hi

i and my wife (coming to be) plan to have a long honey moon in NZ. Scene in NZ is too attractive thus we dicide to spend our lovely honey moon there.

Both of us never been there before, but we have done a lot of research travelling in NZ. both of us love to share and enjoy diffrential culture among others. We are chinese from Malaysia who currently working in Singapore, with fluent in chinese, english, Malay, variety chinese language (such as hokkien, mandarin,hakka); get used to multiculture like chinese, malay, India and others. Thus when we at NZ, we really hope that we have the chance to stay touch with maori people.

I wish that somebody may greet us for a farm visit, or even as garden workforce..... any local culture we are welcome

our wedding is on 3/3/07 and i estimate that we will be at NZ around 8/3/07. looking forward NZ breeze.

One of my favorite places in the entire world is Paihia, Bay Of
Islands, NI. A super nice accomodation there is the Paihia Star
Motel. http://www.paihiastarmotel.co.nz/index.html
If you do any tramping or anything like that, check out the
Queen Charlotte Track near Picton, South Island.
Further south is Milford Sound. Althought I've never been to
Doubtful Sound, it is said to be an equal to Milford, if not
better. Mitre Peak at Milford Sound is said to be New Zealand's
most photographed scene. I can believe it on a clear day!

If you are looking to immerse yourself in the Maori culture of NZ, head to Rotorua. This is a popular tourist area which I'm sure you'll love, and you'll have the chance to see cultural performances by the Maori people and experience a hangi (traditional meal).

My advice as a new zealander is, if you wish to spend time on farms, to stay at a variety of 'bed and breakfast' accommadation which can be very nice and you can have a rural new zealand experience while gaining knowledge of the area from your hosts.
Rotorua is where the tourists go to experince somthing 'maori' but it is very artificial and doesn't represent what is occuring wothin maoridom today in NZ.

not a good place for honey moon, honestly

there are lot lot chinese people, you will find it easy. but....

not romantic, neither economical. you wanna experience pacific culture you can go to fiji.

US, EU, South America are definitely better,or pacific islands like fiji(except NZ, beaches are brown and wet, you wont like it)

good honey moon.

Hi Daniel,
Unfortuntely, I don't agree with hahaha 2000 as I believe that NZ can be as romantic as any place. It all depends on what you deem to be romantic and what you want to do. I'm from Malaysia originally and have lived in NZ for more than 13 years now. I've also travelled to many gorgoeus spots pretty much all over NZ so let me know exactly what you're after and I'll give you more info. I do agree with jroo002 that if you want to go and do a farm stay, many B&B operators in farms also offer you a chance to milk cows, etc. Hope you have a great honeymoon.
