Information about New Zealand
New Zealand is a country with abundant charm and beauty. Before visiting the land of the Kiwis, one must know all the New Zealand facts and New Zealand information so that there are no glitches during the trip. Carry a New Zealand map with yourself while on the trip to avoid any lapse of schedule.
Weather in New Zealand: Spring, summer, and autumn – all are perfectly good seasons to visit New Zealand. Winters in this country sees a lot less tourism. The main cities like Auckland and Wellington can be quite cold and a little bit damp during winters, which do not send out a very welcoming vibe. But New Zealand climate during the springs and autumns are the most colourful, with bright blue sky, lush green and dark burgundies covering the country during respective seasons. New Zealand Temperature in both seasons is around 15°C-20°C, which is very pleasant. Moreover, this is right before and after the peak season of summer, which means lower rates for hotels and flights. Summer season is the busiest here, and beach and other outdoor activities are at their best.
Nightlife in New Zealand: Cities like Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch have some of the best nightlife scenes you have experienced. Other than the numerous nightclubs and party dens, there are many other ways to enjoy nightlife in NZ. Ponsonby and Britomart are two neighbourhoods with the hippest of clubs, so are K’Road, Kingsland and Parnell. Yacht cruises in the sea, dining at Sky Tower in Auckland, shopping and street performances at Wellington Night Market, catching up with live performances at the Opera House or Fire Nights shows in Wellington and stargazing in the Auckland Observatory are some of the best ways to spend nights in New Zealand.
Shopping in New Zealand: Buying souvenir is an important part of New Zealand travel itinerary. All the main cities are dotted with great shopping destinations to explore. Auckland has Ponsonby Road, K’Road and Britomart for high-end fashion. Wellington has Lambton Quay, which is a long strip of shopping street selling books, clothes, shoes, jewelleries. Willis Street and Cuba Mall are worth visiting too. Check out Tinakori Road for some unique boutiques. For art and craft items, Nelson is the city to be. Pottery, handmade items, handicrafts, wooden carvings, glass art – you name it and you will find it. If you are in NZ, then green jade stone or pounamu is a must-buy trinket, and it is best found in Hokitika and Greymouth. Rotorua is famous for best Maori souvenirs.
Food in New Zealand: New Zealand pretty much dishes out all sorts of cuisine for its tourists. However, there are some native dishes that you must absolutely try. Kiwi Burgers, Pavlova, savoury pies, and Honey Pokey ice cream which is basically caramelised honey-comb, are Kiwi delicacies you should not miss either.

Pruthisahil's 7 days trip to New ZealandEarnslaw lodge was not that much good Each and every moment
Shobha's 5 days trip to New ZealandIt was indeed a great tour of ours to a country like Newzealand. The tour was well organised with the help of your abled guidance and well planning. We appreciate the super coordination of our demands and supply by your side in an organised way. Nowhere we found difficulty. The days programme were executed orderly as per schedule. You also provided us (y)our Driver. Yes. Mr. Vaheguru Singh, ever smiling, an young driver mingled with us very well. We felt he is also one among us. He took us smoothly. The vehicle was also good to allow us to view the scenic beauty of Newzealand. Please convey our heartiest regards to Mr. Vaheguru Singh on our behalf. We appreciate the receipt of vouchers / tickets for the tourist spots.
Ritresh's 9 days trip to New ZealandWe would like here to take a moment and appreciate Mr. Rohit Thakur and his team for the efforts they have put in organising a trip for us that will be cherished forever. Our’s was a 12 day 11 night trip to Europe covering Paris and Italy. The trip was very well organised and planned. We had received all the vouchers and details well in advance. Hub holiday team was easily accessible when in need. Looking forward to future trips with traveltriangle.
Manoj's 7 days trip to New ZealandVery well planned and good support from pick your trail and travel triangle.
Rahul's 7 days trip to New ZealandThe support from Kusum and her team was great. Right from the hotel / flight vouchers, intra city travel to visa assistance and forex, everything was smooth. They were always available throughout and were giving us daily updates on our itinerary. The only thing I felt could have been slightly better is the itinerary. While it was a short trip of 7 days to Zurich, Salzburg and Prague; few things in the itinerary were jam packed and were not feasible to do. Otherwise no complaints, was very happy with Centaur vacations. One word of caution to fellow travellers to Europe, it was hot and sultry in europe and the hotels don't have ACs there so please book accordingly.
Abhijit's 8 days trip to New ZealandWe recently visited Switzerland and Austria through Travel Triangle for our honeymoon. Rohit from HubHolidays (one of the agent of Travel Triangle) designed our itinerary. To begin with i would say i was little skeptical going with Travel Triangle as this was my first trip with them and none of my acquaintance had gone with them. However our trip went smoothly thanks to Rohit who was there to help us at any time, be it day/night. All the hotels and sightseeing tickets were handed over to us well in advance which helped us to understand how we will be moving from one place to other. We lost our 1 day because of the airline problem but Rohit and Prashant helped us cover our entire itinerary despite loss of one valuable day. All in all i would say everything was crafted to perfection be it the itinerary or the hotel rooms or the sightseeing. We were delighted as all the things which were promised at the time of booking the tour were delivered. Once again heartfelt thanks to Rohit for all the support extended. Regards Abhijit and Apurva
Abhash's 7 days trip to New ZealandThe trip was great. New Zealand a must place to visit. Experience with travel triangle was not great. Basically they work as a intermediary with travel agent and only to bring them on a platform. Don't expect any follow up or support from TT in case of concerns or delays, you need to separately follow up with agent. My personal experience was not good with TT, I never received a call to update status of anything right from booking of trip to issuance of Visa or ticket and I had to call them for all updates. Also, you would need to give them multiple reminder calls. South Island is the place to be. We enjoyed it the most
Mohit's 7 days trip to New ZealandThe overall trip was good, it was well planned by the tour operator, all the documents for trip were given to us which made us little relax during trip, best part was these people were always in touch with us during the trip, few hotels given to us were really awesome but at few places, it could have been slightly better, it was a great memory for us, really Happy. best memories will be Jungfrau in Switzerland and sunset in Santorini
Bhargav's 14 days trip to New ZealandI would like to thank the team of HubHoliday ,Mr.Amit Rana in particular and Mr.Vikas as well, for making our honeymoon trip a wonderful memory for the lifetime.The itinerary was perfect to cover both North and South Island highlights in 10days and was also a mix of romantic & adventure getaways.The best memories of the trip are as follows: -Kaituna river rafting -Hobbiton set -Tranz Alpine train from Greymouth to Christchurch -Self drive -Milford sound cruise However,I would like HubHoliday to consider the following points as well in order to improve upon the package offered : - The package cost can be revised as I felt after the trip was over that if I had booked all the hotels/flights/activities/transfers given by HubHoliday all by myself,the package cost would come around 3.25/3.5lakhs in total for 2 persons instead of 4 lakhs - the breakup being : Flights international/domestic and visa : around 1.25 lakhs , car in both islands : 15000 ,hotels : around75000 ,activities :around 1lakh . - The hotel in Christchurch should have been better:room was too clumsy for 2 people Anyways,I would definitely go with the friendly HubHoliday team in near future as well given the interest shown by them to improve further once I gave my feedback to them on the package cost. Regards Bhargav -Kaituna river rafting -Hobbiton set -Tranz Alpine train from Greymouth to Christchurch -Self drive -Milford sound cruise
Nishitha's 7 days trip to New ZealandTravel triangle provided a great deal and an amazing package to NewZealand for 9 days. It was customisable as per my wish and everything was taken care of till we landed. I'd like to thank Mr. Vikram from memorable vacations who helped me get through this as well as Mr. Sharan and Miss Pooja from pacific holidays who took us through when we were in New zealand. We will look forward to planning more trips with you.
