      Late flight into Christchurch and Coach Ride to Queenstown

      Christchurch Jan 2, 2015 at 3:21 PM

      My husband and I are getting into Christchurch from Melbourne at 11:40PM. Should we take a taxi to our hotel in downtown Christchurch and how much do we expect to pay? What hotel with 24-hour reception would you recommend near the bus/coach station to Queenstown.

      Also, we will be taking the Newmans Coach from Christchurch to Queenstown. Has anyone experienced taking the Newmans Coach from Christchurch to Queenstown? How comfortable is the ride and are there restroom stops on the way? What do you recommend we do to have a stressfree time on the coach for 8 hours.

      Thank you so much for your input.

      We want to purchase a sim card and data plan in New Zealand for our iPhone 5. We'll be driving thru NZ for three weeks,
      starting in March. Could you recommend the best carrier to deal with? We use AT&T in the United States.
      Thanks very much for your advice.

      How to go to Moeraki from Dunedin

      Moeraki Jan 17, 2015 at 1:57 AM

      Hi,

      I'd like to visit the boulders next week for my birthday. Just don't know the best way to go there without driving a car though. Is there a train going all the way to Moeraki boulders? Not quite sure if Dunedin railways only goes to Palmerston and Oumaru without stopping at Moeraki. Or should we get off Palmerston and find a way to go to Moeraki? Or is there any other way, by bus maybe? Appreciate your suggestions!

      Thank you!

    • Tent camping in March?

      New Zealand Jan 11, 2015 at 4:18 PM

      Hi all-- My husband and I will be in New Zealand for most of March-- most of our time on the South Island.  

      My question is about transportation.  We're trying to decide how to get around-- trying to balance budget and comfortableness-- and would appreciate any advice. We are leaning towards renting a car, bringing a tent and camping when the weather is nice, staying in a hotel/hostel when the weather is not. But we know that the weather can be fickle, so we've also talked about getting a campervan. However, we like the possible flexibility of staying in a nice hotel when we'd like (its our honeymoon-- so some splurging is allowed)-- we'd have a harder time justifying that in a campervan. Which would you recommend?  Car/tent (hostel/hotel if neccessary) or campervan?   The second concern is whether we need to book in advance for camping or lodging in March, or would we be able to wing it? Thank you in advance for your advice!
