Don't miss the sky tower, you will enjoy that experience a lot!

People is too peaceful, I know that is now bad but being from Argentina I need more action

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    A good place to have a nice party, I don't know if it was because I didn't search that good or because people in New Zealand is too bored.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    No

  • How was the food?

    We ate our dinner at Sri Penang, it is a malaysian restaurant and the food was delicious but if you're backpacking double-check the prices because it is not a very cheap restaurant

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    If you're coming from Latin America save a little more money because even though New Zealand is not considered an astronomically expensive country it is not cheap for us coming from countries with cheaper prices

  • Packing tips?

    The basics and a good camera, you will see a lot of stuff that you're not used to see

  • Transportation Tips?

    Transportation is very nice, I cannot give an exact idea because we used my friend's car

  • Any surprises?

    How clean is the water

  • Booking details?

    I always plan my own trips but I use the apps that offer me the best prices

Lodging

  • i stayed at the hostel "surf N's Snow" which in my opinion was too basic based on my expectations as well as the experiences I had in peru but it was very clean which is something I really appreciate

  • Hotel Waterloo & Backpackers a simple hostel located 1 km away from the city center where I paid around US$12 per night
