New Zealand's capital has become a foodie city in recent years, its festivals attracting more and more visitors on cheap flights to Wellington each year.
Wellington has bags of charm, it blends a city experience with the stunning New Zealand landscape. Its location is beautiful - perched on the edge of a harbour, surrounded by rolling green hills - at the southern tip of the North Island.
Given its compact size, you can shop, eat and drink and see the sights - Te Papa, the national museum, is a must-visit, Mount Victoria is the spot to gaze across this beautiful city and if you're shopping in the Lambton Quarter, ride the famed Wellington Cable Car - then get into nature. Walking and biking trails are just a few hours away.
