  • Arrowtown is a beautifully preserved village . There are so many cafes and restaurants to cater to the many tourists that visit . It is very touristy but worth the lovely drive just to have a look. 
  • Of road of the Bungy Bridge, passed by this small village to eat and do some small shopping. Is very advisable to make this stop and enjoy of the area. (Wishing to return)

  • A small pretty village far away from noisy cities, but overflowing with tourists. Don't pay $50 for a tour here-come yourself, to walk without time limits, relaxed lunch or dinner and wander around the local will.
