Before going to New Zealand, my friend told me Christchurch is a very beautiful city that I must visit. Unfortunately, earthquake had destroyed most of the signature buildings and the scenery in Christchurch. Although it is not as attractive as previously, but we still spent some days visiting around the city.

From North island to South island,you can choose to take ferry from Welington to Picton or take flight from any airport of north island to Christchurch. We took Air New Zealand from Taurangga airport and landed Christchurch after 2 hours of flight.

Thanks Pei Pei and Fiona for sending us to airport superb early in the morning (We left Te Puke at 3a.m!), you both are so helpful and kind, love you!

Enjoying our flight meal :P

Is this Mount Cook?

To be convenience, we had pre-rent a car via ACE Car Rental website for our trip in South Island. You can choose to pick up and return the car at the same city or pick up at City A and return at City B if there is a branch at there. We picked up and return the car at Chrischurch as well. Once we reached Christchurch airport, ACE Car Rental staff picked us up and fetch us to the place to get our rental car.

Our turn~

We stayed at AMROSS COURT Motor Lodge for the days in Christchurch. The room is cozy and clean, it's worth to stay.

Okay, it's time to check out the city.Most of the famous buildings were destroyed during earthquake, we couldn't drive in to visit it as roads were blocked. Riccarton become quite happening after Cathedral Square is closed for visit.

Took some pictures while passing by.

 Walking in the Shopping Mall while it's raining outside.
