你要去哪?

在去 Le Francois 的路上你會經過一個小村莊,在那裡你可以找到新鮮的魚類、蝦、溫水龍蝦等。除此以外,你還會遇到友善的當地人呢。

1. What’s the first thing you’d do? 你會做的第一件事是什麼?

I will go the traditional market and buy some nice home-made food, buy a bottle of the nicest rum in the World (produced in Martinique) and go to a nice beach all day with my friends.

White sands, cocktails, music, blue water, fresh fruits and an exceptional atmosphere, welcome to Martinique.

我會到當地的傳統市集買一些好吃的道地食物,買一瓶世界級的萊姆酒(馬提尼克生產的),然後與朋友到一個美麗的沙灘享受。

潔白的沙、雞尾酒、音樂、藍色的海水、新鮮的水果與不可多得的氣氛,歡迎你來到馬提尼克。

2. Where would you stay other than home? 除了自己家以外,你會住哪?

For sure, I will rent a villa close to the beach in the Diamant or Les 3 Ilets. You are more independent and you feel like home!

我一定會在靠近 Diamant 或 Les 3 Ilets 的沙灘租一間別墅。這樣你才可以覺得自由與有一種在家的感覺。

3. Where would you meet your friends for a drink? 你常和朋友見面喝東西的地方在哪?

QG: very nice typical bar in the city center of Fort-de-France. Nice cocktails, not very expensive and the owner is my friend. The atmosphere is warm and everybody wants to enjoy cocktails such as local food.

Lili’s bar: located in one of the nicest hotel in Martinique, you have the feet in clear water, lounge music and nice cocktails.

You can also go to the “Village Creole” located in the 3-ilets or Chateau Gaillard where you can find many restaurants and bars.

QG:Fort-de-France市中心一間很不錯的酒吧。有好喝又不貴的雞尾酒(店主是我的朋友)。那裡的氣氛熱絡,雞尾酒就好像當地食物一樣,每個人都想要來一杯。

Lili’s Bar:坐落在馬提尼克最好的一間酒店裡。你可以把你的雙腳浸在水裡,邊喝杯雞尾酒邊享受那裡的音樂。

你也可以去位於 3-ilets 或 Chateau Gaillard 的 “Village Creole” 一 帶,那裡有很多餐廳與酒吧。

4. Where’s the best place for lunch? 吃午餐最棒的地方在哪?

This a very tough question because many restaurants serve nice food on the island. I will recommend you two typical restaurants, my favorites:

Yva chez Vava: nice local food in the Northern point of the Island, the city is called Grand-Riviere. A long way to go, trust me it worths it !

Chez Leger: on your way to Le Francois, a very small place in a village where you have fresh fishes, prawns, langoustes and you’ll meet there friendly local people.

這個問題相當難回答,因為這島上有太多好餐廳了。我推薦兩間典型、我最喜歡的餐廳給你:

Yua Chez Vava:位於島上北部叫做 Grand-Riviere 的城市。你可以在那裡找到美味的當地食物。雖然遠,可是請相信我,這一切都是值得的。

Chez Leger:在去 Le Francois 的路上你會經過一個小村莊,在那裡你可以找到新鮮的魚類、蝦、溫水龍蝦等。除此以外,你還會遇到友善的當地人呢。

5. And for dinner? 晚餐呢?

I will go to the same places for lunch and dinner, it depends what kind of food you are willing to eat. We have very nice western restaurant such as Le Belem (the hotel from the Lagoon Resort).

If you do want Italian restaurant, you can go to La Traviata in a nice and quiet area, Didier, and enjoy the food made by Mario.

If you are home sick, we do have plenty of Chinese restaurants and Thai restaurant located in the Orchids firm.

午餐或晚餐其實都可以在同樣的餐廳吃。看你自己喜歡什麼類的食物。你可以去一間非常棒的叫做 LeBelem(Lagoon Resort 酒店的附屬餐廳)西式餐廳。

如果你想吃意大利餐,那麼我推薦你去 La Traviata。這間餐廳在一個叫 Didier 的地區,非常寧靜。你可以在那裡享用廚師 Mario 煮的意大利食物。

如果你想念中國食物了,別擔心,這裡有很多中、泰餐廳。它們都座落在 Orchids Firm 地帶。

6. Where would you send a first-time visitor? 如有朋友到訪,你會帶他們到哪玩?

The Marche couvert de Fort-de-France (covered market), where you can enjoy nice home-made products and local handicraft.

They will then visit La Bibliotheque Schoelcher, nice architecture and piece of history in Martinique.

Of course I will send them to one of the nicest beach in the island – Les Salines !

The Marche couvert de Fort-de-France 的室內市集。你可以在那裡吃到許多道地的美食與當地的手工藝品。

參觀 La Bibliotheque Schoelcher(上圖)。一個非常富有歷史價值的美麗建築。

當然,你一定不可以錯過島上最美麗的沙灘 — Les Salines!

7. Any best-kept secret? 有哪些秘境嗎?

You have to come over and I will tell them all!

我不告訴你!你得要請自來到這裡我才會揭露這個秘密。

8. What should I avoid? 你會避免的事。

Don’t lay down all day on the sand without sun block, the sun is very strong in the Caribbean. Make sure you drink enough water and if you drive, be careful of speed cameras (they are everywhere). And of course, like in every city, please avoid walking in late night if you are not familiar with the area.

如果要日光浴的話,一定要塗防晒油,因為加勒比海地區的陽光是非常強烈的。喝足夠的水。這裡有很多超速相機,所以如果你駕車的話,一定要謹守時速限定。當然,就像每一個城市一樣,盡量避免在深夜的時候在你不熟悉的地區遊走。
