Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: You could see everything in one day. Eating out is expensive. Free wifi in the restart mall area.

Liked: First place I've been to in New Zealand that felt like it had a history to it- even if it was quite a recent one with the earthquakes. Tram experience was lovely and plenty of 'hustle and bustle'.

Disliked: After we'd done the tram tour and visited the museum and 'spectrum' YMCA street art thing- wasn't much else on offer for a backpacker on a budget.
