I couldn’t have come up with a better one myself. These Daily Candy folks sure did their homework! They picked ALL the hot spots I would have recommend to anyone traveling to those cities in New Zealand. I know each city well, except for Hawkes Bay, but judging their suggestions of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown, I’m sure their Hawke’s Bay highlights aren’t to be missed. Good thing I’ll be checking out HB next year for my brother in law’s wedding!
In Auckland, LOVE Karen Walker, her shop and clothes, not to be missed. I’ve had many of drinks and late nights in Wellington’s Matterhorn. Highly recommended. Bicycle Thief was one of our favorite cozy haunts in winter, beer, pizza and open fires helped us bare the cold! I’ve written about Amisfield in Queenstown before..an absolute must if you are visiting New Zealand! Ahh, feeling a bit homesick for New Zealand after reading this article! I encourage everyone to visit there 😉 From here on out, for cities I’m unfamiliar with, I’m definitely going to trust the Daily Candy travel guides!
