Hi there,
Canterbury has been named the fifth most welcoming region in the world in the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards, while Oamaru, Hokitika and Invercargill have been named the most welcoming towns in NZ. They were followed by Cambridge, Picton, Lake Tekapo, Kerikeri, Palmerston North, Paihia and Twizel.
We'd be really keen to hear your thoughts on this based on your own travels around New Zealand. Do you think Canterbury is NZ's most welcoming region? And are these our most welcoming towns?
Where in NZ have you been made to feel particularly welcome on your travels?
As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it to be included in an article. Cheers.

Residents in a quiet Christchurch subdivision are concerned plans to expand a neighbouring shopping centre will lead to dozens of trucks navigating their narrow streets each day.

Developer Glen Percasky is assuring residents this will not happen, but some are still sceptical.

Percasky and his brother, Max, want to more than double the size of the existing 3.5 hectare Homebase on Marshland Rd in Shirley. They have requested an additional 4.8ha of land, which they own, to the north of the centre towards QEII Drive, be rezoned from residential to commercial.

Do you support a potential expansion of the Homebase centre? Why/why not?
