Rotorua is a smelly city, and sulphurous vapour is quite strong for your nose. But, I think you will get used to it immediately and forget this stench. It is because Rotorua offers scenic (such beautiful) views from the lake and Maori culture as well.
I started my travel from Auckland on Saturday morning. After 4 hours on the Intercity Bus, I arrived in Rotorua in the afternoon. I stayed at TerumoResort Hotel, the best location close to Countdown, ATM, and bus station.
SkyLine Rotorua is the best place for gondola experience and ride on a luge. Wai-o-tapu thermal wonderland is an amazing place with colorful volcano lake.
