About New Zealand Tourism

New Zealand has been rightfully called the paradise of the Pacific. Home to the world famous Maori culture and many species of unique flightless birds, New Zealand is one of the most beautiful destinations in the Pacific. Tourism in New Zealand is highlighted by stunning harbors and inlets, colonial attractions, alpine summits, and local culture. Although New Zealand travel is often overlooked by its bigger and more popular neighbour Australia, the land of the Kiwis is no less.

Famous Food in New Zealand

Start with the traditional Maori Hangi which is meat and veggies slow cooked in an underground oven and another Maori favourite Kumara which is a variety of sweet potato. Seafood is obviously very popular, especially the Kiwi favourite Crayfish, paua – sea snails and Kina – a sea urchin.

Major Festivals in New Zealand

One of the main cultural festivals of New Zealand is the Pasifika festival, which is a celebration of the native Polynesian culture of the country. 11 villages come together to celebrate this. Auckland Lantern Festival and Chinese New Year are quite big as well. Other than that, there are multiple food and wine festivals, music fests and religious celebrations. The holiday season around Christmas here is quite a charming one.   

Romantic destinations in New Zealand

A New Zealand vacation can quite easily be a great romantic getaway. While the cities of New Zealand are definitely perfect for sightseeing and night-time excitement, there are many hidden gems of natural bounty in New Zealand, which any couple should seek out for on a trip. Only one small ferry ride away from Auckland is the mesmerizing Waiheke Island with pristine beaches and sprawling vineyards. Another great seaside destination is the Coromandel Peninsula. Do consider the hot spring geysers of Rotorua, hiking trails, and cruising trips of Marlborough and serene beauty of Milford Sound when you visit New Zealand.

Beach destinations of New Zealand

Being an island country, New Zealand is home to many gorgeous beaches all around the country, in both the islands. Cathedral Cove, Ninety Mile Beach, and Mission Bay Beach are certainly some of the best. Medlands Beach and Awaroa Inlet in the Abel-Tasman Coastal Track are not to be missed either. One can discover New Zealand in a completely different light in these tranquil beaches.

Here are some of the other best New Zealand cities to visit.

1. Wellington

The capital of New Zealand is also one of the best cities of the country, with a lovely urban fabric, waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, and lots of wind whistling around all day long. Located near the North Island’s southernmost point, Cook Strait, Wellington is quite laid back a town, despite being the capital city.

2. Auckland

Auckland is hands down the most dazzling city of New Zealand. It has the highest population, most number of urban attractions, and travelling here is quite expensive as well. Despite that, Auckland draws an extensive crowd every year to its sprawling streets. From the iconic Sky Tower right down to the Mission Bay Beach seaside promenade, Auckland is quite a treat to explore.

3. Christchurch

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand. This city upholds the English heritage of New Zealand history explicitly, thanks to the many vintage stone building that dots the city streets. The city is centred on the Avon River where there are many narrow, flat-bottomed punts gliding through for a tour.

4. Queenstown

Queenstown alone ticks all the boxes for a New Zealand tour. On one hand, it displays an authentic Kiwi culture in every part of the city, while on the other hand there are more than enough outdoor activities to indulge in, ranging from easy to extreme. There is also the dramatic beauty of Lake Wakatipu, set against the Southern Alps.

5. Hamilton

Hamilton is not the most popular name on any New Zealand tour itinerary, but it is an essential one if you want to know as much as you can about the vibrant indigenous Maori culture and other cultural events of the history. Located in the Waikato region of North Island, Hamilton’s map is dotted with museums, galleries and theme parks, as well as restaurants, bars and cafes.

By Air

There are multiple flights from the Indian cities mentioned above to the three international airports of New Zealand. Most people prefer to fly to Auckland, as it is the fastest and most convenient to reach. Among the many airlines that connect the two countries, some are Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways, Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Air Asia, Jet Airways and Air New Zealand airlines.

There is no India to New Zealand direct flight at the moment. The fastest India to New Zealand flight travel time is operated between Mumbai and Auckland. The connecting flight from Mumbai Airport to Auckland via Singapore, by Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand takes 16 hours and 15 minutes to reach.

The second best option is flight from Delhi to Auckland by Thai Airlines, which takes 16 hours 35 minutes via Bangkok. Mumbai to Auckland takes the same time by Singapore Airlines as well. Malaysia Airlines have flights from these two cities and more, with a flight time of 17-18 hours. Wellington has flights as well. Air India-Singapore Airlines flight via Melbourne and Air India-Qantas flight via Sydney, both from Delhi, are the best flights to reach Wellington.
