[WELLINGTON] New Zealand

[WELLINGTON] has a population of 386 000 people and is New Zealand's political centre, housing Parliament and the head offices of all Government Ministries and Departments, plus the bulk of the foreign diplomatic missions that are based in New Zealand. The city's centre supports an arts scene, café culture and nightlife much larger than many cities of a similar size. It is an important centre of New Zealand's film and theatre industry, and second to Auckland in terms of numbers of screen industry businesses. Wellington has the 12th best quality of living in the world in 2009, a ranking holding steady from 2007, according to a 2007 study by consulting company Mercer. Of cities in the Asia Pacific region, Wellington ranked third (2009) behind Auckland and Sydney, Australia. Of New Zealand cities only Auckland rated higher with a ranking of fourth best in the world in 2009, rising slightly from fifth in 2006 and 2007.

Greetings from Guadalajara Mexico
You must do yourself a favour and visit NZ - well worth it, especially South Island. The islands are small enough so that you don't have to travel great distances or for a very long period of time. The cities are all so different and very unique, amazing considering that the country's entire population is only approx. 4.4 million. Thanks for the compliment mate

Thanks mate, the city reminds me of a mix between San Francisco and Melbourne.

Thank you - the city is lucky enough to have maintained their colonial architecture and this creates a very special mix of old and new

Oh yes, I do love Wellington - even more so when the sun came out on our last day there - it was pure magic along Oriental Parade - pics forthcoming

We went to the one and only PRAVDA - awesome !! and of course the city is littered with MOJO ... I wish that Auckland had more
