We booked a whole day tour with Grayline to go to Waitomo cave. No photography allowed, but it was quite mesmerizing (although it covers just a small area).
The rest of the group visited the Agrodome, but we chose to have a dip at the Polynesian Spa. The varying temperature of the pools provides a good spa experience. But I always prefer to stay in the warmer pools.
Highlight of the day was a visit to Te Puia, home of New Zealand’s Maori Arts and Crafts. There was a short Maori Cultural Performance. Highlights include a welcome Powhiri, Haka, Poi Dance and Stick Games.
Perhaps our karma was really good, the geysers were spilling its heart out while we were there. 🙂
And these boiling mud puddles was claimed to be good for the skin, and one can purchase some at the souvenir shop (of course lah.)
