Christchurch is Back on Track!
We were delighted to receive a newsletter from Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism this week informing us that the iconic trams in Christchurch are now back up and running. This final piece of the puzzle means that 100% of the visitor attractions in the city are now operational – and are a true testament to the optimistic and hardworking locals there.
Whilst there is a still lot of construction work happening following the earthquakes, almost all of the demolition has now been completed and the local people are embracing the opportunity to redesign the city – ensuring of course that all new buildings are built using the newest earthquake-related technology.
The regeneration of the city will take several years, and this interim period is a unique and exciting time to visit Christchurch – see the innovative Cardboard Cathedral, the wooden pallet open-roof bar (popular with locals and tourists alike) and the Re:Start shopping complex built out of shipping containers. All of these sit alongside the traditional attractions of the city –punting along the river, the botanic gardens and of course the iconic tram.
The biggest gateway to the South Island of New Zealand is still very much a ‘must’ when planning your trip to this diverse and beautiful country – for more information on Christchurch and how a stay there can be incorporated into a wider New Zealand holiday, see our website www.experienceholidays.co.uk, call our office on 01323 446550 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we can work with you to put together the right bespoke tailor made itinerary to suit your requirements and preferences.
