Christchurch is a big city, lots of people from all over the world (specially asians).
Lots of accomadation (BBH etc.- r u looking for a flat??), places to go/eat out.
good public transport
lots to do and see
probably easy to find a job

About 1-2hrs drive there is the Peninsula (was it called Akaroa??) and it's really nice and quiet there.

just send me a message, if u need more help/information ;)

the first time I was in NZ for 11 months, spend just a couple of days in CHCH itself.

Now I've been back for 2 months.

will see if I can find out about a few addresses for u...;)
