airbnb Christchurch Airport
| 5 min read

Sometimes, the best thing to do when you are on a vacation is to stay close by the airport, especially if the airport is within proximity to many interesting attractions. By doing so, you can be entirely sure that you will not miss your flight back home but at the same time, you can have one of the best vacations in your life. Pod stays in Christchurch, as well as cozy Airbnbs, are among the popular accommodations. The Christchurch Airport is one of the airports that provides easy and quick access to many top attractions in Christchurch, New Zealand. You may be bored of meeting people all the time, so it is time to meet some lovely animals in the Orana Wildlife Park. This park is different from the other zoos in New Zealand because it is the only open range zoo in the country! You can actually feed the giraffe, pay a visit through the habitat of lions, the mightiest animal in the world, and observe the activities of endangered reptiles and birds. The next attraction is a helicopter ride. You can only marvel at the sweeping views of Christchurch from up above. So, welcome aboard a Garden City helicopter and enjoy the flight! Finally, make sure that you visit the International Antarctic Center, one of the most enjoyable family friendly attractions in Christchurch. You and your children (if any) will get the chance to spend some fun time in the snow and meet with the blue penguins. The place also boasts its Hagglund ride and 4D movie.
