We had the benefit of going just after COVID so it was pretty quiet and Liam had a small enough group to do Steamed Pudding for us all in the steam vent, lush! Liam is also highly knowledgable, approa...
This is a great place to visit geysers mud pools etc bit of Mordorish countryside. It’s an easy walk for those who aren’t really into a lot of cross country 5 mins tops and you’ve been to the bubbling...
We arrived an hour before closing and was told yes we would have time to get around everything and also charged the full price. We did manage to see the geyser and the mud bubbling away and then told ...
If you, like most Kiwis haven’t been to Te Puia for years, you should go visit again. They’ve made huge improvements to the experience, especially the school area where you can stop and chat to the st...
Who did not play Lego when he was a child? Let's take a look at the real Legoland!
Legoland Malaysia The entire park is oval, and the park and water park are separate and can be circled.
Going forward is LEGO's miniature world. Here you can see the famous Asian buildings made with Lego. The landmark twin towers in Malaysia don't have to be said, as well as China's Forbidden City and Great Wall!
My Great Hall of the Taihe and the Great Wall, the structure of the building is still very carefully imitated, but the focus is on the front of the Forbidden City, there is a table, the above is a stupid dragon, and there is a drum team behind. There is a soundtrack button under each group of LEGO buildings. You can hear the sound of knocking and drumming with a click, which is too cute.
Look at Lego in other cities. All of them are stacked together by Lego, and there is no laziness. Singapore with a water-jetted merlion is also a familiar place.
When the weather is good, these Lego buildings with pools are really wonderful, worthy of a closer look, and feel like you have entered another world of dimensions. The
Star Wars Pavilion is another very distinctive pavilion in Legoland. Compared to other colorful projects, this looks more serious.
Of course, all the images inside are Lego. I was amazed when I entered. Restored a lot of classic scenes of Star Wars, whether it is a guard, a large flying saucer or a cosmic galaxy in the background, all come to life. Full of mystery in the dark atmosphere.
Maori Cultural Village has the birthplace of the world famous Puhutu geyser, mud pool, hot springs, New Zealand national birds, kiwis and wood carvings.
mysterious, wild, passionate, deep, these words can basically sum up the feelings of New Zealand's Maori culture. It is said that the Maori came to the Pacific Ocean on this unknown land more than a thousand years ago and became the earliest indigenous aborigines in New Zealand. The essence of Maori culture is basically embodied in rich cultural heritage, including carving, weaving, and tattooing. Maori are also particularly good at using geothermal energy to cook unique local cuisine. In the Mitai Maori Cultural Village, you can basically experience all aspects of Maori culture!
I thought it was a special village. The result was a very modern place...
I smelled the smell of rotten eggs when I entered the door. There is a volcanic geothermal fountain here, far away. The fountain is gone. There is also a volcanic mud, a spray and a spray, this do not know the effect of the mask ~ do not see kiwi, go to see the fountain, the smell of rotten eggs is getting more and more concentrated, also spewed from time to time, quite spectacular .
Rotorua is not only famous for its rich geothermal landscape, but also attracts tourists from all over the world with its strong Maori culture. The Maori are indigenous to New Zealand and are the earliest owners of this land. Rotorua is the center of Maori culture. Visitors from all over the world can enjoy unique, breathtaking Maori singing and dancing performances in the Maori Cultural Village here, watching Maori or quaint or exquisite carvings, and understanding Maori history, culture and traditions. The village is located in a large redwood forest, following the Maori guide into the cottage and entering the Maori life, from Maori traditional games, using sisal weaving art, learning to dance Maori dance (including man jumping haka war dance) The poi ball dance with women dances to understand the lineage of Maori ancient tattoos. The culture is presented in front of the guests in a market-oriented mode. It is directly lively and guests can participate directly in the interpretation of Maori culture. Haka is a representative dance of the Maori, also known as the Maori war dance. It originated from Hawaii and Polynesia. It is a group dance that is played and beaten with screams and snoring. The hail dance is performed by a man or by a woman behind a man. Traditionally, women have been given a major position next to the Harbin Dance Main Group because of their skill in anti-eyes. Most of them hold weapons and protect their flank; their presence is also a boost to other performers. This area is rich in geothermal heat. Maori people will adapt to local conditions, dig pits on the ground, layer the mutton, muscles, vegetables and other food into the pit, then cover them and use geothermal heat for cooking. Tips
This place is much more than simply a hot water attraction. It is a cultural experience. I recommend following the guide (free service once you're inside the park). The guide I had was a Maori and clearly spoke about things from the heart. There are lots of hot springs, and boiling mud springs and a hot spring that seemed to continue spouting to a few feet. Visited on a beautiful day with blue skies which always makes better pictures. #wintergetaway
