New Zealand is a great place for a tourist holiday and exploring unique attractions. Even though this country is located on islands near the coast of Australia. The diversity of its flora and fauna, and cultural heritage are original. And differ even from the neighboring mainland. For travelers buying tours to New Zealand expect only pleasant surprises. They should be aware of some related household details, such as the form of payment. And time zone difference. And even the voltage in the hotel outlet, which will be used for several days.
The state is located mainly on two islands: the Northern and the Southern – and the first is characterized by an increased population density. And, accordingly, a variety of cultural recreation places: restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. And the second one is famous for its natural beauties. Such as snow-capped mountain peaks, crystal clear lakes, and secluded grottoes. Although, there are equipped beaches on both land plots.
Those who prefer holidays in Australia and New Zealand should not worry about transport. As everywhere else, there is a comfortable air service, including domestic, covering the entire mainland and islands; railways, and paved tracks. The post office works perfectly and delivers all shipments in a matter of days.
To find out at what time you can call relatives without waking them up, you need to know the time zone. New Zealand’s time is 8 hours ahead of Moscow time. That is, when it’s 9 a.m. on the islands, it’s only one o’clock in the morning in Moscow.
Tours to Australia are often purchased because of the opportunity to buy cheaper semi-precious stones. Which are 95% mined here, and New Zealand is visited for the exciting sensations of rafting on the mountain and underground rivers, parachuting, hot air ballooning, and other extreme sports.
The desire to share impressions by telephone inside the hotel will not cost a cent, and communication around the city will be inexpensive. But a call to the homeland can result in a large sum, so it is better to buy plastic cards for street vending machines to communicate with relatives.
By the way, the use of hairdryers, electric shavers, and other household appliances has its peculiarity: the voltage in the sockets is not 220 volts, but 240. New Zealand dollars are accepted for payment, and the import of them and other banknotes is not limited, but the export is allowed only in the amount of 5,000 national units.
