I have copied and pasted a piece of great news from the on line news www.stuff.co.nz
It makes me proud to be a Queenstowner!
Queenstown, Christchurch and Auckland have made it to a list of 20 of the world's friendliest cities recently released by Conde Nast Traveler.
The list of the Friendliest and Unfriendliest Cities In The World is a part of an annual Readers' Choice survey where over 46,000 readers voted on everything from cities and islands to airlines and cruises.
Queenstown comes in at No 4 with a readers' rating of 91.8. Conde Nast readers said the "tranquil and peaceful town" boasts an "excellent outdoor vibe" paired with "down-to-earth, nice people."
"The city itself is breathtaking, and it has so many areas that are close by for scenery and adventure sports."
This "all-seasons jewel" is "clean and inviting", delivering "mountains, lakes and vineyards" that are "a feast for the eyes and the palate".
Readers thought Queenstown could get by on its "picturesque looks alone", but that it "goes above and beyond with its hospitality".
Isn't that fantastic?! (I don't usually cut and paste on here but this is special!)
