With pure Alpine air, stunning views across snow-capped mountains and crystal clear lakes, Queenstown, New Zealand, is the place where reality is more beautiful than imagination.
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open” (Jawaharlal Nehru)
New Zealand’s diverse and dramatic landscape has drawn many visitors to the youngest country on earth. New Zealand’s diverse and dramatic landscape draws many visitors to its shores. From fiords to rainforests, ocean beaches to volcanic cones, the relatively untouched landscape is simply breathtaking. There are plenty of reasons why New Zealand is rated one of the world’s preferred destinations, such as the stunning scenery, wide open spaces, extreme adventure, clean air, mouth-watering food and wine, to name just a few. I travelled to Queenstown, a scenic town in South Island and discovered one of the most beautiful places on earth. When my plane was about to touch down, I was busy taking pictures of the beautiful scenery. I thought that the view would be better when you are on top, but boy was I wrong. As I stepped foot outside the aeroplane, I was gasping for air, as I was so mesmerized by the stunning view. Surrounded by majestic mountains and nestling on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown’s stunning scenery is inspiring. There is a wide range of activities that will suit everyone. Try your hand at gold panning or fishing with a rod. A wine trail will reveal award-winning wines from the world’s most southern vineyards. Queenstown’s reputation as the adventure capital of the world is well earned as it is home the world’s first commercial bungy-jumping site. I was here to make sure that I tried most of what Queensland has to offer.
