    Sheep, Volcanoes and Rugby

    New Zealand is a bit out of the way as far as tourist destinations go, but being on the other side of the planet should not be a deterrent to visiting a place, provided that place is supplied with such commodities as would make the trip worth it. And New Zealand certainly does not lack for attractions.

    In fact, you'll be glad to know that visiting New Zealand so late in the holiday season has no downsides, if you remember that being in the Southern Hemisphere means it's the middle of winter there, and September and October will be far warmer and drier months than August would've proved to be. In fact, this is the perfect time to travel down under, just in time for 2011 World Rugby Cup, which is taking place from September 9th to October 23th.

    If you're no big fan of rugby - though who isn't! - you will still have plenty to see and discover in a country full of amazing landscapes, cosmopolitan cities and one of the best standards of living in the world. Pick up a car hire in Auckland and start by exploring this diverse and multicultural city, home to the largest Polynesian community in the world. The Auckland skyline is punctuated not only by skyscrapers but also by a number of volcanic cones, giving it a very distinctive and unique look. If you visit the top of Mount Eden, the highest natural point in the city, you'll be rewarded by stunning sights of the city all around you. With your New Zealand car hire, you can easily leave Auckland and explore the North Island.

    Napier is as good a destination as any, being of particular interest to Art Deco lovers, owing to its amazing architecture. Wellington is also a mandatory stop, and for better reasons that simply because it's the country's capital. The city boasts an active and lively art scene, and you'll also be able to take a tour of some of the sceneries used in famous blockbusters, such as the Lord of the Rings movies, King Kong and Avatar.
