Holiday, Vacation & Tour

 

New Zealand: Unique Nature Thrills

Some of the most novel Holiday, Vacation & Tour experiences in the world may be found in New Zealand. All things are possible in this country so well-endowed by Nature. The only limitation may be your time. New Zealand can easily fill up Holiday, Vacation & Tours that last for several months and you will not even find yourself doing the same thing twice during that period. But for those on limited time, you will have to give serious thought in planning your holiday to get the most out of your trip.

Some of the most novel Holiday, Vacation & Tour experiences in the world may be found in New Zealand. All things are possible in this country so well-endowed by Nature. The only limitation may be your time. New Zealand can easily fill up Holiday, Vacation & Tours that last for several months and you will not even find yourself doing the same thing twice during that period. But for those on limited time, you will have to give serious thought in planning your holiday to get the most out of your trip.

A Holiday, Vacation & Tour in New Zealand means traveling to the other end of the earth so you should make the most of it. New Zealand is everything you have heard about, and many things more besides. New Zealand means unspoiled nature from volcanoes to glaciers, stunning scenery, with just the right touch of interesting history.

Special Treats

A unique New Zealand tourist treat is cave tubing in the dark Ruakuri Caves. It starts innocuously enough, with a rubber tire’s inflated inner tube to serve as your flotation device. Everything changes afterwards as you ride through roaring rapids, slip through tight crevices, and plummet down waterfalls while the limestone walls are bathed in the eerie light produced by innumerable glowworms. The thrilling ride is also known as black-water rafting and (so far) can be enjoyed only in New Zealand.

For those who have secretly longed to be a race-car driver, here is a way to indulge that dream. You can join New Zealand’s Kiwi Car Rally, one of the most popular sports events. You will compete against professional drivers. Not immediately, though, because you undergo one week’s training guided by a coach. After training, you don safety gear, seated in a real race car, and assigned a team manager. Then, you start racing in a one- or two-day endurance even over flat and hilly roads covered with snow, mud and gravel.

What else to do

New Zealand has two main islands, North Island and South Island. It is difficult to explore the best of both islands if you spend less than a month in the country. You would be better off focusing on one island (the South offers more variety) or a particular region, if you have limited time. The best regions to see are Rotorua, Taupo and Ruapehu in the North Island, and Otago, Fiordland and Nelson/Marlborough in the South Island.

On the North Island, you can visit the Bay of Islands for dolphin-watching. Visit Rotorua for two days to take in volcanic scenery or varied marine life in the Bay of Plenty, then head on to Taupo, making sure to drop by the Wai-o-tapu Thermal Reserve along the road. You should not miss Huka Falls and a dip in the hot pool of the plentiful thermal resorts. You can take a cruise on Lake Taupo or go to the Waitomo Caves for dark-water rafting. There is also the Tongariro Crossing to negotiate, if you are fit enough for a full day walk. The major cities in the North Island are Wellington, and the capital, Auckland.

On the South Island, take a trip out to the Marlborough Sounds for more dolphin-watching or kayaking. There are several vineyards you can visit. At Nelson, you can make your way to the Abel Tasman National Park or the Nelson Lakes National Park, near Franz Josef on the west coast. In Franz Josef, you can try the glacier walk or take a look at scenic Mount Cook. If you proceed to Wanaka, you can go exploring canyons or do some breath-taking skydiving. At Queenstown, you may consider the Shotover Jet or take a plunge on the bungee. You should spend a day in Christchurch, the biggest city on the South Island, before you head back to Auckland for your flight out.

Best time to go

The warm months in New Zealand are between November and April, and this is the best time for outdoor trips. If you want to avoid crowds – not only other tourists but also local folks– try not to visit key sites from mid-December to early February. However, these months are also filled with wine festivals, concerts, and sports events, so you could miss out on some beautiful cultural sights.

The slightly cooler transition months of October/November and April/May may be the best times to visit. Winter is June to August, so if you prefer winter activities, take these months for skiing.

Planning your trip

Three weeks is the usual “quick trip” people spend in New Zealand. The official websites of major towns and cities give you plenty of information to make good plans, but don’t try to fit too many places and things into a short time. For clothes, you can pack as little as possible; in this country, anything casual is fine.

You’ll need some warm clothes if you go hiking, and be sure to have a waterproof jacket or raincoat as the weather can change very quickly. If you plan to spend some time camping, a three-season sleeping bag should do fine. Make sure your camping gear is clean when you arrive at Auckland international airport. There may be inspections and disinfections by the agriculture ministry on your gear – the country is a big producer of cattle and sheep, and these need protection from pestilence.

 

Planning To Travel To New Zealand?

Beauty of Nature found in New Zealand. Many of us have always dreamed of planning a visit down under. Traveling through countries like New Zealand can be an eye opening and interesting experience for everyone.

Beauty of Nature found in New Zealand. Many of us have always dreamed of planning a visit down under. Traveling through countries like New Zealand can be an eye opening and interesting experience for everyone. It is something that requires a lot of planning and a lot of thought, so you should be sure that you are up to the task of the planning before you begin.

Try to imagine outside areas that are completely different from anything that you have ever seen before. This is what is awaiting you in New Zealand. The best thing that you can do while planning a trip to this country is to get ready to be outdoors.

One of the things that you can discover while in New Zealand is the Maori culture. This is a big part of life in New Zealand. The culture came from migrations by Polynesians about 700 years ago. This is 200 years before the European history even really begins. Most of the names of the places, the arts, and the architectures in New Zealand come from this culture, and reflect how they have shaped a society around it.

There are many places in New Zealand where you can learn about the historical significances that happened. In Waitangi, there is much to learn about a treaty that happened to change all of the courses of history for New Zealand forever. There is also much to learn about the gold rush in Otago, because this city still displays many of the relics of the country-wide gold rush that changed the face of New Zealand. Also, in Napier, there is much to learn about the Art Deco architecture, which only came about because of the city’s almost total destruction by an earthquake in 1931.

One of the greatest things about traveling in New Zealand is simply hearing the stories that are told in every city and town. You should be confidant to ask questions of anyone you see, regarding the sties to see, the different buildings or monuments, or the statutes. The people of New Zealand are extremely friendly and love to spend time talking to other people who have come to visit their country. They love to teach others about their land, and will always find time to answer your questions as a tourist.

Being outdoors in nature is the best way to experience New Zealand and all that it has to offer. You should be prepared to spend much of your time outdoors, because there are scenic displays like you have never seen before. What other country allows you to swim with beautify wildlife and also to walk a glacier in the same day? Ocean life, wildlife, and weather all give you excellent shows that you will never forget.

 

Royal Visit Boost For Holiday Island

The Mediterranean island of Malta hosts the Commonwealth meeting in late November, and in attendance will be Queen Elizabeth II, Tony Blair and the Prime Ministers of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and 50 other countries, along with the media from each country.

Will Malta let this golden publicity opportunity slip by?

Leaders of over 50 countries from the Commonwealth will be meeting on the Mediterranean island of Malta from November 25 to 27, and for three days the island will be enjoying the attention of hundreds of millions of TV and online news viewers and newspaper readers worldwide.

Malta has often been overlooked by holidaymakers and second home owners in favour of other Mediterranean islands such as Mallorca, Cyprus and Menorca, and hotels and estate agents alike on the island are hoping that the three days of publicity will boost tourist and property buyer numbers for 2006.

With good all year round weather and an English speaking population visitor numbers from the UK, which make up about half of the island’s tourist numbers, have been surprisingly flat in recent years, and with cheaper holidays available in the new destinations from Eastern Europe such as Bulgaria set to capture more of the UK holiday and property market Malta could see tourist numbers remain level or even fall in future years.

Malta Holidays

Malta missed it’s own target of a modest increase in tourists this summer, and there are worries on the island that the opportunity to increase awareness among potential visitors will be missed.

Michael Johnson of Tribune Properties who specialise in property for sale in Malta comments:

‘Malta is ideally situated in the Mediterranean to attract tourists from all over Europe and further afield but for a lot of people I speak to in other countries it isn’t an obvious destination of choice.

The island has a strong domestic property market and doesn’t rely too heavily on overseas property buyers like some of the Mediterranean islands do, but at the same time those that do buy here play a good role in the economy overall.

The timing of the Commonwealth meeting is good as it’s just before the New Year when a lot of people decide where they will be going for their summer holidays, and next summer’s tourist could be next winter’s property buyer. But they’re only going to do that if they visit the island first, and I’m hoping that Malta will see an increase in tourists in 2006 – it really depends on whether the island takes this chance to market itself in the months ahead on the back of the free publicity the Commonwealth will bring..’

The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting takes place very two years, and has its roots in the British Empire, with 53 members who were former British colonies belonging to the organisation.

Queen Elizabeth II is the head of the Commonwealth, and will be visiting with Prince Philip for a two day trip to Malta to open the meeting on November 25 in Valletta, the island’s capital. It will be the royal couple’s first visit to Malta since 1992, and welcoming crowds are expected in similar numbers to their previous four visits.

In addition to the Queen and Prince Philip, among the attendees will be the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Tony Blair, and the Prime Ministers of Canada, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Singapore and Australia.

‘Around half of Malta’s tourists are from the UK’ adds Michael Johnson, ‘and it’s a similar figure for non islanders buying property here. As well as increasing holidaymaker numbers from the traditional UK market we should be trying to appeal to people in Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand and other countries who take a holiday in Europe to consider visiting Malta for a few days to sample the fine hotels, hospitality, history and culture that the island is so rich in. But it remains to be seen whether the tourist board is capable of translating good free publicity into visitors for the island.’
