Recovering from the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 was no easy task, but Christchurch has faced the challenges with aplomb.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Christchurch: Akaroa (French Peak Wines, Swim with Dolphins, & more), Little River Gallery (in Little River) and Charles Upham VC Statue (in Amberley). There's still lots to do: take a memorable ride with TranzAlpine Train, stroll around Hagley Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, and examine the collection at International Antarctic Centre.

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

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Christchurch International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Christchurch can reach 16°C, while at night they dip to 5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
