Re: Backpacking Guide to New Zealand

Dear Fellow Traveller,

Are you thinking about backpacking in New Zealand? I have just written a brand new guide in November 2010 that is specifically tailored to backpackers in New Zealand, and long term stayers. I backpacked in New Zealand in 2006 and have recently moved over here permanently. I've seen New Zealand from both sides, and have now been able to bring this information bang up to date so you can get the most out of your trip. In the guide I have written all the top tips that I've gained from my visits meaning you can benefit from them during your time in New Zealand.

Not only will you get tips on where to go and what to do, you'll find out how to get set up with your bank account, tax number and phone so you can save time asking all the usual questions, and hit the ground running.

I've been a packpacker in New Zealand, and now a resident - benefit from our insiders tips for backpacking in New Zealand letting you live like a local on a backpackers budget ....

"Saved us a fortune, and we ate in style..."

"The amount of money saving tips in here saved us a fortune, and we ate in style. We managed to eat out in nice restaurants without blowing our budget, treat ourselves with 70% on spas and loads more. A good meal was a welcome change from pasta in the van."


"I wish I knew all this about the different backpacker adventure tours before my trip..."

"When I was backpacking in New Zealand I ended up on a tour with loads of people I never got on with and it kind of ruined my trip to New Zealand. I wish I knew all this about the different backpacker adventure tours before my trip, then I'd have booked one more suited for me."
