Remarkables in Queenstown, New Zealand

Everybody says that New Zealand is a very beautiful country. That is definitely true. The pure, natural environmental is great.

I could not believe it. My dream to visit New Zealand suddenly happened at 3pm on Friday, 14th of January 2011, when our plane landed at Auckland airport. January is the summer time in New Zealand. During this trip, we travelled around both the South Island and North Island, which took us about one month to complete. During that time we saw some of the best places in New Zealand.

New Zealand has spectacular scenery and I have many fond memories of this country. We travelled around New Zealand by hire car, which I think worked out to be the perfect choice.

Below are some of the best places in New Zealand.

Queenstown and the Mt Remarkables

Queenstown, New Zealand is a busy town. There are a lot of visitors every day. And there is snow in winter. We did stay here for a couple of nights. This place has so many things around, the big beautiful lake at the a front and surround by many mountains. Queenstown is considered to be the best place in New Zealand for adventure activity.
