Reasons to move to New Zealand
New Zealand is gloriously beautiful, with lakes, snowy mountains, volcanoes and beaches lacing the country from top to bottom. There are more sheep and cows than people dotting the acres upon acres of lush green grass. New Zealand enjoys one of the cleanest and most natural environments in the world, and because it’s so small, it won’t take long to reach a slice of pristine nature.
People are friendly
Kiwis are known to be some of the friendliest people in the world, always ready to help you out. They enjoy dry humour and banter (especially regarding their friendly rivalry with Australians), and are extremely welcoming and genuine. You can expect to be greeted with a smile when talking to a Kiwi.
New Zealand has incredible local travel opportunities, from the tip of the North Island to the edge of the South Island; did someone say road trip? In Auckland, you can hop on a ferry to Waiheke Island and enjoy beautiful vineyards and a giant flying fox through the breathtaking forest. If hiking or trekking is more your scene, you can trek the stunning glaciers and mountains in Queenstown; it’s hard to resist the outdoors.
Safe and laid back
At the bottom of the globe, and ridiculously far away from the rest of the world, New Zealand is pretty safe from the threats of global attack and war. There is a relatively low crime rate, with two-thirds of people saying they feel safe in their neighbourhood.
