Hi everyone, I was going to travel with a friend but he has now pulled out, so I am a 33 year old female professional travelling on my own to Queenstown and Auckland in mid-September 2014. I have one night in Auckland, four nights in Queenstown and then one night in Auckland on the way back.
I haven't booked accom in either city yet - does anyone know of any luxurious hostels or very social hotels in Queenstown where I could stay to meet people and have fun, or have any tips for where i should go / what I should do, eg social bars or restaurants? Happy to hang on my own, I was loking forward to being in a hotel rather than a hostel but should probably try to meet people if I am on my own. Only in Auckland for two nights so happy to be in hotels and just pop out to dinner / walk around the city.
I am going to book lots of tours once i arrive in Queenstown, I am keen to drive out to Milford etc but don't really have any other plans. Does anyone have any tips that could help me? Anyone else travelling there at the same time and would like to meet for a drink/walk around town?Edited: 19 August 2014, 04:00
