Te Papa Museum
Wellington is the Capital city of New Zealand. Also called, the “Capital of Cool”, this urban city is filled with art, culture, theatre and history. While roaming around the capital might take some days. Apart from taking the city to sea walk, riding in the cable cars and visiting Makara park, your urban experience is incomplete without the Te Papa Museum, also known as New Zealand’s National Museum. It is the world’s most interactive museum and a one stop guide into the history and culture of New Zealand. A walk through this museum means experiencing the Maori culture, legends and cuisine. There are also two rides inside the museum to make things more exciting. These rides are basically stimulators called the High Ride and the Deep Ride. On the whole, this museum is a rare occasion where being indoors in New Zealand is equally fun!
The protected eco-sanctuary of Zealandia is perfect for those who love to spend time in the warm embrace of nature. The icing on the cake is the fact that it is home to some extraordinary wildlife including the endangered kiwi, the symbol of New Zealand. Make your bookings here.

This small town with its well preserved architectural heritage, seaport in the Hawke’s Bay on the eastern coast of North Island is usually left out from the travel list. Yet, this small town has such a rich art deco architecture that it is easily the photogenic town of New Zealand. Tourists mostly flock this place in February when the famous Art Deco Weekend is held here. The town is bustling with people holding maps, but otherwise it is silent and peaceful for the rest of the year. The place is filled with art galleries and museums. The national Aquarium is a notable feature of this place too. On the whole it marks a calm end to your adventure in New Zealand.
Make Your Way To Two Fun Days In WellingtonThe capital of New Zealand, Wellington is vivacious for all the right reasons considering its many art galleries, museums, restaurants, pubs and high end boutiques. The traffic is the (not so sweet) cherry on top and makes it a bustling metropolis to the core. The weather is crazy but the city with its gazillion distinct features (including some great architecture and an impressive harbour) is beautiful and thoroughly enjoyable.
