2018 the year to see Rotorua

Our beautiful city was named as one of the top places to see in 2018 in the prestigious The New York Times' Places to Visit list, and Te Puia’s geothermal vista was chosen as the backdrop to the article.


Coming in at 45 in the list of 52 places to visit, Rotorua is the only New Zealand location to make the list with the paper praising the city's "geothermal blessings" and doting Rotorua as the “North Island’s hub of Māori culture”.


You can see everything this article is boasting about at Te Puia, the centre of Māori art and culture and home to the world-famous Pohutu Geyser.
