Owing to the lack of proper infrastructure and capacity, Wanaka Airport serves only charter and scenic flights. When leaving Wanaka, Otago, on the South Island of New Zealand, visitors have three airports to pick from. Queenstown Airport is a 60-minute drive away, Dunedin Airport is a 3-hour drive away, and Christchurch Airport is a 5-hour drive away from Wanaka.
Wanaka is the access-point to Mount Aspiring National Park, is primarily a resort town, and is more popular for its outdoor activity opportunities. In the summer months, Wanaka is popular as a destination for activities such as hiking, mountaineering, and paragliding. In the winter months, Wanaka is swamped by visitors for its broad range of snow activities.
Where to go
From afore mentioned airports, visitors can reach these destinations.
Although Auckland is the most populous city of New Zealand, it is a wonderful blend of nature and urban. In Auckland you can choose to shop, visit museums and art galleries, take a trip to the Zoo, or see the other urban and historical landmarks. Alternatively, you can visit Tiritiri Island and enjoy the beaches and turquoise waters. The parks and ranges offer a different side of Auckland as well.
Wellington is the capital and second most populous city in New Zealand. The city is surrounded by hills and the coastline, and has a beautiful harbour. Wellington is a stunning blend of city life and New Zealand’s natural scenery. The Museum of New Zealand, and the Museum of Wellington City & Sea are two of the popular attractions among visitors.
Christchurch is the third most populous city in New Zealand. The city is a destination for arts, museums, parks, and reserves. The Christchurch Botanic Gardens, and Hagley Park, the Canterbury Museum, and the Court Theatre, are all popular spots for visitors.
For a better range of international destinations, it would be better to fly out of Christchurch International Airport.
Fly out to Bangkok from Tehran. In Bangkok, Thailand, you will find an endless number of temples to visit, and shopping at such low prices, you will want to buy everything. Most famous of the shopping areas is the Chaktuchak Market. This market that is open on weekends is a staple for visitors who frequent Bangkok for their retail therapy.
Singapore, just off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, is a city-state in Southeast Asia. This highly urbanised city is a multicultural and very diverse city. Each ethnic group has its unique culture, heritage, and legacy, which can be observed in the multitude of heritage sites across the island. The Singapore Zoo and Singapore Flyer are also popular attractions.
Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates. The arid sub-tropical climate does nothing to dampen the sometimes-decadent city. Between the souks (bazaar/market) of Old Dubai, and the talk structures, fountains, and artificial islands of Modern Dubai, you will find very little time to remain idle unless you are sitting on a camel or lying down at the beach.
