Destination New Zealand Part 2

Where are the best destinations in summer?

People tend to head out of the cities to the warmest summer hotspots. For Auckland resident’s that generally means a holiday at any of these places: Northland, Bay of Islands, Coromandel, or Waiheke Island (known to locals as Waiheke). For residents of Wellington then Lake Taupo, The Wairarapa, and Hawkes Bay are all easily accessed. In the South Island areas of Nelson – Golden Bay, Queenstown and Wanaka, are all very popular destinations over the summer. These destinations get booked out very quickly so you need to get in early when planning your next holiday accommodation.

What clothing should I take if I am travelling to New Zealand in summer?

Light clothes – shorts, t-shirts, open shoes, flip flops, walking shoes, however make sure you pack a sweater/long sleeve top should the weather turn a bit cooler, especially if you are visiting the high country. Also, pack a light jacket as some summer rain can be expected, especially in December.

What are the best destinations for winter?

New Zealand is world-renowned for its skiing and winter activity destinations. In the North Island, the Central Plateau is located equidistant from both Auckland and Wellington making it a great weekend ski destination. The closest accommodations are in National Park, Ohakune or just an hour away is the lakeside destinations of Taupo and Turangi

In the South Island, skiers are spoilt for choice as to where they go to get their fix. Queenstown is the ultimate 5 star alpine resort region, with 4 magnificent ski fields all within close proximity. Wanaka is an hour away and boasts another two great ski fields, and then further north to Canterbury you will find Mt Hutt and Methven and the club skifelds.

Winter in New Zealand is not just about skiing. Rotorua, Taupo and Hanmer Springs have steaming geothermal pools to sink into and warm up in, and the main cities of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch are great for that weekend getaway, shopping trip or fine dining experience.

All towns, cities, and regions of New Zealand offer something special for everyone to enjoy, thus we recommend you travel all over the North and South Islands extensively, to ensure you really have the best time and experiences during your holiday.

What clothing should I take if I am travelling to New Zealand in winter?

Pack winter clothing if travelling to New Zealand between May and September and bring layers as the days can vary dramatically and rapidly. A warm jumper, long pants and closed in shoes will be your day-to-day ware, and a rain jacket would also prove useful. Most ski fields will have gear and clothing that you can hire, so you don’t need to bring your bulky things if you do not wish.

New Zealand has a very strong sun so you need to cover up with high strength sun block especially in summer, and even in winter when up the skiing the mountains, or anytime enjoying the higher elevated regions of New Zealand.

Qatar – A great tourist destination

Qatar – A great tourist destination

Qatar appears to be a place of high end tourism. Instead of being endowed with natural gifts, it has had  many things created with diligence and determination. This makes a trip to Qatar so interesting and fascinating. Some people might find the conspicuous display of oil wealth slightly distasteful, but it is nothing to compare with the behavior of English tourists in Spain. The place is full of artificial monuments but it is not a problem as the replicas are very good indeed. As part of the process of embracing the nature of developments, it is advisable to book a room in a luxury hotel. This is the place people with money can really enjoy the beauties of Qatar. It seems that no expense is spared to give the hotel guests some of the world’s most luxurious treatment.

The costs of living in Qatar are relatively higher than the rest of the Middle East but they are lower for the Western visitors that come from countries that have outrageous prices on almost all products. It is a good idea to take a tour of the desert area so that the visitor gets a perspective on this landscape feature that determines the way that the Qatar people lead their lives. It is also practical to request a guided tour of the traditional living quarters because these are gradually being taken over by the large developments that are now characteristic of the area. The Middle Eastern cuisine is very interesting but might not suit all the tastes of the visitors. Gambling is morally frowned upon and there is a ban on alcohol in places where the locals are frequent visitors. The region is an Islamic enclave and therefore the visitors should expect some very conservative views.

If they expect to enjoy the visit to Qatar, they will need to ensure that they are in a position to pick up all the different tabs that go with the trip. They also need to remember that they cannot apply the cultural standards of their home areas to Qatar. This is a region that has strict laws against the foreigners that fail to abide by their rules. Women are particularly vulnerable to the restrictions that are imposed by conservative thing. Despite all that background, Qatar still remains one of the most progressive countries in the Middle East. There are efforts to cater for the Western tourists. The shopping is rather good but it tends to concentrate on the designer items rather than the local produce. That is the kind of thing that you could get in Milan or London so it should not become the focus of the trip. Nevertheless the visit to Qatar will be an interesting contrast to some of the countries in Europe in terms of the norms that are followed.
