Lonely Planet voted Christchurch one of the Top 10 cities to visit in 2013. The gateway to New Zealand's South Island, vibrant Christchurch is surrounded by a region of natural wonders. A city where you can cycle alongside the river, indulge in fine sophisticated dining; a city where, just 15 minutes from its center, you can scramble up mountain bike tracks or ride a wave at a surf beach.
