11 Reasons You Should Visit New Zealand

Lovingly labeled by the natives as the “Land of the Long White Cloud,” New Zealand is a distant country abetting the Australian Continent where tranquility in its fullest form reigns. It’s still pristine and un-spoilt despite cities and modern structures developing all around. Blessed richly with natural wealth, it has beautiful beaches, mountains, glaciers, geysers, fjords, and lakes making the atmosphere very natural and lively, and attracting people from far and near. No wonder, the country has recently attracted Hollywood filmmakers for shooting films. For instance, The King Kong remake, The Lord of the Rings and The Last Samurai were shot here taking advantage of the sceneries and the advanced technology available.
Places of interest include Milford Track Forest, A Church and a Star-filled sky, Blooming Lupins in the Coast of Lake of Tekapo, Purakauni Falls, sunsets, and many more places. Source: brightside
