Prior to visiting Queenstown, I was given the impression that it is (1) touristy, (2) expensive and (3) for people who craves adrenaline activities. In fact, these were enough to turn me away and consider Te Anau instead. After all, one of my main purposes to go down South is to take the cruise tour* at Doubtful Sound / Milford Sound.

Well, I ended up at Queenstown eventually. There are a million activities to do in and around this bustling town and my initial sceptism was erased after getting acquainted with her. Bustling, quaint and fun would be choice words to describe Queenstown!
Due to time constraint, I could only explore the downtown attractions, though it seems I have covered almost all that I would like to. I walked till my legs were aching and my face stiff from the cold. But, it’s all worth it.
Here’s some snapshots commemorating my fling with Queenstown.
