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.

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hamilton and Cambridge had highs of 29 degrees C on Wednesday, and some surrounding areas reached the 30s.

Spare a thought for those whose job makes the heat unavoidable. Karāpiro Falcon Industries owner Josh van der Valk and his team are an example - welding in head-to-toe protective gear.
