After the tour in Arrow Town, we arrived at Queen Town (QUEENSTOWN), which is very European, very lively and beautiful. Our trip to New Zealand was basically "shoot for a place" and we stayed in different hotels every day. Queenstown was the only place where we stayed for three nights. The night we arrived in Queens Town was just a cursory tour of the lakeside scenery and the nearby commercial street. The first sight of this neat and clean lakeside town surrounded by flowers made us feel that the tourist attraction was very attractive. At night, through the brightly lit commercial streets, the streets do not seem very busy, but restaurants, bars, cafes, there are more tourists, Queenstown nightlife may have just begun.
After visiting Lake Wakatip, it was free time. Everyone was free to move. Queen Town is the most lively town in South Island. The business center of Queen Town is built around three main roads. There are many interesting shops in the street, such as bookstores, grocery stores, dessert shops, snack shops and so on. There are many delicate restaurants near the lake, which can finish shopping in about 3-4 hours. At night in Queenstown, the stars in the night sky are shining. If you have a hobby of photography, you might as well drive your car to find a good scene to shoot the stars.
In February, I left Twizel at more than 8 a.m. and arrived at the famous Queen Town around 11:30 a.m. When I came to Queenstown, for the first time in New Zealand, there was a feeling of a large number of people. The strong commercial atmosphere filled every street, with a wide range of shops and tourists from all over the world. Although Christchurch is the gateway to the South Island, Queenstown should be the most famous city in the South Island. Then, we have to raise the high price of Queenstown, which should be the most expensive town in our whole journey. The restaurant is full of delicacies from all over the world. You can find them here. But while there are many tourists, Queenstown, like other towns, closes most restaurants after 8 p.m. Asian restaurants are the most diligent, some will open till 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., such as Thai, Chinese, Japanese and so on. Chinese food is a very expensive dish here. When you see a Hong Kong restaurant, the dishes generally range from $30 to $70, but frugality can also be chosen by people, McDonald's and SUBWAY. I feel that a strong commercial atmosphere fills every street, with a wide range of shops and tourists from all over the world.

This is the Pedestrian Street in Queenstown. There are restaurants and shops on both sides of the street. There are several shops with Chinese signs and shop assistants with Chinese and local people. One of them sells tourist goods (forgetting the name of the store). There are many things. The price is not cheap, but it can be paid by UnionPay Card at RMB.
Very busy, you can see a shop to buy Whisky as soon as you leave the castle; there are countless people selling cashmere scarves in this street, and they buy N pieces to send back, ranging from a dozen pounds to several hundred pounds, but Beijing is really not very useful!
There are five crossroads between Camst. and Lake Wakatipu, which constitute a commercial district where small shops selling clothes, skin care products, health care products and special tourist souvenirs gather in large quantities. Goodbye shoppers must be interested.
Moore Avenue is the only and busiest place in Queenstown. There are many shops on both sides. We spent three days in Queenstown, almost every day. It mainly sells health care products, wool products, special biscuit shops, hamburgers and so on. In general, there are Chinese salesmen in the stores. They asked a few questions. They are from Taiwan or Hong Kong, but they did not encounter inland.
Queenstown is a small neighborhood, but there are many kinds of shops. On Saturdays and Sundays, there will be fairs. The performance-price ratio is not very high. Looking at several leather clothes and boots, the price is very expensive, so just look at them. It's not worth starting with.
Too busy, people come and go, if not in a hurry, slowly and leisurely strolling, is absolutely an experience.
