“Vibrancy at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

Such a great area- especially if you enjoy a bit of people watching! Loads of variety in shopping options, eateries and the people that frequent them all.
Spend some time wandering its worth it!

“fun shopping in Cuba Mall and great books”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2012

If you love second hand books then head for Cuba Mall with a backpack and check out Ferret Bookstore (in the main mall area, west of the fountain) and the other bookstore hidden opposite down the side alley. Both have a great range of books on many topics as well as novels. Air New Zealand local flights let you have one 23 kg bag, so stock up!

“Too many choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2012

Wished I could try all the cafes and restaurants. You won't be disappointed. Don't stop at the 1st place, walk around, including side streets. You could discover some gems.

“Great walk in the city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

Whether you are looking for a place to eat, something to drink, or thing to buy, you have plenty of options to choose from. Street had a great vibe and although it can get a bit crowded at times, its a good way to do some sight seeing, people watching, or shopping or dinning. Great central location and fortunately not far from many hotels. Highly recommended if you are visiting Wellington!
