Imagine travelling to New Zealand’s South Island and taking in the view of Christchurch and the South Pacific from the summit of the Port Hills. Actually, stop imagining it and start planning it—and make sure going for a gondola ride, a punt boat cruise, and a day at the Antarctic centre are on your list of must-dos.
Ready? Let’s go! Wotif’s Christchurch travel guide will be your travel companion the whole way.
When your flight lands at Christchurch International Airport (CHC), you’ll only be 11km away from the city centre and many of our Christchurch hotels. Hop on the purple route bus that will take you straight from the terminal downtown…or you could just take a taxi. If you feel like driving yourself, book car hire and be on your way.
Since this is the largest city on the South Island, you won’t have a problem finding a suitable Christchurch accommodation. Everything from luxury resorts to budget motels and serviced apartment hotels are waiting for you to bunk in them.
