ONNS130912 : Best of New Zealand - September 12, 2013

Postby shaun » Mon Jun 17, 2013 4:31 am

Hi is anyone booked on a New Zealand trip starting in September? I'm booked on the best of NZ starting the 12th, which joins with other tours so thought I would introduce myself.

Think I might be on this trip. I am doing the New Zealand encompassed which starts on Sept 11th, I think is the full tour you might join. Just not sure of your date? Tour looks amazing though. Where are you travelling from?

Hi Wilsoa,

I'm from england but live in Dubai so not to far to fly. where are you from? I think this will be the same trip and I will meet you once you have been north of Auckland. Im going the bay of islands at the end of the trip as ive got family in NZ.

Hi I'm from the UK too. I am travelling for 6 months so I will have done a few months in Asia before I get to New Zealand, then I'm heading off to Australia after this trip. I have been to Dubai a couple of times as I have a friend who lived out there.. I think New Zealand will be a bit different. Have you been there before?

No not been NZ before so finding it hard to decide what to pack as weather is going to be a lot cooler then im used to. I did the Thailand to Singapore on a shoestring Gadventure trip in January and had a great time. Where you going in Asia?

I'm flying out Tuesday and doing the indochina discovery tour for a month then going off on my own to Malaysia, hopefully I will get to Borneo. Then via Singapore to join the New Zealand tour. I'm struggling to pack for 6 months especially for New Zealand as i think it will be much cooler there. I think I will just pick up stuff as I go. I bet its boiling in Dubai now.

Shopping in Thailand is really cheap and gets more expensive I'm Malaysia and extortionate in Singapore so try and do your shopping in Thailand. Singapore is lovely and clean but not a whole lot to do. I spent a week there but found most people were only stopping 3 to4 day which would be plenty. I stopped at a YHA hostel called hangout which was good and in a great location

Hello, I think i am also on this trip ... Best of New Zealand , commencing and finishing in Auckland? I wasn't aware it joined as part of another trip though ?

Look forward to meeting you.
