"Fair warning!" New Zealand Favorite Tip by unaS

New Zealand General: 375 reviews and 341 photos

Favorite thing: New Zealand is a paradise for nature lovers, for people that prefer a slower way of life, for anyone that appreciates nice people!

The country sucks you in and you don't want to leave.

Be Aware - you might be caught for life!!!!!!!

Fondest memory: The people I met were wonderful. Everyone was friendly. Shop keepers would go out of their way to be helpful. People with disabilities are within the mainstream, not hidden away.

The climate is mild and wonderful.
Everyone is aware of the environment and the need to preserve the native species of animals.
The mountains overwhelming and the sea marvelous. A wonderful, wonderful country!
The food is fresh. The veggies marvelous. The meat field grown without hormones or additives.

Best of all for the visitor, the NZ dollar is inexpensive! The hostels clean and cheap, available everywhere, the budget hotels ditto. Transportation is comparatively inexpensive and easy to use.

Not enough themes below for me :) I could choose a lot more, like:
Family Travel, Singles, Eco-tourism including rain forests, whale watching, bird watching, swim with the dolphins, photo safari, and lots more too. Also good for budget travel and backpackers,

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
