What cities in New Zealand are best to stay in?

Although New Zealand has great cities to call home, coastal cities provide the idyllic setup for those looking to stay around for a while. You may choose Auckland for its lovely harbors, vastness, and proximity to numerous volcanic cones. Alternatively, you may stay at Christchurch, Queenstown, Wellington, or New Plymouth. Most of these cities boast a well-established transport network with efficient means of transport such as buses, trains and private or rental cars. A city like Wellington makes it easy for you to get around since it features a walkable, compact city center from its outer suburbs. Top New Zealand hotels include Kimi Ora Eco Resort, Sudima Christchurch City, and Rainforest Retreat. You can also find cheap hotels in New Zealand, especially if you choose to stay in the outskirts of the major cities like Dunedin, Nelson, and Napier.

What are the best things to do in New Zealand?

Dubbed as a top adventure city in New Zealand, Queensland welcomes you into the world of skiing, white water rafting, and bungee jumping. You can also witness the breathtaking sight of this city while aboard a gondola on your way to Bob’s Peak. Keep in mind that all these are paid attractions, so it’s advisable to change your currency into the local one for easy transactions. Waiheke Island is another popular attraction thanks to its countless tropical paradise of sandy beaches and vineyards, which are available free of charge. Indoor attractions in New Zealand include the panoramic view at the Sky Tower, a tour of the Art Gallery, and the War Memorial Museum in Auckland. Nasery Indoor Curling Rink, Dunedin Ice Stadium, and Queenstown Ice Arena offer endless indoor ice-skating opportunities in summer at a small fee.
