Completely revised and updated for 2006, "Let's Go New Zealand" is the only choice for the budget traveller. Researched and compiled entirely by students who know first-hand how to see the world on the cheap, this guide has insider tips and information for the socially conscious traveller and is more useful and opinionated than ever. An ethereal quality seems to surround the island nation of New Zealand, or 'Aotearoa' - land of the long white cloud - in Maori. The incredible ecological diversity of these islands draws visitors from the world over to enjoy the natural splendour, nature reserves and national parks. Also famous for its adrenaline opportunities such as bungee jumping, adventure caving and zorbing, New Zealand manages to balance an environment as wildly thrilling as it is heartbreakingly beautiful. This title includes: detailed maps; listings at all price levels for accommodation, food, attractions and more; information on working, studying and volunteering in the region; and, time and money-saving tips. 'Guides that penetrate the veneer of holiday brochures and mine the grit of real life'. - "Economist". '[The] ideal companion for the independent traveller'.
