Queenstown, worlds third friendliest city

By Nina Jensen

Queenstown has been voted the third friendliest city in the world by Conde Nast in their recent ‘Traveler Awards’.

With over a million votes recorded, New Zealand was the only country to feature two cities within the ‘Top 10 Friendliest Cities’ category.

It’s the third year the magazine has done the survey and the third time New Zealand cities have been rated among the world’s friendliest spots to visit.

Queenstown was listed as fourth friendliest city in 2013 and improved to third this year.

Readers said our South Island city is “the birthplace of adventure tourism—50 ways to kill yourself every day!”. It’s also “loads of fun and has great people-watching.” “Very friendly locals genuinely enjoy interacting with tourists,” including “a helicopter pilot who landed us in six different places on our tour… including a glacier and his favorite ‘lunch spot,’ which couldn’t have been bigger than a picnic blanket.” With “so much to do,” and “a great bar scene at night,” “you can’t NOT have a good time in Queenstown.

Of course here at Ray White Queenstown we wholeheartedly agree that Queenstown is one of the friendliest (and most beautiful) cities on the planet!
