参考词汇
far     distant     remote    
都含“远的”意思。

(1)

far 通常只指“空间上的远距离”, 只有在“How far?”这句问话中, 才可指远距离或近距离, 间或也用以指时间上的距离, 如:
It's far away from here.
离这很远。

(2)

distant指 “ 远隔的”, 可表示时间、空间的远距离, 指时间时距离可大可小, 但当指极大的距离(如太阳与地球的距离)时, 则用distant,不用far; distant还可指疏远的血统关系, 如:
He is a distant ciusin of mine.
他是我的远房堂兄。

(3)

remote “遥远的”, 含有 “不易到达的”意思, 如:
a town remote from the sea
远离海边的城镇。
close     near
