Visit New Zealand
New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses – that of the North Island, or Te Ika-a-Māui, and the South Island, or Te Waipounamu – and numerous smaller islands.
New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity of animal, fungal and plant life. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.
There a lot of reasons why you should visit New Zealand and here are some of them
- The Incredibly Diverse and Unspoilt Scenery.
- Very friendly locals.
- Outdoor Adventures such as surfing, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, tramping, sailing, swimming at the beach, parachuting, horse riding, caving – all within a one hundred mile radius. And don't forget to try the bungee jump, invented and made famous right here.
- The Unique Wildlife of New Zealand split from the large land mass joining Australia and Antarctica about 85 million years ago, resulting in bird and plant species that are found nowhere else. Forests contain an abundance of interesting plant life from the towering ancient kauri trees to fronds of nikau palms. You might even see a kiwi– a small, flightless bird that has become the national symbol.
- The Ease of Travel with a great road network
- The Local Culture
- Climate in New Zealand is without extremes of hot or cold. From the north (warmest) to the south (coldest), average daytime temperatures range from 12 to 25 °C (54 to 76 °F). The long warm summers are ideal for spending at one of the country's many great beaches.
- It is very safe here. You're very unlikely to experience crime in New Zealand. Even for solo women travellers, safety is not an issue. In fact New Zealand is one of only two countries in the world which doesn't have snakes (the other is Ireland).
