New Zealand Travel Tips & Questions

What is the night-life like?

In the cities expect the night-life to be very similar to that of the UK with bars and clubs aplenty and  also cinema, restaurants, theatre and live music. The larger the city usually means the larger the choice but strangely, Wellington is considered to be the night-life capital of New Zealand rather than Auckland as you might have expected.

The Cuba Street area of Wellington is considered the most happening part of town and many of the best known New Zealand bands started their careers playing here.

Outside of the cities and towns, bars and pubs are not found as frequently as in the UK, US or other European cities.
