇「上天 堂」便要徒手攀爬狹窄的雲通洞,到達「望海臺」,在那可把南中國海盡收眼簾。爬一趟五行山就有如把 越南的歷史讀了一部分!

01.七層佛塔屬於最高級的佛塔,是靈應寺內的代表建築。02.栩栩 如生的大佛守護着通往「望海臺」的雲通洞入口。03.日光從裂 縫中射進來,把洞內的一切照亮,連石壁也被反射出不同層次 的色彩。04.三台寺與前方安坐的彌勒佛。

位於寧波的普陀山是中國佛教四大名山之一,與山西五台山、 四川峨眉山、安徽九華山齊名。普陀山四面環海,遠離塵世 紛爭,在這裏可以感受到佛門的清幽氣息。亦因為普陀山座落 海中央,故有海天佛國的美譽。

This Buddhist holy place is one of the four sacred mountains of Buddhism in China - the other three being Mount Wutai, Mount Jinhua and Mount Emei. Located in the vicinity of Ningbo and rising in the middle of the sea, Mount Putuo is considered a seaside Buddhist oasis as well as a traditional enclave for highly venerable monks in the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. The Puji Monastery, the Fayu Monastery and the Huiji Monastery at Mount Putuo are among the most famous monasteries in history. For devout Buddhists, don’t miss the Guanyin celebrations held on the nineteenth day of the second lunar month each year.

山上共有20多座寺廟,當中最大的有「前寺」普濟禪寺、「後寺」 法雨禪寺及「佛頂山」慧濟禪寺。三月春,晴雨多變的季節,亦是 農曆二月十九的觀音誕,是普陀山最熱鬧的日子之一。來自國內 外的信眾會聚集於此,通宵達旦地誦經禮佛,香火鼎盛。 不管是否信眾,亦可到廟內吃一頓齋飯,淨化身心;若不喜歡齋 飯,亦可一嘗有名的海鮮,山上的海鮮園集中了五十多間海鮮餐 館,新鮮美味的海鮮經常吸引慕名而來的遊客。 早於二千多年前,普陀山已是道人修煉之寶地,也是文人雅士隱 居或遊覽勝地。四周還有很多沙灘,最為人熟悉的是百步沙及千 步沙,在沙灘漫步時聽着禪音與浪聲交織,一海之隔,把塵世隔 於千里外。 地址:舟山市定海區

Non-buddhists can enjoy a delicious vegetarian meal at affordable prices at one of the temples. The impressive lineup of fifty plus seafood garden restaurants up the mountain also offer tasty menus for non-vegetarians. For the intending visitor, an overnight stay would be preferred, as sightseeing spots and scenic places abound at Mount Putuo are awaiting to be explored.



天一閣 老外灘 歷史悠久的天一閣建於明朝,是亞洲最古老的藏書閣,現位 於寧波市中心月湖公園旁。由於火是書卷的最大敵人,於是藏 書閣主人明朝兵部右侍郎范欽取其五行中「天一生水」的意 思,由於書忌火,而水能剋火,「天一閣」名稱因而得來。閣樓 的建築設計亦展現當年的民間防火智慧。 寧波人愛書如命,天一閣內裏藏書數萬卷,博物館展廳陳列 着范家走遍五湖四海收集而來的書籍,每天慕名而來的人多 不勝數。但根據族規,外姓人不得登閣閱書。相傳嘉慶年間有 一才女為登閣一睹數萬藏書,不惜嫁入范家,卻因婦女終生 不得登閣的族規而鬱鬱而終。 天一閣還有另一噱頭,便是有個麻將起源地陳列館,用以紀 念麻將發明者寧波人陳政鑰,並收藏着來自世界各國的珍稀 麻將牌組。 逛完了天一閣後往北走,經過江廈橋便到達老外灘,這裏自 唐宋起便是最繁華的港口之一,現主要為酒吧街、休聞娛樂 區。看着迷人外灘夜景,輕嘗進杯中物,沉澱這個新舊交融的 寧波吧。

TianYi Ge Square For avid readers, TianYi Ge in Ningbo is a treasure trove well worth exploring. Founded in the Ming dynasty, it is the oldest existing library in Asia with its name, TianYi, implying copious water in Chinese metaphysics. Folk wisdom has it that the ‘watery’ name can subdue any fire breaking out in the library and offer protection to the books it houses. The mahjong exhibition hall inside TianYi Ge is a must-see for fans of this square table game. It is an eye-opening experience to see the collection of rare sets of mahjong tiles on display there. The ancient library is now a landmark of Ningbo. Take a tour in its garden and learn how one private book collected during the Ming dynasty started it all. On the modern side of the city, neighbouring TianYi Square is a spacious multi-function megacomplex in downtown Ningbo with many shops, leisure, entertainment and cultural facilities including a host of restaurants serving a prolific range of cuisines. Have a pint or two in one of the pubs on the “Old Bund” (Laowaitan) before calling it a day. 天一閣 地址:寧波市海曙區天一街5號 開放時間:08:00-17:30(夏季) 08:00-17:00(冬季)

大米與海鮮 芽莊美食 A parade of Nha Trang savouries

莊為越南中南部的旅遊重鎮、潛水勝地,是背包客最愛的越南城市之一。當地 海灣以水清沙幼見稱,並擁有豐富的海洋資源,亦有婆那加塔等珍貴的歷史遺蹟。 有此美景,又怎能缺少佳餚呢!今天就向海鮮和甜品的愛好者介紹幾款名字有趣的 特色菜餚:米線類Bánh Canh、Bún Chá、Bún Ca和燒餅Bánh Căn,以及各款大 牌檔美食和甜品,誓要將芽莊美食一網打盡!


ocated in Southern Vietnam and famous for its fine beaches, Nha Trang is a popular spot for diving fans and backpackers alike. As if to complement its beautiful views, rich marine resources and Po Nagar ruins, Nha Trang also boasts a fine array of mouthwatering savouries few palates can afford to miss. Let’s take a look at some local specialties with exotic names like Banh Canh, Bun Cha, Bun Ca and Banh Căn among others.

Spring 2017





1 濃湯米線 Bánh Canh 只要略懂越南文的人,都會知道 Bánh 指米線,而 Canh 則指 湯。Bánh Canh由米製麵條,與粗身、黏口的日本烏冬外形及 口感都非常類似,淋上比普通湯麵濃稠的湯底。Bánh Canh的配 料種類繁多,一般以肉與菇類為主,但最鮮甜美味的莫過於以 蟹作為配料的款式! Bánh Canh Bà Thừa 地址:55 Yersin, Phước Hòa, Tp. Nha Trang, Khánh Hòa 營業時間:07:00-22:00

2 炸魚米線 Bún Ca、烤肉米線 Bún Chá Bún Ca是指配以炸魚、炸魚餅的米線,而Bún Chá則是烤肉 米線。芽莊最受歡迎的鯖魚和生魚,一般會被用於製作生魚片 及魚肉,或者被製成香甜彈牙的魚餅,然後按個人喜好放入米 線之中。其中,被炸至金黃酥脆的魚餅或鮮魚肉,配搭中等粗 幼身的米線十分惹味可口!如果不喜歡魚的食客,可以選擇以 烤肉配米線,味道絕不遜色!甚至連前美國總統奧巴馬與拜登 到訪越南時,也特地品嘗了一碗 Bún Chá烤肉米線呢。

Bún Chả Quang Sang 地址:7 Hàn Thuyên, Tp. Nha Trang, Khánh Hòa 營業時間:07:00-22:00


3 芽莊煎餅 Bánh Căn



再來一道名字與以上三者相似的菜式--香脆的Bánh Căn煎餅。 這款越南中南部獨有的街頭小食,由米漿和雞蛋或鵪鶉蛋,以 及各種海鮮、芽菜、大葱製成。廚師會使用附有小圓蓋的特製 陶泥模烤製,新鮮製成的煎餅,外脆內軟,無論大人還是小孩 都一定愛吃。 Bánh Căn 51 - Tô Hiến Thành 地址:51 Tô Hiến Thành, Tp. Nha Trang, Khánh Hòa 營業時間:04:00-21:00

4 惹火的大牌檔

來到芽莊覓食,不能不到當地大牌檔。越南人愛把蝸牛清蒸、油 炸、快炒、炭燒等。小蝸牛口感順滑像生蠔,配以椰香咖喱、大 葱和洋葱,充滿南洋風格。花螺與港式煮法十分相似,廚師在 烹煮過程中加了辣椒、青檸汁和檸檬草提味,令整道菜的辣香 味提升,刺激食客的味蕾。溫馨提示:若想食得更精明,建議去 城北的Thap Ba Street 會比市中心便宜!


“Hai San” - Dong Xuan restaurant 地址:28 Tháp Bà, Vĩnh Thọ, Tp. Nha Trang, Khánh Hòa

5 芽莊夜市的豐盛甜品 吃過香辣的美食,當然要以甜品解一解辣。芽莊夜市裏有 多間可以品嘗重口味椰漿米糕Chè Đậu Trắng的店舖。除 此之外,還有售賣果味清甜的雜果雪糕涼粉Chè、解渴的 綠茶、越式咖啡等,一應倶全。外表七彩繽紛、美味清甜的 甜食完完全全霸佔整個口腔,帶來滿滿的幸福感! Nha Trang Night Market 地址:78 Tuệ Tĩnh, Lộc Thọ, Tân Lập, Khánh Hòa 650000 營業時間:09:00-00:00

矜貴松阪和牛 Savour the ultimate Wagyu experience

客來港必吃點心和掃街,否則枉到 「美食天堂」。放諸日本三重縣,便演繹 為「不嘗過松阪頂級和牛的滋味,就不算 來過三重縣!」松阪牛與神戶牛、近江牛 並稱為日本三大和牛,是日本的國寶級和 牛,更被冠以「肉的藝術品」美稱。


燒烤鍋物 各具特色 和牛的常見煮法有壽喜燒和網燒。壽喜燒是把松阪牛與大葱、生菜、豆腐、芋絲等配 料,在濃郁的醬油與味醂湯中煮熟,最適合一家人在乍暖還寒的春季享用。至於網燒 是最能保留牛肉天然肉香的烹調方法。直接把肉架於明火上的鐵網烤熟,油花從肉間 滲出,外皮焦脆,內部保持生肉的嫩滑。之後蘸醬油和蒜蓉,提升味道的層次感。

o one would consider his or her Mieken trip complete without tasting Matsusaka wagyu beef. Best known for its excellent quality, it is considered one of the top three brands of Japanese beef, along with Kobe and Yonezawa beef. Japanese people regard Matsusaka beef as an “edible work of art ”.

Unique characteristics of different dishes Common cooking techniques of this premium beef include Sukiyaki and grilling. For Sukiyaki, the beef is boiled with vegetables and mushrooms, in an iron pot with a mixture of soy sauce and mirin. Enjoying with raw eggs is the best way to highlight its rich, salty-sweet flavour. If you prefer having beef that is lightly charred on the outside; juicy and tender inside, you will not go wrong with grilling. Don’t forget to dip it in soy sauce and minced garlic to spice it up! 01


精心飼養 品質保證 三重縣松阪牛是指那些於兵庫縣出生, 但從未生育的但馬黑毛小母牛。牠們在 松阪以嚴格的監控、特別的飼料及方法 飼養。基本的飼料包括豆腐渣和研磨小 麥。若牛隻缺乏胃口,農夫會餵牠們喝 啤酒及施以按摩,以確保其身體健康、 肉質 鮮 嫩。松 阪牛之 所以 深受 食 家歡 迎,全因其肉質細緻柔滑。脂肪呈網狀 霜降紋,入口即融。以「肉如柔荑,膚如 凝脂」來形容絕不為過。

Quality assurance

01. 以明火網燒松阪牛,絕對是惹味之選。02.「幻ミスジ」是松阪牛的內肩肉,軟滑而有嚼勁。

Matsusaka beef is produced from Tajima-ushi female cows chiefly born in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. They are fed nutritious soy pulp, ground wheat and receive massages to stimulate their appetite. These treatments contribute to the high fat-to-meat ratio and tender texture of the beef.

旅遊資訊 Travel Tips

小豆島、女木島、金刀比羅宮 Shodoshima, Megijima , Kotohiragu

豆島的面積大,若想一天內完成行程,建議精選某幾個 景點觀光。由於地點分散,遊人可選擇自駕遊、乘坐巴士(班 次不多)或計程車服務。最推介參加定期觀光巴士,會途經多 個旅遊熱點,既省時又方便!另外要介紹的是女木島,景點主 要集中於大洞窟,由碼頭徒步約需40分鐘,要上斜及樓梯,需 要較大體力,可考慮租借電動單車代步。每年12月至2月,往 返大洞窟的巴士只限於周六日和假期行駛,遊人記得留意。最 後要介紹的是金刀比羅宮,參道兩旁有商店擺放「木杖」供遊 人使用。但不是所有都免費提供,有些要光顧才可使用,而且 回程時須放回原處,遊客使用時須留意!


hodoshima is the second largest island in Seto inland sea. Separating Honshiu, Shikoku and Kyushu - three of the four main islands of Japan, the Seto Inland Sea commonly known as Setouchi is where the contemporary art festival, Setouchi Triennale is held every three years. Due to the large size of the island, it is recommended for tourists to rent a car, take a taxi or tour bus to get around. Above all, a sight-seeing tour bus may be the easiest and most comfortable way to explore the island. Megijima Island is also a nice spot to travel. Although Megijima is small, its mountain is quite high to be explored on foot. An electric bike is recommended for accessing the cave as the road up the mountain is rather steep. To reach the Kotohiragu shrine in Kotohira, travellers can begin amongst a touristy shopping arcade filled with souvenir shops and from where it is, a 785 step climb up past a number of auxiliary shrine buildings and museums in to the main hall.

團隊成員訪問 Meet the team Franziska Weber 副機師 Franziska 跟我們分享她的工作點滴。 HK Express First officer, Franziska tells us about her work.

Female pilots are now gaining more recognition in the skies and now in Asia. What was your motivation in choosing this path and what are some of the challenges that you may have faced as a female first officer ? I was fascinated as a child by the possibility of navigating the skies with an aircraft and overcoming oceans and impassable land, long before I actually thought of choosing to become a pilot. Looking back, living in Alaska as an exchange student for one year was a key moment in deciding my career path. Planes were omnipresent - I watched them take-off and land daily, and they served any type of means in everyday life. That’s when I decided that one day I wanted to be a pilot. During the course of my training, the technical aspects and being part of a larger picture of aviation - the pilot just being one piece of the puzzle - became much more important and interesting. This further strengthened my desire of being a pilot. I never experienced any extra challenges just for being a woman during any of my training or later on the job. Nonetheless, I know that there are many out there and admire all the women who faced and helped to overcome discrimination and gender bias. I trust in HK Express as a forward striving company it is, to soon have a lot more female pilots joining the team. With your busy and often uncertain schedule, how do you plan for your alone time and what do you like to do when you’re not flying? As a pilot, sometimes it’s a bit difficult to have my own personal time on such an irregular schedule. For instance, it’s almost impossible for me to join any sports team or other activities on a regular basis. On the other hand, I get to enjoy the off-peak season when on holiday and being able to visit places without the busy weekend crowds. I love to be out hiking on the many trails Hong Kong has to offer. Standing at the top of a peak or a ridge after a tiring hike and relaxing on a beach thereafter is a rewarding experience for me and a way for me to get away from it all. What drew you to work at HK Express? I can’t deny that coming from Switzerland, Hong Kong always seemed ‘magical’ to me- being this special, exotic and internationalized place. Thus, moving to Hong Kong for work was something I’ve always wanted to do, as I also wanted to broaden my working experience outside of Europe. Getting the chance to fly for HK Express is an amazing opportunity that I came across, especially with its exotic destinations and the network that it offers. I look forward to the future with HK Express as it continues to grow and expand.

一開始您是因為什麼原因投身航空界?作為女性副 駕駛,您有面對什麼挑戰嗎? 小時候的我認為飛行可以創造許多可能性,能橫跨海洋和無 法通行的土地,所以我在很久以前就已經夢想成為一個出色 的飛行員。多年前,當我在阿拉斯加做交流生的時候,發現到 飛機基本上是無處不在,每天看着飛機升降,有種特別的感 覺,這亦是使我之後踏上飛行員之路的關鍵。 而在學習的過程中,面對各種的課程,令我明白到飛行員的重 要性和有趣之處,同時加深了我成為飛行員的決心。 後來,進入了正式訓練與真正從事這個職業時,意外地,女性 的身份並沒有為我帶來任何額外的挑戰。我真的打從心底欣 賞女性們,縱然有不少工種歧視女性,但她們仍然努力面對難 關。我期待在未來的航空發展中,HK Express 能吸納到更多 女性飛行員的加入。

作為一名飛行員,工作時間相當不穩定,您是如何 安排自己的私人時間呢?在不用飛行的時候,您最想 做什麼? 因為不規律的工作時間表,有時的確很難安排私人時間,例 如我不能參加一些需要定期練習的團體運動或其他活動。不 過,我很高興自己的假期並非在周末或公眾假期中,因為這 樣令我在外出時可以避開人潮。 我喜歡在香港的小徑遠足。遠足後站在山上眺望或在海灘上 休息是很值得的體驗,令我感覺可以拋開一切,非常放鬆。

是什麼因素令您選擇在HK Express工作? 對於來自瑞士的我而言,香港是一個神奇的地方,這裏非常 國 際 化而且 充滿 異國風情。我 一向都 希望在香港工作,因 為我想把工作經驗擴展至歐洲以外的地方,因此選擇了 HK Express。能夠在這裏工作是很難得的機會,尤其是HK Express 提供多元化的航點和網絡。而我十分期待公司未來的發展, 期待能與公司共同成長。

HK Express cares about our Guests’ health, safe and comfort onboard Safety first • Please read the safety instruction card in the back of each seat and pay special attention to our cabin crew during the safety demonstration at the beginning of each flight. • We value the comfort and safety of each of our Guests, including those with infants. All infants must be seated on the lap of an adult for the duration of the flight unless an additional seat has been purchased. Please be advised that your infant must however be strapped onto the adult’s lap with the infant seatbelt during takeoff and landing, and at any other time as instructed by the crew. • Laptops, Tablet and AV equipment must be switched off when the seatbelt sign is on. Guests are required not to use remote control or Bluetooth devices as they can interfere with the aircraft’s communications and navigation systems. • Loose items such as handbags or laptops must be stored underneath the seat in front or in the overhead lockers during take-off and landing.

No smoking • All HK Express flights are non-smoking. Please note that it is a criminal offence to smoke in any part of the aircraft. Your health & comfort • Try to walk around the cabin from time to time during your flight to encourage blood circulation, avoiding fatigue and muscle stiffness. • We would also recommend some simple stretching exercises every hour such as flexing your toes and raising your knees gently towards your chest. These exercises can potentially reduce the risks of blood clots in the legs, or deep vein thrombosis (DVT). • If you are prone to poor leg circulation, wearing specially designed flight socks or compression stockings can be extremely beneficial. • We recommend that our Guests try to minimise caffeine and alcohol consumption onboard to prevent health problems such as headaches, bloating and dehydration. Drinking water and fruit juices are the best options to keep your body suitably hydrated.
