Hi socrates,

I am planning on a vacation in New Zealand this coming November. It will be a free and easy trip. Can i get your itinery as a reference to plan for my travel plan?

Also, I would like to seek an advice from you.

I saw that you got your tickets from SIA under the 2 to go promotion where the price is S$1278 pax. May I know when did you bought the tickets? Also do you have any idea if there will still be such a promotion from now till before Nov?

2 to go can be bought anytime. earlier = cheaper. i got mine for 1.3k or so last year. a few months later, it was 1.6k (for the same travel period)

Hi gasband,

Good itineary you have lined up. I went to England last year June on Emirates for $868. Really had a good trip. Enjoyed many places there like the lake district, Cotswold, Bath and liked London for all the fantastic museums they have there. I am sure that Scotland will have some very good lakes and country side which should remind you of New Zealand !

How much is your airticket there? what is your rough itineary for this trip

yes I will post my sir lanka trip and you post yours !

Hi all i've booked my air tickets to Christchurch and will be there from 19th Jul till 29 Jul.

Am thinking how many days shld I stay in Christchurch before making my way down south.

What are the things to do at Christchurch? From what i've read so far, there's nothing much. So prob stay 1 night there will do?

Not that there is nothing to do at Christchurch, just that whether you would like to do those things. They have a nice Botanical Gardens, take a ride down the Avon, musuems, Cathedrals. Slightly Further out they do not some attractions like the Willowbank reserves. The casinos and the arts weekend market etc. You get the idea. Its a more urban kind of attractions. For me, I am not so interested so I only stayed one night when I arrived there, and one night before I depart. YOu have only 11 days so ya, if you are more interested in the sceneries of South Island, outside of Christchurch there is more to see.

Shopping is not much, but if you want shopping for clothings, you can go to their outlets, Dress Smart (409 Main South Road, Hornby) http://www.dress-smart.co.nz/index.php/page/homepage

many shops in one places and I am sure you can find something you like. For groceries I go to this place call Riccarton Mall where there is a big supermarket and some shopping too. 129 RICCARTON RD - RICCARTON MALL and I stayed in a motel nearby this shopping mall http://www.christchurch-hotel.com ( Riccarton Village Inn - 106 Mandeville St, Riccarton - 3-348-5049)

Pretty good price.
