Hamilton is a fast-growing city where tradition and history coexist with modernity, technology, and innovation. It has managed to become a major tourist destination given the multiple events that it hosts.

Rotorua is a major city located in the center of the country; it is south of Lake Rotorua. Like Hamilton, Rotorua is recognized for its beautiful golden beaches. It is also known for its lake network, which over the years has attracted increased tourism.

New Plymouth lies on the country's western coast; its beaches and has made it a fan-favorite in the eyes of surfers and skiers alike. Like most cities in New Zealand, New Plymouth was originally occupied by indigenous tribes.

Napier, the 'art deco city' is another city you might want to book your Rugby World Cup 2011 Accommodation in.

Nelson is the country's sunshine capital; it is sunny, fresh, and fun. It is home to three national parks, and given its geography, it is also bi on water sports and hiking. If you want to chill while watching the cup, Nelson is the place for you.

Dunedin is the country's former center of commerce and culture; it maintains its status as center of culture (being regarded as the country's architectural heritage capital).
