Geothermal paradise - Rotorua

Located in the North island of NZ, Rotorua has been famous for its spectacular natures. Along the highway heading to Rotorua, there is a lot of geothermal area. We were too ovehelmed on our first time seeing smokes keep coming out from the ground.

Wai-o-tapu geothermal wonderland is a must visit place in Rotourua as it is one of the NZ's most beautiful geothermal sightseeing attraction. You can see pools in blue, red and yellow along the walk way while admiring the scenery.



"Lady Knox Geyser" erupts daily 10:15am. There is s a staff explains and show us on how the geyser erupts by putting some chemical thingy into the hole. The whole process takes about an hour.

Hot hot mud pool keep bubbling, Yucks!

Found a public thermal pool near Wai-o-tapu. Without hesitation, we jumped to the pool. Ahhhh~feeling so warm soaking in the pool under the chilling weather.

We also stopped by Rotourua Museum. however we didn't enter the musuem as they were alsmost close by the time we arrived. Simply snap a few shots as memory =)

Ok, stay tuned for the next exploration of NZ!
