New Zealand: Best of South Island

“It was a dream come true,” writes Lynette Tan in a post about her 3-week trip around the South Island of New Zealand.

“New Zealand is an exceptional place to travel to for nature lovers. One of the greatest things about a road trip here is that you get to see a wide variety of landscapes in a single country – forests, mountains, glaciers, desert-like dryness and peaceful lakes.”

Her highlights of her trip around New Zealand’s South Island are…

  1. Punaikaiki Pancake Rocks
  2. Hooker Valley Tracks at Mount Cook/Aoraki
  3. Thundercreek Falls and Blue Pools on the Haast Pass
  4. Fox Glacier Heli Hik
  5. Milford Sound Cruise
  6. Skyline Gondola in Queenstown

Tan also recommends eating at Queenstown’s Ferg Burger, trying a lot of New Zealand Café Food as well as traditional New Zealand Whitebait Fritters and visiting some of the many vineyards.
