Internationally recognized as a top holiday destination, New Zealand is actively promoting itself as a natural paradise along with an equally fit infrastructure. One of the most important industries in New Zealand, tourism contributes almost nine percent of the total national GDP. Showcased as a clean – green adventure destination, New Zealand allows a host of interesting tourist related activities like site-seeing, hiking, camping, jet-boating, whale watching and bungee jumping. With a stunning and diverse topography consisting of mountains, steep fjords, lakes, rivers, beaches and active volcanoes, the Maori culture still continues to play an important role in maintaining a sustainable balance.
Sparsely populated, New Zealand offers decent and modern visitor facilities alongside well developed transportation networks. Nicknamed as ‘God’s Own Country’ and ‘Paradise of the Pacific’, New Zealand consists of two main islands and several other smaller isles within the South Pacific Ocean. Make sure that you give enough time to your New Zealand vacation as distances traversing through winding coastal roads and mountains are fairly large, especially on the South Island.
