Ghost Tourism

走!出發找鬼去!

2011年 10月27日

In England, everything is much older, so there have been many more reported cases of ghosts and paranormal activity. Recently, the city of York was named the most haunted city in England by the Ghost Research Foundation International. Officials in York are hoping to use this to promote tourism by doing ghost walks and other events. In Edinburgh, Scotland, there is a series of underground vaults that many people believe to be haunted. The Blair Street Vaults were built in one of the city's poorest areas, and many people died in the unclean conditions. These were caused by the water which leaked from the famous South Bridge above. Now, tourists can explore these underground vaults and see if they can feel the spirits for themselves. Ghost tourism is always an interesting experience no matter where in the world it may be.

 

在英國,所有事物的歷史都更為悠久,因此關於鬧鬼和靈異現象的案例在當地更是層出不窮。近來,約克市被國際鬼魂研究基金會評定為「全英國鬧鬼最兇的城市」。約克市的官員希望能藉由尋鬼漫步的行程和其他活動來促進當地的觀光發展。在蘇格蘭愛丁堡則有一系列被許多人認定會鬧鬼的地下墓室。布萊爾街墓穴興建於這座城市裡最貧困的地區之一,當中有不少人死於髒亂的環境之中。導致環境髒亂的原因就是從著名的南方大橋上所滲漏下來的水。如今遊客可以造訪這些地下墓室,看看自己是否能親身感受到這些鬼魂的存在。無論鬧鬼地區位於世界的哪一個角落,尋鬼之旅向來都是一種刺激有趣的體驗。
