內容簡介

探索世界奇觀旅遊指南書,感受另類旅遊,發現全球700處最令人驚奇及震撼的新世界

是時候該跳出框架,跟著旅遊指標Atlas Obscura的腳步,一同發掘世界上最怪奇及令人探為觀止的新世界吧!紐西蘭炫目的螢火蟲洞穴,南非最巨大的猴麵包樹,大到足以容納15人的酒吧;發現難忘的特色建築,就從印度的王后階梯井開始;還有匪夷所思的奇聞軼事,例如西班牙跳嬰節、美國維吉尼亞州的石板琴、土庫曼斯坦的地獄之門、孟加拉的船舶墓地、義大利的人骨教堂、英國德文郡以水蛭來做天氣預報等。每一頁圖文都將帶給你永生難忘的旅遊回憶,詳實的文字敘述及超過百張圖片,搭配簡易明瞭的圖表及地圖,趕快更新你的旅遊清單,勇敢踏入全新的世界。 

It's time to get off the beaten path. Inspiring equal parts wonder and wanderlust, Atlas Obscura celebrates over 700 of the strangest and most curious places in the world.

Talk about a bucket list: here are natural wonders—the dazzling glowworm caves in New Zealand, or a baobob tree in South Africa that's so large it has a pub inside where 15 people can drink comfortably. Architectural marvels, including the M.C. Escher-like stepwells in India. Mind-boggling events, like the Baby Jumping Festival in Spain, where men dressed as devils literally vault over rows of squirming infants. Not to mention the Great Stalacpipe Organ in Virginia, Turkmenistan's 40-year hole of fire called the Gates of Hell, a graveyard for decommissioned ships on the coast of Bangladesh, eccentric bone museums in Italy, or a weather-forecasting invention that was powered by leeches, still on display in Devon, England.

Created by Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras and Ella Morton, ATLAS OBSCURA revels in the weird, the unexpected, the overlooked, the hidden and the mysterious. Every page expands our sense of how strange and marvelous the world really is. And with its compelling descriptions, hundreds of photographs, surprising charts, maps for every region of the world, it is a book to enter anywhere, and will be as appealing to the armchair traveler as the die-hard adventurer.

Anyone can be a tourist. ATLAS OBSCURA is for the explorer.
