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 much-loved wharf is currently closed after five piles were damaged in recent earthquakes.
Mayor Campbell Barry says the wharf is clearly in poor condition and the council wants to know what the public think about its future.
The council has budgeted $8m for repairs in 2032. It is clear, however, that the work needs to be done before then.
The council is expecting a new report soon on what the options are.
Former city councillor and council critic Max Shierlaw has already called for an “honest” debate on the future of the wharf.
“The Petone wharf is a luxury that no longer can be afforded or justified.”
