"Hot and Cold" New Zealand Packing List Tip by ahouse2003

New Zealand What to Pack: 53 reviews and 24 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Let me just say that I was completely unprepared for this trip when it came to clothing. I read that because of its location, New Zealand could go from hot to cold in 24 hours. I didn't really believe it, and since we were traveling during NZ's summer time, I packed cool clothing. It was cold and windy the entire time we were there, and if it had not been for my thin jacket I brought to wear on the plane, I would have frozen to death. I recommend you pack for all kinds of weather.
