Queenstown
If its thrills and spills you are after, then a holiday in Queenstown, New Zealandís scenic city on the blue Lake Wakatipu overshadowed by the Remarkables Mountain Range, is an unmissable experience. The city is a winter-sports playground, and in summer offers the chance for bungee jumping, white water rafting and a host of othermore
Lindsey Mackintosh. Date of travel: Nov 2003
Didn't really like Queenstown - too many tourists with money. Yes you can do anything from here and it has a pretty stunning setting, but you have to share it with tourists spending money to get an adrenaline rush and fight off the tour operators - doesn't seem to have much local flavour. Views from the top of Ben Lomond above the town really beautiful and worth it though - you can take the cable car up and then walk to the top to escape the general crowds or can walk the whole way in peace and quiet from the road. You can also join the masses and sign up for jet boating, bungee jumping, luging, white water rafting etc. Also lots of amazing walks in the area.
