About Cultural Guide In New Zealand

New Zealand has dynamic cultures. They also have a very different and unique culture due to their immense love for sports, adventures, and art. New Zealand has mainly the Maori people residing there who affect the language, culture and art practiced there. The European heritage of the other people living there also affects New Zealand’s culture greatly. Also, New Zealand’s location in the world is remote and for nearly hundreds of years the place was not so easy to reach. The climate of New Zealand remains quite pleasant all throughout the year. Therefore, a lot of tourists come here to spend their vacation. Warm and welcoming people along with beautiful landscape and lots of thigs to do make New Zealand one of the touristy countries in the world. 

Culture

New Zealand has a multicultural society and the people from various parts of the world are welcomed warmly. Racism is something which has very minimal existence in New Zealand as compared to other countries and thus many people from other countries migrate to settle down in New Zealand. Due to the remote location of New Zealand, the people here are self-reliant and do not depend on others for anything. They emphasize on natural environment and do their best to protect it from all situations.

The Maori culture has been very strong throughout the past in New Zealand. The Maori people had distinct tribes, arts, beliefs and way of living life. Role of family is highly valued in the Maori culture. There were gatherings during special occasions and the traditional values included sharing and living in a community. They have immense respect for their elders and family members. This was affected when the Europeans entered New Zealand which caused the New Zealanders to lose their lands, identities, and way of living as well. The Europeans brought along their own culture and working style in New Zealand. When New Zealand became an independent country it became all the more self-sufficient.

Society

New Zealand is often regarded as a classless society since there is a lack of aristocracy and opportunities for the residents there. Also, for quite a long time there was no major difference between the rich and the poor people in the society. In the past few years the gap has widened and increased due to a lot of materialism. Things and goods are being continuously imported into New Zealand leaving no job opportunities for the people there. Artists and musicians struggle to make a living here since there are no platforms to acknowledge their talents. Now New Zealand has started various schemes for the promotion of these artists. New Zealand is soon coming into the picture as many Oscar winning movies such as ‘The Piano’ and high budget movies such as ‘Lord of the Rings’ have been shot here. Also, many award-winning famous writers are from New Zealand such as Katherine Mansfield, Maurice Gee and Austin Mitchell.

Religions

New Zealand has varied religions practiced here. Maoris have their traditional religion which is kind of pagan religion where number of different Gods are worshipped by the people. This religion only governed the lives, society and behavior of the people in New Zealand for many years. With the settlement of Europeans in New Zealand, Christianity crept in. More than half of the people in New Zealand started practicing Christianity and became Christians. There were various other Christian churches there such as Roman Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterians, Baptists, Mormons, Eastern Orthodox, and a few others came into existence.

Many people in New Zealand who did not follow Christianity adopted other religions such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Paganism. However, almost 30 percent of the people in New Zealand do not practice any religion at all.

New Zealand Cultural Facts

The people of New Zealand describe themselves as ‘friendly but reserved’ and ‘open but respectful’. While it may appear confusing as to what it actually means, it is not hard to get along with them. The people of New Zealand are famously known as “Kiwis”. The Kiwis are a lot who love to travel and explore. Kiwis love to share food as they see it as a gesture of mixing with people easily. Be it a picnic or a casual hangout, a  h?ngi (traditional Maori style of cooking) always takes place.

    Monika Dshngra

    New delhi

    Monika's 10 days trip to New Zealand

    Due to corona spread all was locked down. We were forced by US govt to cancel further travel in the city. Request sent for refunding our money back. But not heard on it so far. Corona is the only memory

    Birinder Purba

    Mumbai

    Birinder's 10 days trip to New Zealand

    Overall a well organised trip of 16 nights in Newzealand that took us through both North and South Islands. Bella Vista Motel and Appartments at Christchurch is not suitably located near to a market and also rooms were very small. Milford Sound Cruise and 90 mile Beach Visit. Weather could be a spo
    il sport and our Franz Josep Glacier Walk & Kaikura Whale watching trips got cancelled.

    Tarun's 12 days trip to New Zealand

    Raunak provided us with all that we required for our trip to New Zealand. He is energetic and was always ready to get us the best deals in our budget. Everything was taken care of before hand - car rentals, hotel booking, as well as reservations for our activities and we didn't have to worry about a
    nything. There was a slight hiccup due to bad weather - some better planning could have been better. However the refund for the cancelled event was provided to me on time - so kudos for that. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend Wanderbird Holidays!

    Yug's 10 days trip to New Zealand

    Raunak Pathak from Wanderbird Holidays was our agent from Travel Triangle for our trip to New Zealand. Raunak helped us plan with the best Itinerary, whether it was wrt the activities covered, hotels stayed or rental car selected. Everything was perfect. He ensured we are aware of all the rules or s
    tuffz that are important for a tourist to know. It was never that we had to do any follow ups. The vouchers of hotel and activities were all received well before time. It was great of him to call us and discuss the itinerary in detail for an hour just before the trip ensuring we are well versed with the itinerary. His efforts showed he did a part greater than what an agent would generally do.

    Ashishjain

    Hyderabad

    Ashishjain's 7 days trip to New Zealand

    It was overall a good experience. However, I would like to convey that Pickyourtrail has been really exceptional in ticketing, but in the planning of the overall trip it was poor. Follow-ups with the bookings and transfers that are required in any foreign trip was neglected, which I would consider
    as a big blunder from their end. I had faced issues like our vouchers being considered as incorrect in few of the places and in some, the agents to whom we were connected on the trip were not even aware of the booking. Their support team has a lot of people for sure but there is a lack of proper response from them. Our itinerary changes were not updated in the app which again created confusion for their support team who were not even aware of the changes. At the end of the day, there is only one person who gives the right directions and the rest of them just create confusion. I would give another shot in travelling with them only if they decide to go up a notch with travel planning rather than just giving us the tickets/vouchers. Just putting in my honest feedback, Thanks!

    Shilpi's 9 days trip to New Zealand

    Went for a vacation to North Island in New Zealand in Feb 2020. Wanderbird Holidays were of great help in planning the week long trip. All information and suggestions provided by them regarding hotels, activities, cost, location etc was so accurate, I felt as if they are sitting in NZ and planning m
    y trip for me. Raunak even helped me adjust the budget in ways so that I don't end up wasting money. Highly recommended!

    Manoj Modi

    New delhi

    Manoj's 7 days trip to New Zealand

    It was indeed an amazing experience as it has to be because it’s Newzealand. A paradise for Nature Loving people. And when you have a backup team of agents like Globe Trotting, you travel carefree. We had experienced all the climates there in the world in short trip to Newzealand. The Scenic Beauty
    while traveling from Queenstown to Milford Sound was breathtaking.
