Once you visit Queenstown the phrase, ‘best things come in small packages’ will be taken to a whole new level. Very few places on the tourist map receive visitors all year around. Queenstown is one such city that is forever thronged by tourists. If it’s not for skiing, it’s for bungee jumping; if it’s not for adventure sports, it’s for some exquisite wine tasting! Bottom line, Queenstown will never disappoint you. Even though it’s fondly called the ‘adventure capital of the world’, the city does have its fair share of history attached to it, whether it’s in the form of a suspension bridge, vintage train or a grand old canyon.
Essential travel information and Queenstown tips for your visit
- Even though Queenstown is a really safe place, tourists do tend to fall prey to car break-ins. If you’ve rented a car for the duration of your stay, don’t leave anything valuable in the car.
- If you’re travelling during spring or autumn, pack wisely. The weather can change in the blink of an eye; so pack for warm, chilly as well as rainy days.
- At the best of times, Queenstown is full of tourists. The local people there are used to dealing with foreign tourists and are rather warm and friendly, as long as you mind your manners and are polite.
- Dressing appropriately will go in your favour. Even if you’re going out to a pub, it’s recommended you dress well and remember that drunken behavior is absolutely not tolerated.
