Most of these cities boast a well-established transport network with efficient means of transport such as buses, trains and private or rental cars. A city like Wellington makes it easy for you to get around since it features a walkable, compact city center from its outer suburbs. Top New Zealand hotels include Kimi Ora Eco Resort, Sudima Christchurch City, and Rainforest Retreat.
