'Space and quality of life' draw travellers to New Zealand
25 June 2009 16:09
Brits are attracted to move to New Zealand by its "space and quality of life", it has been claimed.
TheMoveChannel.com director Dan Johnson explained the country has enough room to help residents feel they can get away from the recession.
He said there is still value to be had for those looking to move to a foreign country.
"Perhaps because New Zealand is so far removed from the UK, it is hugely popular with expats hunting for a more relaxed pace of life," Mr Johnson commented.
The expert added this, combined with value for money and friendly people made the nation favourable with Brits.
One destination popular with travellers in New Zealand is the town of Rotarua - set in an area of volcanic activity, which creates natural spas.
Also attracting visitors to the town will be British musician Billy Ocean, who is set to play a one-off gig tomorrow night (June 20th).
Those heading to the country on a fact-finding or house-hunting mission may benefit from having travel insurance to cover them against any mishaps.
