We too got the great deal to fly to NZ for 399. We'll be in NZ from 5/24 to 5/30, and our arrival and departure city is Auckland
The plan right now is to spend the last two days in Auckland. Other than Auckland, we're interested in exploring the central part of the north island - Rotorua, Taupo, Waitomo caves, as well as the north end - bay of islands and Cape Reinga. I realize we may not have enough time for all the activities in these areas. Personally, I feel there's more to do in the central part of the island. How many days should we spend at each part of the island? And what are the bestest activities you guys can recommend?
Oh, we're thinking of hiring a car and drive around ourselves. But we've never driven on the left-side of the road, so is it going to be a big problem?
Thanks a bunch!
