CHRISTCHURCH (New Zealand)

Sitting on the East Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, Christchurch is a unique destination for many, from the alps to the ocean. Although the current backdrop consists of cranes and scaffolding, new buildings and businesses are flourishing at a speedy pace, as the city works through its transition stage following New Zealand’s second-worst natural disaster – the 2011 earthquake .

It’s traditional English-feel is upholstered by its traditional churches and architecture. A city where newly introduced innovation meets cultural heritage. During the spring’s high-season, indulge in the thirty-hectares of thematic, floral grounds in the Botanical Gardens.

It is believed that the Christchurch area was first settled in 1250 by tribes hunting the now-extinct moa, a large flightless bird that was endemic to New Zealand.
