"Drive for 25 minutes to the Geothermal Wonderland Park outside the town. The route is from Rotorua to the south along the SH5 road to Taupo, passing through the Redwood Forest Park area, traveling about 27 kilometers, following the signs and turning into one On the trail in the forest, from time to time we see wisps of white smoke coming out of the woods, and a faint sulphur smell blowing in the wind. The Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Park is at the end of the trail. (The ticket office has a free guidebook in English and Chinese) Entering the park, the plank road is covered by fog, the smell of sulfur is getting stronger, the color in front of you is slowly changing, the flowers are gone, and the green is gradually changing Very rare, the emerald-green trees were smoked and stained by sulfur, and the whole land was bruised, leaving only dead branches and leaves, as if they had come to "hell on earth." It turns out that this is a relic left by a volcano. To be precise, it is a dormant active volcano. The open area is only a small part. The highest temperature recorded is 300C°. The groundwater flows over the surface of the magma stone and can be smelled everywhere. The strong smell of rotten eggs, if you can't smell this strange smell, there is a possibility of volcanic eruption. The road signs in the park clearly indicate that there are three connected circular trails, divided into 30-minute, 40-minute, and 75-minute scenic trails of different durations, totaling 3 kilometers. The length of the route is marked in red, orange, and yellow. There are 25 scenic spots on the trail, which can be seen in turn in a circle. Note that for your own safety, to avoid scalds, burns and corrosion, please follow the signs and walk on the formed trails when entering Wai-O-Tapu. Please do not cross the barriers of the restricted area without authorization. Do not pick up rocks, branches or other objects in the park. There is NOSMOKING."

"I’ve been to a great hot spring twice. The first time was the luxurious pool that caught the light rain in the morning. Although it was raining, the view was still great on the lake because of the raindrops, and the mist was occasional with wild ducks and seagulls on the lake. Spread their wings and tidy their feathers as if they are also enjoying this moment of leisure in the hot spring. The temperature of the hot spring is moderate. Don't worry about soaking for too long and fainting. There are not many luxurious pools but the scenery is beautiful. There are few people very peaceful and comfortable. The second time is at night. The ordinary lake view pool I chose is a bit disappointed. The clothes need to be placed in the frame instead of in the cabinet. Although there are cabinets, the door can only be opened and closed once.☹️ There are a lot of people and the inner wall of the pool is a bit rough. It is uncomfortable to sit for a long time and occasionally move. When the people are too messy, many people wear slippers to go to the pool and still think it is OK. The water is very dirty. There is always a tingling feeling on the body. Although the second experience is not good, the quality of the hot spring is still good. It’s very sweet and it’s recommended to have a slippery skin. The luxury pool is more expensive but the experience is excellent (the photos are all of the luxury pool)"

"Forest"
"Ancient Trees"

"Rotorua Redwood Forest Park, located on the south side of Lake Rotorua, covers an area of 55,000 square meters. It was opened to tourists in 1995. Towering ancient trees, shavings and leaves, unique landscapes, and fresh air in the park are must-see spots for visiting Rotorua. I visited the park and left the most impressive 3 attractions. 1. "Seven Fairies" mother and child tree. A giant tree that is uprooted and lying on the ground, on its trunk, grows tenaciously with seven big trees of different thicknesses and straight upwards. They are slim and close together, like seven descending fairies. The most tourists in the park must be the "seven fairies". 2. A giant tree with a diameter of 2.2 meters. Old trees in the park have a diameter at breast height of more than 40 cm. The thickest giant tree with a diameter at breast height of 2.2 meters and a bust of nearly 7 meters requires 4 to 5 big men to hold it together. 3. The canopy trail. Not far from the entrance of the park, a 553-meter long "canopy trail" is suspended in the air. The trail is made up of 22 viewing platforms built between 22 big trees and 23 suspension bridges with a height of 6-12 meters. It is a different kind of enjoyment to stroll on it and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the forest from a different perspective. Tips: Old trees in the park are more than 50 meters high. You must use the "panoramic vertical shooting" mode of photography to take a complete photo of people and trees."
