Aotearoa…Middle Earth…New Zealand.
Many countries inspire visions of snow-capped peaks, deep blue lakes and rolling green hills but few countries can claim such diversity of terrain as New Zealand, which has all of these and more. Have you ever wanted to climb on a glacier in the middle of the summer, then take a short drive and kayak in the most pristine waters you'll ever find? Or maybe you're seeking the thrill of going to the "adrenaline sports capital of the world"?
The New Zealand is Open campaign has been launched to remind visitors and work and travel participants that New Zealand is a great place to visit! Chief Executive Kevin Bowler said one of the best things people could do to show support for Christchurch in light of the recent earthquake is to visit New Zealand. "A strong tourism sector is vital for the New Zealand's economy and a strong economy will help Christchurch get back on its feet faster. We want visitors to know that the reasons behind New Zealand being considered among the top two places in the world to visit in 2011 are as valid today as they were when CNN said it in January."
