Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Berlitz Handbook New Zealand is the ultimate practical, inspirational guide to this fascinating destination, with 304 pages combining authoritative narrative detail and stunning color photography. What sets the guide apart is the illuminating Unique Experiences section, packed full of practical advice on how to make the most of all the opportunities unique to New Zealand – from swimming with dolphins to hiking on a glacier and relaxing in a mud bath.

The guide starts with a rundown of New Zealand’s Top 25 Attractions, ranging from the majestic peaks and crystal-clear waters of Milford Sound to whale watching in Kaikoura. In the Trip Planner you’ll find itineraries outlining how best to maximise your time in New Zealand, whether you’re embarking on a week of thermal wonder or a fortnight spent wine-tasting.

The Places Section divides this enchanting country into 11 regions – starting in the sophisticated city of Auckland and finishing up in the vast southern extremes of Southland, Fjordland and Stewart Island. Each chapter is color-coded for easy reference, and features everything you’ll need to know about the sights and attractions in the area as well as maps to help you get around and carefully chosen listings of the best places to sleep, eat, drink and get active. The Places section is interspersed with fully mapped tours, suggesting a classic route such as a walking tour of Auckland’s stylish suburb Parnell or a dramatic drive through Arthur’s Pass in Canterbury, and Cultural Spreads that give a striking insight into an element of New Zealand’s culinary, artistic, sporting or popular culture, from Maori legends to the arts scene in the thriving city of Nelson.

Further practical advice is provided in a chapter dedicated to accommodations, transportation, health and safety, money and budgeting, responsible travel, and family holidays. The Setting the Scene chapter is devoted to New Zealand’s historical and cultural background, plus information on the country’s cuisine.
