With increasingly strong cultural, economic and travel links with China, there's no better time to promote New Zealand's natural beauty in a format that is ideal for Chinese and Taiwanese tourists who are travelling light and yet want to take or send home a memento of their visit. Natural Wonders of New Zealand portrays 80 or so of the country's finest natural drawcards, such as the Hole in the Rock, Mt Taranaki, Lake Taupo, Tongariro National Park, the Marlborough Sounds, Punakaiki, Arthur's Pass, and many others which might be experienced by tour parties or individuals with a list of 'must see' destinations. The professionally translated text is set in simplified Chinese (as opposed to traditional) so as to appeal to all mainland readers and not merely Taiwanese.
Christchurch photographer Andrew Fear spends as much of his spare time as possible photographing the country's spectacular scenery. This is his second book with New Holland, following the highly successful New Zealand: the Real Middle-Earth.
