This city seduces people into wanting to stay and having lived here for most of my life I think I know why. It's not too big (around 75,000 people) or too small. It offers a lifestyle that many people envy.
As a tiny example, you can step out of the front door and within 5-10-15mins be walking in the forests, around beautiful lakes or through thermal steam wafting across walkways.
Then again, you can be in the middle of the city in a couple of minutes
by car. Just these features alone are priceless without everything else on offer.
There's lots of mud in and around Rotorua too, this is Cameron's Laughing Gas Pool at Sulphur Bay
Although the photo above doesn't begin to show it, we have been voted the most beautiful city in New Zealand, seven times
in the history of the award.
That says a lot about the care people are putting into this
city. Yay, go us.
you are contemplating a visit to our city, I am sure you will find
something that seduces you into wanting to stay... just that little bit
longer… if not permanently.
