    Eona - when are you departing for NZ? r u flying directly to AKL/CHC or....? i m going on DEC29, HKG>AKL>ZQN (Queenstown).

    i m planning to rent a car driving fr Queenstown all the way back to Auckland.

    Day 1 Queenstown > Te Anau > Milford Sound
    Day 2 Milford Sound > Queenstown > Mt Cook
    Day 3 Mt Cook (Helihike) > LakeTekapo
    Day 4 Lake Tekapo > CHC (Ashborton>
    Day 5 CHC > Kaikoura (Whale Watch) > Picton > Wellington

    maizebb,

    oh...u met big john? wow...so nice wor!!!

    u plan to stay one night at milford sound? 我在網路上search info時, 見到d人話不太值得留一晚, 我都覺得milford sound 有點悶架. u think think ar...

    yes, 如想搭小型飛機, lake tekapo 是平過 mt cook or other places 架. 所以還掂你想在 lake tekapo留一晚, 不如留在o個度玩小型飛機.

    good ar, 留一晚在lake tekapo 會給你不同的感覺, 不過真係好靜, 但你可以從中享受下, 如果天氣好, 可以花d 時間行下mt john 和晚上睇星, 我就因為陰天, 改為在resort內玩煮飯仔. 我單在lake tekapo影相都影左好耐呀! 在lake tekapo 一定要試下 o個間日本食店, 好好味, 好新鮮, 價錢好相宜呢!!!

    我唔肯定我join的 walter peak dinner excursion cruise 是否與 milford sound cruise 同一間, 因為我係via nz agent 幫我book的, 不過o個度都有好幾個tour 攪架. walter peak 很美呀! 值得去去. 我地係o個度影左好多相, 好多都似post card呢... 如果講farm, 我覺得rotorua 的farm show 好睇d, 多野睇d呀, walter peak 我地係enjoy 個cruise, environment, buffet...我見walter peak 個farm show 超細, 而且我在rotoura睇過, 所以唔睇啦, 享受下o個度d 風景仲好. 不過walter peak 好細架咋, 但個景很good.

    rotorua 出名spa, 你可以一試呀, 因為我地沒有留一晚, 所以沒有得試, yes, 毛利族表演可以skip啦, 悶爆.

    hey, pls check pm.

    MaizeBB,

    Wah, your schedule seems quit full, 9 days can go from south to north. From Wellington to Taupo is around 6hours drive and you can via Palmenton North, it is a big city and you may stop there a while. Taupo is another good place to go...beautiful lake view! You must find a Motel next to the lake!! So great!

    Rotoura Hot spring is must go item!! Go a private pool for 2 person, time around 1 hr duration and more privacy and not expensive...also have shower inside after the hot spring. May go at night time...must have a good sleep then.

    I will go Christchurch via Auckland on 30 Dec, just one day after u and go by Air New Zealand!! Then how many day about your trip in total? May see u in ALK???

    Probaby, I will back to Auckland on 9 Jan from Dunedin and stay until 20 Jan.

    Anyway, have a good trip and let's share the pictures later.

    skysky - i hvnt decided whether to take skiplane or helicopter to see Mt Cook. i prefer those with a snow landing so i can actually touch / step on the snow mountain. however those departg fr lake tekapo wont feature a snow landing. However, if I m gonna stay at lake tekapo for a night n park the car there, i dun wanna go bck to Mt Cook (althou minimum time to drive bck) to take the flight. hmm.... let me thk thk.

    the reason why i stay in Milford Sound area for the night's mainly a matter of scheduling to better use the time. i only arriv in Queenstown at around 5pm or 6pm. so i try to make use of the rest of the day to travel fr Queenstown to Milford Sound. the way to/from Milford Sound's quite time-consuming & exhausting. so i wanna split the to & fr journey into 2 days. i wl actually b staying at Te Anau for a night as it's geographically proximate to Milford Sound.

    I'd modified my itineraries based on the traveling time needed fr one spot to another.

    Day 1 HKG> Queenstown > Te Anau
    Day 2 Milford Sound > Queenstown
    Day 3 Queenstown > Mt Cook (Helihike) > LakeTekapo
    Day 4 Lake Tekapo > CHC > Hanmer Spring / farmstay at Amberley
    Day 5 CHC > Kaikoura (Whale Watch) > Picton
    Day 6 Picton > Wellington > Turangi > Taupo
    Day 7 Taupo > Rotorua (Hotspring)
    Day 8 Rotorua
    Day 9 Rotorua > Auckland > HKG

    Hi Eona,

    Haha, I know I'm being vry aggressive to do dat in 9 days. My bottleneck's my annual leave year entitlement. Embarassed i tried really hard to pack thgs together to save time. (The most costly sacrifice's i paid abt NZD4xx for a domestic sector fr AKL to ZQN (Queenstown).... so sad... )

    Originally i wanna skip Northern Island completely, as suggested by Big John. However, I really dun wanna forgo Taupo / Turangi, esp the National Park. I noe I can't afford the time to actually trail / hike dat area but at least I can pass by. I'd anticipated the long drive so I may stop over at Turangi for a night. however, I'm eager to reach Taupo n stay there instead.

    I also wanna try the mud pool at Rotoura in addition to the thermal pools. Given the public pools r all vry affordable, I'll definitely go for private pool. Not sure if I wl go for any of the Mauri stuff thou. I may stay at a Mauri home but probably won't go for those cultural shows.

    Wow u r spending quite sometimes in AKL. 's dat for business or leisure? i'll b going bck to AKL on JAN6, which I kind of juz pass by to catch plane back home. As u can c, I got a really tight schedule.

    I'm still trying to book a farmstay but I sitll hvnt confirmed anythg yet. I really wanna stay close to the sheep/cattle for a while. I luv animals Cool

    Let me know if any of our itineraries happen to collide n if yes, we can meet in New Zealand for drink/food! Cool

    MaizeBB,

    As checked your schedule seems we can't meet in NZ and I flight back to ALK on 9 Jan and also not match in South island too!

    Yes, I will stay at north island for long as want to visit some friends overthere and may go Bay of Island (very nice place), Napier, Rotoura and Taupo for several days. I lived in Auckland before and more familar in North, so want to take my husband there (I can drive my friend's car in Auckland) and let him know more where i lived before.

    There may have some farmstay in Rotoura, you can check in web-site or check the information centre when you arrived Rotoura. The ' i ' in NZ is very helpful, they got much info there.

    Farmshow in Rotoura is quit big, you can consider to have a look, that's quit interesting! Yes, Maori show is boring, same as skysky suggestion. You can skip!

    sky sky,

    我又有問題想問, 希望你唔會介意 =P

    1) Milford Sound 你係參加 Scenic Cruises 還是 Nature Cruises? 如 Scenic Cruises 的話, 你覺得時間足夠嗎?

    2) 我想問下 TSS Earnslaw & Walter Peak High Country Farm 咁多個option, 你係揀左邊個黎參加呀? 有無試過佢個 Evening Dining? 食物okay嗎? 除左餐dinner, 仲會去邊架?

    3) 其實我係 QT 想玩"Shot Over Jet", "Skyline the Luge", 同係skyline restaurant 食一餐... 如果加埋 TSS 個trip, 我係咪應該安排 Skyline 食lunch, 再玩 Luge, 之後參加TSS Evening Dinning? 至於個 Shot Over Jet 就放另一日, 咁樣可以嗎? 另外 QT 仲有乜野吸引既景點應要去呀?

    4) 係 Lake Tekapo, 如果我唔玩 air safaris, 除左四圍行, 仲有咩野好做架?

    5) 我想問下呢個 Rotoura one day trip 同你參加果個分別有幾大? 你覺得邊個會好o的? http://www.nz.com/new-zealand/activities/auckland/the-waitomo-glowwor...


    btw, 如果我會去 Waitomo caveworld, 仲應唔應該參加埋 Te Anau Glowworm Caves? 會唔會太重複?

    how many days r u planning for ur trip?

    i only got 9 days so a bit tight. i plan to skip northern island as a whole.

    我total會去15日, 不過由於package, 有5日要留係北島~ =D

    我見你個schedule真係好趕喎... 你會全程自駕? 諗左係邊租車未呀?
