Christchurch

Garden City

Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb. Employing wit, humor, and a modern perspective, the "Garden City" has reformed itself into a cultural center of the country, placing great emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly development. Your tour of Christchurch will yield its traditional character as well, with vast gardens, peaceful rivers, and gorgeous views of the coast. A vibrant city filled with pop-up bars and restaurants, wildlife parks, and sports activities, Christchurch has retained its elegance and added a contemporary flair. Christchurch is in Canterbury Region.

Where to stay in Christchurch

Offering an extensive range of hotels, hostels, motels with kitchens, and campsites, Christchurch makes a great place to set up camp as you explore the city and beyond. The greatest diversity of accommodations clusters in the city center next to North and South Hagley parks. You'll find apartments, boutique and luxury hotels, and backpacker hostels in the central district and towards the coast, while cheaper places to stay--such as motels, RV parks, and economy hotels--dot the outskirts and the area surrounding the airport.
