There is a thing about travel — the smaller the town the better the experience. Rangiora, with an area of less than 20 square kilometers, is a satellite town of the largest city of the South Island of New Zealand, Christchurch. It has the ideal location for a small-town, simple-life experience. There really isn’t much to see, a few resorts, an old wooden church, a museum and that’s about it. But the charm comes from the greenery around, spots to spread out a picnic blanket, and hiking trails that beckon exploration are what make it a great alternative destination, especially for those taking a break from the tours and things to do in Christchurch. There is nothing better than getting that sense of belonging in such a beautiful town. To have an immersive stay, check out these top Airbnb vacation rentals in Rangiora, New Zealand.
