Nine Wonders of New Zealand
“With natural splendours that include stunning marine wildlife and geothermal springs, to culinary adventures taking in cutting-edge restaurants and tours of award-winning vineyards, New Zealand is a country that knows how to amaze the senses,” the Guardian reports.
- Auckland: There’s no shortage of places to eat in the City of Sails. “From experimental, avant-garde restaurants to staple seafood at the marina”, there’s something for everybody, according to the article.
- New Zealand Wine: New Zealand is the place to be if you love wine. The Marlborough region on the South Island is known for its crisp whites. A cycling tour of the vineyards is the best way to see the vineyards.
- Napier: After an earthquake in 1931 Napier was rebuilt in a distinct art deco architectural style, which the city is known for today.
- Coffee: Wellington’s coffee shops are the best place to try a cup of New Zealand’s outstanding coffee.
- Christchurch’s Food Scene: The food scene in the garden city “is also worth investigating,” according to the article. “Grab some street food from a food truck, before trying something traditional: punting down the pretty Avon river.”
- Geography and Wildlife: New Zealand is known all over the world for its incredible landscapes.
- Queenstown’s Wild Hikes: There are plenty of great hikes around Queenstown and in winter it’s a great place to ski, according to the article.
