Is Dunedin New Zealand’s Most Underrated City?

Despite its low profile, Dunedin has a quiet, understated cool,” writes Lilit Marcus in an article on CNN.  “As a university town, it is full of inexpensive eats, street art, craft beer and live music, not to mention cheery locals who are known to argue over who gets to stop and give you directions.” Marcus outlines some of the city’s must-do’s.
