The Changing Colours of New Zealand

New Zealand is one of the best and most beautiful countries to travel in the world. Not only is it breathtaking in its natural beauty but also had the friendliest people one can meet!!!

New Zealand is also a best place to do road trips. The landscape changes every 50 kilometers, roads are well maintained even in the most rural parts. There are abundant of coffee shops, cafes and ample places to stay anywhere on the island (you might want to do a little traveling in South Island before you can find a place to stay). 

New Zealand has a lot to offer: Hiking, camping, bird watching, whale watching, city trips, shopping, and adventure stuff (which include a freefall jump from 16500 feet!!).

Best time to travel: Warmest weather would be from November to April but it gets a lot busy during summer which is from December to February. This is the time when you can enjoy the best wine festivals, concerts and Christmas on a beach. For skiing enthusiasts June to August is the time to go.

Where to go: New Zealand is one of the farthest country one can travel. And since you are here try to go everywhere and anywhere!!! Try the big cities but don’t overstay there. Go to the rural part, hitchhike, or rent a car, travel with a local if you can and they can show you all the places which one cannot get on internet!!

How to get around: Getting around is very easy since the whole country is connected with roads. You can rent a car, take a bus, get on a organized tour and hitchhike (which is by far the most exciting way to travel!!).
