Book 28 of 41 in the Rough Guide Country Guides Series. If you read the Rough Guide and the Lonely Planet Guide in tandem, you can get a very detailed view of NZ prior to departure. However, in my view, neither is better than the other, though the Rough Guide makes me laugh more. 3 people found this helpful.

This jam-packed guide The Rough Guide to New Zealand is the essential guidebook to this spectacular adventure destination. I found the book lots better than Lonely Planet which concentrated more on North Island while I traveled in South Island only. We decided that Rough Guides are the best. They tell you about places to stay, eat and visit that are REALLY off the beaten path.

More than just a travel book, the Rough Guide also includes a somewhat balanced thumbnail sketch of the people and local issues. You end up with a Cliff Notes cultural 'feel' that I found very useful especially when reading their newspapers or speaking with the people.

I fancy myself somewhat of an expert in New Zealand travel, with numerous lengthy trips there, including two group trips that I organized and led. I have used DK, Lonely Planet, Let's Go, and Rough Guide, and there is absolutely no question which is best. Rough Guide. It is more thorough and more intelligently written than any of the others, and its graphics have gradually improved as well. Though not as glossy as DK or as famous as Lonely Planet, Rough Guide provides the traveler/reader with the best understanding of New Zealand. If in doubt, go to a bookstore and read the descriptions of a given place in Lonely Planet, and then in Rough Guide. It will be obvious which is better. I recently purchased the recent editions of both Rough Guide and Lonely Planet (both published Sept 2006) but have decided that it won't be necessary to bring both on my next trip to New Zealand. Rough Guide has everything found in Lonely Planet and much, much more. Highly recommend.

As a travel destination, New Zealand is distant, exotic, and unique. New Zealand lies in the Southern Hemisphere 2000 km east of Australia and roughly 14 hours flying time from the US West Coast. Its terrain is an exciting mixture of mountains, forests, glaciers, rivers, beaches, and three modern urban areas in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. Its human culture is a fascinating mixture of Polynesian Maori and British colonial influences; its animal species include specimens such as the Kiwi, New Zealand's famous flightless bird. The 2008 edition of "The Rough Guide to New Zealand is an excellent planning guide for those intending a visit.

At nearly a thousand pages, this Rough Guide nicely mixes maps, graphics, photographs, travel narrative and listings of useful websites. An introductory section offers suggestions on where and when to go (New Zealand's seasons are reversed from the US), and some outstanding sights not be missed. A second section covers the basics of geting there, getting around (New Zealand is the size of Britain), and some basics on the culture. A third section provides descriptions of the 14 major regions of the country, along with what to do and where to stay. Concluding sections offer some history and a glossary of local terms.

As the introduction notes, New Zealand is far away enough and different enough to justify some planning and an extended stay. This Rough Guide should meet most requirements for travel planning, whether the visitor wants vigorous outdoor activities like hiking and rafting, quieter pursuits such as museums and wineries, or unique attractions such as visiting the film locations for the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. "The Rough Guide to New Zealand" is very highly recommended to the traveler who wants to plan ahead and make the most of a visit to a unique destination.

This is a very good guide book and is nearly comprehensive in its scope. At first, I found the book a little hard to use as it is organized by geography, not by activity. But as my research progressed, especially after I have identified those major attractions I wanted to visit, the book became easier to use. And now after I have been there, I would say this is more of a "yellow book" kind of guide book where it gives you a lot of information but was a little scant on actually recommending you on where to go and what to do except for the "30 things not to miss at New Zealand". For example, how about some organized itinearies like "for the hikers, do these hikes... for the food lovers, go to these restaurants.. for culture lovers, go to these museums....?"

I also supplemented this with Frommers and together, the two sources easily saved me hundreds of dollars and more in finding that not-so-obvious and not-overpriced lodging/transportation alternatives. But the combo still missed some things (for example, I showed up at Auckland airport and found out there are actually several more local rental car agencies for hire than I was led to believe from Frommers' and Rough Guide). Nevertheless, for the sheer amount of helpful information in this very thick book, I give this guide an enthusiastic 4.5 stars.

After using the Rough Guide for Japan and finding it to be immensely helpful, I usually turn to the Rough Guides first whenever I'm going on a trip. When I knew I was going to New Zealand, I went to the bookstore and looked through all the relevant guidebooks. The Rough Guide seemed most useful, so that's what I bought.

I was able to plan a terrific trip with this guidebook. It has lots of information about things to see and do, provides a great range of accommodations for different budgets, and includes a lot of the nitty-gritty details you need to know about things like getting hike permits. The maps were clear and informative. I was especially pleased with a lot of the B&B/hotel/motel recommendations.

The only criticism I have is that some of the food/restaurant recommendations weren't so hot. I found those to be a bit more hit-or-miss than usual with the Rough Guides.

The definitive book on New Zealand travel-bar none. More than just a travel book, the Rough Guide also includes a somewhat balanced thumbnail sketch of the people and local issues. You end up with a Cliff Notes cultural 'feel' that I found very useful especially when reading their newspapers or speaking with the people. While the Rough Guide is based in backpacking and hostels and I am more of the room service in the hotel type, I wouldn't go to NZ without this book under my arm. The authors seem to know virtually every square meter of the country..what it is, what's it's history, and is it worth seeing. If there's a junction with 2 cottages and a petrol stop, they've been there and know where to stay and eat. There is a newer version of this book coming out in Oct. 2008. However,I used this edition on a North Island trip in late Sept. 2008 and can vouch for the continued accuracy of this version.In New Zealand hotels and restaurants change a little but the beauty of the country never changes. I've been to New Zealand many times,it's unthinkable not to have this book (and Jason's maps) with me. So, backpack or room service, don't leave home without it.
