There’s a reason that one nickname for the country is ‘Godzone’ – Kiwis love to live the good life, and your clients are sure to fall in love with the New Zealand lifestyle as well.
That lifestyle is a relaxed, easygoing and enjoyable one, and there’s plenty of great ways to experience it. If your clients are in the market for the absolute best of what the country has to offer, you can suggest they treat themselves to the luxury lifestyle on offer at the country’s best lodges, resorts and destination spas.
You don’t need an unlimited budget to eat well in New Zealand, though. New Zealand is still primarily an agricultural nation and turns out some of the best produce in the world, and local chefs prepare it with the culinary skills to do it justice. New Zealand has also been making wine since the arrival of the first European settlers (the nation’s oldest winemaker, Mission Estate, has been producing wines in Hawke’s Bay since 1851), but the New Zealand wine industry has really taken off in more recent times to take its place on the world stage, and is internationally lauded for producing some seriously top drops.
This puts excellent, varied cuisine, fine wines and craft beers immediately to hand all over the county. Your clients may like to take a winery tour by bicycle, buy New Zealand’s outstanding produce and gourmet/artisan food stuffs direct from local growers and producers at a farmers’ market, or dine in world-class restaurants.
When the eating and drinking is done, New Zealand offers an excellent range the shops and boutiques in both large cities and small country towns where your clients can discover the exclusive, the fashionable, the delicious, the quirky, and the unique.
