11 Oct 2007 wendy asked

Hi,<BR><BR>I have a day to spend in Christchurch. I have been doing a bit of googling and have found a few attractions. For ex, the tram and gondola, artic centre etc. But are there any must do's or anything that stands out above the rest? I love to know any suggestions.<BR><BR>Thanks Wendy

    In my opinion Wendy, the Tamaki Maori experience is a must. I also had a day to kick around and i did the Tamaki. It’s a reenactment and traditional maori dinner and it is absolutely unreal. i cannot stress enough how good it is. If you do it, you jump on this bus with one of the brothers from in the city and head out to where it is. They also bring you back after.

    It’s a bit confusing here because it’s only quite new, but it is mentioned on the website here:

    It’s run by the same people as the one in Rotarua.

    Have Fun! I wish it was me with my whole holiday still ahead of me!
