New Zealand listed as one of top 10 in Best in Travel guide:
New Zealand has been awarded another international travel gong after being named one of the top countries to visit in 2010 by Lonely Planet's Best in Travel guide.
Each year staff and author's from the travel bible put together an overview of some of their best travel experiences from around the world.
When describing New Zealand, authors adhered to the motto "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
"The land of Maori and hobbits certainly didn't need repairing," according to the guide.
The book recommends travellers to try paragliding over Queenstown, hiking in Tongariro National Park, kayaking in Abel Tasman National Park and taking a flight over Fiordland for those seeking "life-changing experiences".
The South Island's Otago Peninsula is named one of the 10 best cycling routes, while Dunedin is highlighted as one of the top 10 places to take Rover for a walk. Sustainable tourism practices in New Zealand are praised.
Tourism New Zealand chief executive George Hickton told media he was astonished by the industry nod.
