Tourists can visit parks which feature attractions like colored, steaming lakes and boiling mud. Those who want to bathe in natural spring water can visit a hot pool or book a hotel that has hot spring Jacuzzis. Other attractions in the city include bungee jumping, nature parks, zorbing and cultural experiences. Many travel experts consider Rotorua to be a must-see destination in New Zealand mainly because it has a beautiful landscape and attractions that will suit all types of travelers. As Rotorua is not densely populated, it is not a town that is known for its nightlife. That being said, tourists can enjoy a number of restaurants and bars on their holiday. Rotorua also has a wide variety of accommodation options ranging from hostels to five star hotels.
The best time to visit Rotorua is during the months of December, January and February. The weather at this time is generally pleasant. However, as this is when the school holidays are on in New Zealand, it is considered to be a peak travel period. This should not deter tourists from visiting Rotorua as the attractions in this area are worth every penny.
