Well, no surprises there!! Fiordland 1,2, & 4. I can just hear the howls of rage and frustration from Queenstown, at 36th :-)
Must be pretty disappointing for Zappers for Tauranga not to be mentioned. There are some pretty strange selections for must do places to visit and their respective priorites:
Canterbury Plains at 26; Otage train experience (16) and no tranzalpine Express. Oiago Penninsula at 27 ????
I dont think so. Queenstown will have every right to be more than a little peeved at its listing.
Whats at Port Waikato ot top of Te Mata Peak, that I must seeand whats so special about Christchurch that I must visit to see?
It's all in the eye of the beholder isn't it bean! Anyway I don't mind the hoardes not arriving here (kiwi hoardes anyway) Keeps the place more special!
The fortunate or unfortunate thing about a list such as this ins the impact it is going to have on some destinations. We are going to get overseas tourists looking at the list thinking I must go and when they arrive there is nothing to see or do and conversely avoid places where they would get the most enjoyment.
Still I guess all lists are subjective.
Of course you're right bean about "nothing to do" in some of those places, that's why they made it so high up the list- all the locals voted for them as they have nothing better to do than visit the web and cast a vote! Makes perfect sense..............I think? :)
Aaahaaa vbc! so that's how you guys got to the top! Just nothing to do down there aye!
DARN, our guilty secret has been exposed !!! ;)
