The largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, Christchurch is the country’s third-largest urban area. Situated on the edge of the Canterbury Plains stretching to the Southern Alps, the city is bordered by hills and the Pacific Ocean. The city also enjoys its fame as the international Garden city which is mostly due to its meticulous planning and vision of the planners.
The centrally-located 161 hectare Hagley Park, the Botanic Gardens, the four leafy inner-city avenues, Victoria Square and spectacular gardens such as Mona Vale on the banks of the River Avon are among a few which substantiate the city’s claim to be called the Garden City of the world.
One of the greatest attractions to visit Christchurch is the Festival of Flowers which is being held in February each year. Another such flower festival – Ellerslie International Flower Show is held each March. For any tourist, to visit these festivals is indeed an exotic experience – colorful and sublime.
