Fly overnight to Kuala Lumpur and transfer to your hotel upon arrival for your two-night stay. Take this opportunity to really explore the sights and sounds. Visit the Petronas Twin Towers, the Lake Gardens, the KL Tower in the Golden Triangle and the many sprawling urban areas. This city gives you the chance to soak up some traditional culture blended in with ultra-modernism in the form of towering buildings and contemporary shopping.
Overnight: Traders Hotel
Take an overnight flight to Auckland and transfer to your hotel which is situated next to the Sky Tower, making it the ideal base for exploring the city. Located on New Zealand’s North Island, this is a vast city that offers an extensive collection of galleries, museums, shops, restaurants and beautiful surrounds. Spend time at the harbour, visit Auckland Zoo, take a walking tour or climb the Harbour Bridge. If you want to make the most of your time here but don’t know where to begin, excursions can be arranged for you.
Overnight: SkyCity Hotel
Transfer back to the airport for a short flight to Christchurch. This is a small, relaxed and regenerating city with a charming ambience. Best explored on foot, make your way around the sights. The International Antarctic Centre is well worth a visit, as is the Botanic Gardens and the wildlife park. The quaint port of Lyttelton is just a short distance from the city centre but is picturesque and feels like a world away from Christchurch – spend time in the cafés and shops. Alternatively, take a day trip to Kaikoura for a spot of whale watching.
Overnight: Rendezvous Christchurch
