Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Christchurch Botanic Gardens and Christchurch Gondola. Explore Christchurch's surroundings by going to Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Akaroa) and Little River Gallery (in Little River). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Canterbury Museum, enjoy some diversion at Margaret Mahy Family Playground, pause for some photo ops at Chalice Sculpture, and get to know the resident critters at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve.

For traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Christchurch road trip planner .

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major airport is Christchurch International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 20°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
