Samui Phuket Bali, Long Beach Palau Tahiti, Maldives Great Barrier Reef… Have you heard of "the paradise on earth"?
However, today I am not going to introduce to you the destinations that are all Chinese. The protagonist of this promotion is 99% of the ‘New Caledonia’ that Chinese people don’t know – sounds strange and strange. Do not blame everyone, this name I have not remembered how to read in the sixth time.
However, I heard that the picture memory will be easier, so before the official opening, use a few pictures to bring everyone into this niche destination –
It’s not too much to say a niche. Compared to Japan and Thailand, which attracts millions of Chinese tourists every year, there are hundreds of Chinese talents who come to Singapore every year.
So, who is New Caledonia in New Caledonia? – "The New South Pacific Island" and "the island closest to heaven" are her titles. After the 18th century British navigator James Cook came, I felt that it was very similar to Scotland, so she named her "New Scotland", and Caledonia is the name of the old Scottish Latin, the name of New Caledonia.
Also, where is New Caledonia? Looking at this beautiful lagoon, you should be able to guess that one of the Pacific Islands has not ran!
In fact, she is a French island between Australia and New Zealand, but in addition to being the largest lagoon in the world, she also has mangroves compared to Tahiti, Fiji, Palau, etc., also in the South Pacific. More terrain, such as tropical rain forests and trailing beaches.
When the savvy Frenchman expanded his territory overseas, he circled this vanilla and was a great place for a holiday. Hundreds of years of colonial history have made the new Kazakh romantic and lazy, while the local enthusiasm of the Kanak culture is the humanistic base.
By convention, the tips and tips are placed at the end.
Now, please enjoy the charm of Xinka.
To Xinka, I have to mention Songdo. Songdo, named after the island's straight and lush pine forest, is the southernmost island in the New Kay Islands.
From Noumea to Songdo, you need to take a small free-sitting small plane to another small airport. Because the aircraft has a very strict baggage allowance, you can check 12KG and carry 5KG. It is best to streamline your belongings before departure. fully prepared.
Anyway, just sit down and sit on the small plane as far as possible to sit by the window seat. The plane will not fly very high for half an hour. The blue and layered seascape along the way allows me to take pictures with my eyes and camera all the time.
New Caledonia has the largest lagoon in the world and the second longest in the world. The lagoon surrounds the entire island of Sinka and is a very important natural heritage of the world.
Songda Island really has its own style when a small plane landed in a dense pine forest.
Island hop day trip
Six of us reported a small group in Songdo, and took a small boat to start a day trip to Turtle Island + Borås Island.
Because the sea water is really very bright and clear, even if it is very deep, I can almost see it at the end. I saw a lot of big turtles on the sea road on the island. I swam by our boat, and it was very big and it was red! Forgive me for restraining my own screams and not taking pictures of them…
Turtle IslandThe white sand is very thin and very soft, plus blue sky and white clouds and tiffany color sea water, even if you don't come to snorkel, the concave shape is very good!
The second stop of the island jump came to the same sea area is very beautifulBorosSurprise (xia) found that there is a lunch here waiting for us.
The reason why I personally prefer Borås is that in addition to the variety of water activities, you can also experience the lifestyle of the Aboriginal tribe here, how to use the original method to open the coconut, drink the coconut juice, Turn the coconut into a seasoning that can be served.
Turtles are a very common symbol in Xinka, and symbolic portraits of turtles can be seen in various places.
The coconut that has been picked out is boiled in white rice and then dripped a few drops of coconut oil. It is really fragrant to the nose to come out! I can't help but touch the sweet temptation of the new kami rice. If I have already eaten it all, I can't stop it.
However, from the sister (who forgot to ask the name), we taught us to finish the coconut, suddenly sit on the ground and play with the coconut leaves on the hands. I have a bad feeling.
It turns out that everyone really wants to make a plate for themselves! Step by step, my sister patiently taught us how to make a piece of coconut tree leaves into a sturdy and beautiful lunch, and people who can't learn will not have lunch. I have to say that in the forest facing the sea, I feel good about eating and drinking myself!
When I came to the French island, of course, the snails were eaten. The snails here are bigger and fresher than I have ever eaten, and the sauces are very fragrant. After the entrance, the snails are delicious and have a special aroma of sauces. I didn’t expect to eat them under such conditions. The most natural taste!
After eating the snail meat, don't forget to pour the snail's soup into the rice or the bread. The flavor of the fresh fragrance will definitely make you feel good.
Natural swimming pool
Just beside the Le Méridien Songdo, we are only a 20-minute walk to the natural pool. In the process of wading in the past, we passed a restaurant Le Kou-Gny, and by the way, the lunch was also solved.
Sunshine hides in the shade of the trees, stepping on the soft white sand at the foot, blowing the sea breeze and looking at the pine forest in the distance. The location and environment of this restaurant is absolutely perfect. Look at the tree full of lights, dinner at night should be very romantic.
When I finished the food, I ran to take a few photos with the leaves, and came back and found a cute cat on the beach stepping on our slippers.
The "reggae" waiter filled his whole body with a play, not only the dressing time is exaggerated, the whole process of ordering is also very funny, the recommended juice is very delicious! Overall, this restaurant experience is great, it is worth slipping out of Amy, stealing an afternoon time to chat and chat!
The real name of the dessert is praised! Sweet but not greasy, I have nothing left to eat. Originally, Xinka had no great expectation for this kind of island French meal. I felt that the local people might not pay much attention to food because of other reasons such as materials. I didn’t expect it to be very consistent with my Chinese stomach. I didn’t fit at all!
It seems that I have been smashed by food…
The natural pool is actually the end of a naturally formed river, and the land on both sides encloses the end of the river into a pool. The water that does not flow in this pool is so clear and agile, and there are all kinds of fish swimming in the water, which is the most wonderful place.
In fact, this is not a very well-known attraction. It is usually necessary to take the waterway + land in the past, and there are signs on the road to remind the natural pool to help the traveler.
It’s only after I found out that it’s too beautiful! This is not a sea area, but a "pond". The fish in the water are dense and dense, and they are "accompanying" in groups.
Here you can swim, snorkel, sunbathe, no tickets, no dressing room, bring your own bath towels and change clothes.邂逅 Such an all-natural holiday preferred place, I really want to stay here for a lifetime~
Some places are quite deep, and there are many coral reefs. Children need to be closely guarded by adults.
After returning to Noumea from Songdo, we spent a whole day strolling around a "five-star" island. Looking from afar, a white lighthouse stands straight, that is, Lighthouse Island.
The reason why I gave the Lighthouse Island five stars is because she is really suitable for Chinese travel habits.
The ferry, which takes about 40 minutes from Noumea, arrives. After going to the island, you will get a map with the time and place of each event. The activities on the island are very rich. There are glass-bottom boats to go out to see the sea turtles and fish. There are also local Kana song and dance performances and lighthouses for the whole family, as well as snorkeling, surfing and single kayaking with animals. In short, no matter who you are, you can find a suitable project here, it will not be boring all day.
Although I know that the lighthouse benefits from its height, it can be seen from far away, but when I climbed up, I realized that it was a real physical activity. The 274-story step is rotated upwards, and it is necessary to stop and rest several times in the middle to prevent dizziness.
Looking up at this stair structure, it is also beautiful.
At the top of the tower, it is the essence of this physical activity – finally my eyes also have my drone vision! Standing 360 degrees overlooking the New Kay Lagoon, you can see every blue color carefully: blue, blue, deep blue, light blue, green blue… After reading, at least The cure is weak.
After boarding the lighthouse on the island, you can go out to the sea to see the fish and turtles. I personally like this part too. Although it is not far away, the boat will open to the densely populated sea of fish and turtles. Visitors can use the bait to pour into the sea along the passage of the ship, and they can see the fish gather in the glass. The bottom of the boat.
Look, this black one is the turtle!
The turtle seems to be quite small, and once it is discovered, it will sneak into the bottom of the water. So for the sake of other people on board, don't scream loudly after the turtles are found, lest the turtles be scared away.
It is said that you can also go snorkeling and swim with the turtles, but unless the marine creatures swim by yourself, you must not touch them or take them over to take pictures.
After the glass bottom boat came back to the sea, it was just the lunch. The lunch here is buffet style, Thai seafood Tom Yum Kung, Italian basil pasta, vegetarian fruit, grilled shrimp barbecue, all have everything, and finally cake ice cream, but also eat pretty cool, surprises and surprises.
At the time of the meal, there was a band of national musical instruments playing live. When people almost finished eating, they began to perform dances.
The South Pacific is still dominated by belly dance. Don't look at some dancers who have a lot of flesh in their waists. When the music is together, it will be like an electric motor. If I take a video, I will definitely have a late note. I really don't have 2 Play at double speed.
They will also randomly select the "fancy" men sitting underneath, let them take off their shirts, wear drafting skirts, and dance with them. The picture is a bit spicy, hahahaha but really funny. Sometimes girls are invited, and bold can also raise their hands.
After eating and drinking, the afternoon is very leisurely. There is also a demonstration course to teach you how to climb a tree to pick a coconut, or you can take a surfboard to the beach to surf, or snorkel in the water, or you can lie in the dark. ↓
Water sports equipment is available on the island and can be rented for free. You are willing to bring it yourself.
Only after playing for an hour of water, the whole person has been black for a long time… The sunshine in the South Pacific winter is not to be underestimated.
The name seems to be really magical. Starting from the airport check-in, every time when I said that I was going to Noumea, people always showed an expression of envy.
Noumea is the capital of New Caledonia. Although it is an overseas territory of France, Xinka also has its own government and president.
During World War II, Noumea served as the headquarters of the US South Pacific Army. So the US military has done a lot of infrastructure construction here, and now you can see the American flag or related monuments from time to time. The small airport that flew to Songdo was formerly the military airport of the US military.
The population of Nouméa accounts for two-thirds of the entire New Zealand, but here still feels that life is very leisurely and comfortable, not crowded and not in a hurry.
So when I woke up, we went out and strolled around. The morning market is a good place to learn about the entry point of Noumea. It sells vegetables and fruits, fresh fish, and sells crafts and souvenirs. You can see that it sells 30 yuan a pound of lettuce and can also see local characteristics. The fruit species and shrimps and crabs are full of tables.
There are also many handicrafts and creative works, all of which are handmade by the owner himself. Jewelry and bags are worth a while. I like to do this kind of "Window Shopping", just like watching a small museum, knowing what is produced locally, what is popular, what is a popular totem, and thus understanding culture and history.
Very real and very smoky, don't want tickets.
Linked to the market, the Fortress, the church and the second-hand market coconut market strolled around, making the day of the original Noumea.
The luncheon came to Creperie Le Rocher, a superb restaurant with a special name for their crepes. In fact, I didn't quite know what crepe was before I ate it, but after eating it, I can remember this name for a long time.
Recommend the crepes of duck meat, the cake is crispy and meaty. Salmon and shrimp are also delicious. Desserts must be made with coconut ice cream and chocolate sauce. This is called perfection.
The whale-watching mentality is to be a Buddhist system, and it is necessary to make an invisible plan before departure.
In order to whale watching, we got up at 6 in the morning and it was less than 8 o'clock when we boarded the ship. After drifting for 10 hours at sea, luck was not good enough, even the dolphins did not see it. The peak season for whale watching is from June to October, and it is not easy to encounter whales in mid-September.
The boat is really shaking. If you don't look at the distance all the time, keep your eyes and brain in a unified state, you will soon want to vomit. However, the ship did not actually go far, just in the lagoon where we can see the main island of Noumea, find the place where the whales often appear.
I still like this captain quite much. He is calm and enthusiastic, giving us a detailed explanation of the survival guide on board, even if the supplies on the ship are enough for us to live for more than 20 days. It also tells us how to identify different kinds of whales, the living habits of each type of whale, etc. It is good to see whales and come to the listening class.
The deputy captain was responsible for mastering the direction of the sail and controlling the voyage. After the ship was transferred to the automatic gear, he and the captain's meal were also started in the cabin. Oh, we have to prepare ourselves, there is no lunch for everyone to eat.
When he used the garlic onion to blast the pot, I seemed to see everyone's nose moving.
But at first glance, in fact, their lunch is also very simple, so many vegetables, cheese, eggs, so much.
Addicts can also smoke on the boat, and the cigarette butts are packed into glass bottles.
I didn’t see the whale until the sun went down, and my heart would still be lost. But travel is like this, there is nothing that should be prepared for you, always ready to meet the unknown, is it more interesting?
Braye is a city that is more north than Noumea. The temperament is not the same as the South.
Bray's little plane, come to Xinka must sit! Promise me, don't come along!
It’s true that many places can experience it by taking a small plane tour. But is it worthwhile to have only a small plane that you and the pilot are both, and you can also open your own hand?
That's right, Braye's small plane is so sad! When you fly to the height of 100 meters, the following is the blue glare, the beautiful rupture of the lagoon, the pilot directly gives you the control of the aircraft, through the headphones you can also communicate with the companions on another plane… How to listen Listening is like a perfect marriage proposal!
Seeing that this is more than 20 different blue scenery, I really can't speak, and suddenly my heart is hot, and I shed tears of excitement. How is this world so beautiful!
The small plane tour is really the moment when I think the whole journey is the highest light. It is the island closest to heaven! Even after a few years, I don't remember what the new car is like, I still remember the excitement in the sky.
The captain around me reminded me that the following small spires are not the Sheraton Villa we live in in Braye! ↓
You can also take a small plane to visit the heart-shaped Voh mangroves, but because we are a little far from our route, and there is no CP in our group that needs to be blessed by love, there is no way to look around. Now it has become a "net red", frequently on the magazine and global travel list.
There are a lot of French people playing triathlon here. In the past two years, Xinka has also built many roads suitable for cycling, and it is very suitable for swimming in the water. It is gradually becoming a paradise for more and more sports lovers. ↓
Ending the trip on the waterfront, we went to a ranch and ate at the owner's house on the ranch. At first we thought we would milk and shovel what we were doing, but the actual situation was not so "tasteful."
The Nessadiou Farm is very, very large. We are sitting in the car of their home to visit. There are many horses, cows, sheep, chickens and ducks along the way. Later, I realized that the male owner of the ranch was a local policeman. There was a big shotgun at home. I actually took the gun out and let us take a photo. This is also very big!
There are several hills in their homes, and you can see the sea level from a height. The looming blue line, the slut is sexy, haha.
The owner also took the ducklings that had not been born for a long time out of the cage for me to hold. The little life was always screaming in my hand, and the furry feel was so cute!
Then take a self-portrait with a black sheep that has been sawn off the corner but is super-loving, and it is very interesting to get along with simple animals. Haha!
It was called "Cowboy Lunch" on the lunch of the day. The part of the main meat was eaten by the eager one. I forgot to take it, but just look at the weight of this dessert… The day of the cowboy should be really tired!
In love with the local Manta beer, Mai Xiangli has a lemonade flavor, fresh and fresh. ↓
Blue Mountain National Park
Came to the Great South of New Delhi. From stepping on this red land, I began to express my feelings: This national park is really like Australia. It is said that 35 million years ago, it was the same continent as Australia.
Although there are red land in Australia, there is more rainforest than Australia. The red land contains a lot of metal elements, it should be difficult to grow the vegetation, but this land has been difficult to grow out of the rainforest that has evolved for tens of millions of years and successfully adapted to the red clay!
Xinka has many unique species in the world, and some have been tempted on the verge of extinction.
What do Xinkar people eat when they are on holiday? They used to eat pigeons and drink bat soup… until other poultry entered the island and multiplied. Therefore, the eco-system of Xinka is particularly vulnerable, so it is not difficult to understand why the customs has tightened the baggage of inbound tourists.
I met a big, full-feeling New Kay bird – a flying duck (Kagu). Yes, he is not too lazy to fly, he really can't fly, he just walks. And only one egg a year, is it because of the low reproduction rate for the national bird?
In order to protect the environment, this park does not allow self-driving vehicles to enter. It can only be reported to the park for guided tours, cycling or hiking, and horse riding is also possible. Park tickets are 5 euros for one person.
Later, we also put on a bathing suit and experienced a very interesting kayaking project, sliding in the kaori tree that has been growing for thousands of years.
It is said that these dead woods have no life, but they are inserted in the water, they are not old or dry, and they are still strong and tough for thousands of years.
There is no one here. The valley echoes the laughter of several of us. If we don't talk, the whole lake is very calm. Close your eyes, the soul must be hooked out of the kind of calm. This feeling is amazing.
Speaking of kayaking, we also experienced a sail boat with an outrigger bracket in Wupi Bay.
There are still some dogs in the boat where they are playing with water.
The scenery is beautiful, the sun is very dry, there is no sunshade.
This time we have also booked a great wine restaurant Le Chai De I‘Hippodrome. The owner of the store is a very cute Japanese girl. She has a license in Bordeaux, France. I personally came to give us a class for dinner.
The shop is mainly made of Bordeaux, but not a bottle of wine, if you want to drink, they will pour out a cup from the barrel for you to drink. Moreover, their wine barrels insist on the use of 900 euros of oak barrels imported from France, and in order to ensure the fragrance of the oak, only 4 times per barrel.
After roughly using PPT to tell us some basic knowledge of red wine, the proprietress began to pour us wine. We have three kinds of cheeses with different tastes and grades, and we have 3 kinds of wines, so it is so happy to be in class!
Personally think that this dinner is quite interesting, and it is a worthwhile dinner for red wine. You can also spend three days here to take a class, and the boss can also give you an authoritative level certificate.
The dinner restaurant on the day after the whale watching is also recommended: the MV Lounge in Noumea. A place where you mainly drink cocktails and eat tapas, there are not many hard dishes, there will be many local acrobatics song and dance performances, music alcohol, lighting atmosphere are in place. ↓
New wine shop
The most satisfying thing about the whole trip is the Sheraton of Braye, the full name of Sheraton Deva New Caledonia Golf & Spa Resort. This is the kind of resort that is seen in a small plane and is not convenient for entering and leaving a small villa.
Staying in a 60-square-foot wooden house, you will feel that the whole person is integrated into the natural environment. Pushing open the balcony door is the forest, and you can lie on the sofa bed to watch the stars at night.
The space in the room is very large, and a family of three lives more than enough.
Am I hungry? The dessert is also being swept away by me. The cookie puffs are so delicious!
I have a buffet here for dinner, and I haven’t eaten anywhere else. However, the category is very rich. As a Cantonese, I fill myself with seafood without a mission.
Swimming pools, golf courses, spas, this Sheraton resort, leisure time is still very easy to send.
This is a golf driving range. Without a coach, guests can come and practice on their own.
Then I also mentioned Matsushima Amy, who had not had time to live. Because our trip in Songdo was arranged quite late, I went out early every morning and didn't have time to appreciate this hotel. ↓
Come to Songdo to live here, close to the natural pool. The room is spacious and bright, the bathtub leads to the bedroom, and the space is more fun.
In the morning, I like to steal 10 minutes to sit quietly here, and raise my body. ↓
In fact, Matsushima Amy is built on the coastline. If you don't want to go around for a day trip, it is very recommended to play on the beachside of the hotel. The sand is very fine and white, you can also snorkel and swim, or take two steps to the natural pool. It is also very convenient.
You should also praise the breakfast!
The dinner level is also good. I saw a lot of Japanese couples at dinner, and it is estimated that everyone is running for honeymoon.
Xinka is still quite worthy of attention on the trip.
visa: Chinese passport to Xinka, you can use two kinds of visas. First, apply directly to the visa of the overseas province of France. The procedure is similar to the application for the Schengen visa, but additional forms are required. Second, the Schengen visa has been used, and the visa needs to be valid for 6 months to 5 years. Those who are only valid for 1-3 months are not OK.
Big traffic: There is no direct flight from China to Xinka. There are probably two places to choose. First, I will transfer to Tokyo and Osaka in Japan. If the flight is separated for a long time, I need to apply for a Japanese visa to enter Japan. Second, I will transfer to Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane in Australia. If the time is not connected or the transit time is too long. Need to hold an Australian visa.
Call for a direct flight here! !
AirCalinIt was the airline of the local government of Xinka. I didn't expect much from the beginning. As a result, the hardware and software were very pleasant! Economy class hardware and services can be said to be about the same level as Cathay. The aircraft is very new, the entertainment screen and movie reserve are also many, the crew can speak three languages: French, English and Japanese, and the service is very good.
communication: At the Noumea Atoto International Airport, there is a place to rent WiFi. I started to worry about losing one week. I didn't expect this WiFi signal to be very stable. Just like I didn't go abroad, I could support 4 devices to surf at the same time.
Local project:At present, New Caledonia has not fully developed the Chinese market. There are few channels for tourists to order the new Kagota fragmentation trips, such as going to the ranch, experiencing small planes, and a day trip to Lighthouse Island. However, if you have a rich experience in free travel, it is ok to arrange the translation software to the local area: please book the hotel to help you book, or find a local travel agency to arrange a day trip. However, if you want to have a good time, it is best to find a travel agency to arrange a daily trip in the country, and then start on your own: regular tour groups can be ordered from Caesar, China Youth Travel, etc.; Xiaobang Holiday, Temei Travel, Hongyi Yiyou, Shanghai Mint Holidays can be ordered for high-end customized projects.
Language:The official language of Xinka is French. English is not very popular. To be free and free, you may need to speak some French or use translation software. Since the Japanese have become the main tourist exporting country in the past 10 years, there are many Japanese restaurants in the area. Many places have Japanese signs, and some service staff can even speak Japanese fluently.
So, in the next decade, will the Chinese come to pick up?
Finally, leave a small egg: this yellow-black ring snake is very common in Xinka, if you want to save your life, see please stay away from them, very poisonous!
