I have heard that New Zealand can be a terrible place to visit but on the other hand i have been told it is great can i get some suggestions on wether it is a nice place or not thanks.
We had a great time for the most part. We were there from January to June.I missed having unlimited internet, but the Vodafone mobile 3g broadband worked well enough.I'd recommend renting a car for ultimate freedom. We bought a used car for $2,700 nzd and sold it for $2100. So it cost us about $5 usd per day. Not a bad rental.
I did get tired of driving on the really twisty roads during our sightseeing excursions all over the North Island. But I definitely want to go back and see the South Island some day on our way up to Oz..
