Wellington named as rising city...
Lonely Planet editors have named Wellington as one of the ten world cities on the rise. The newly released Lonely Planet Blue List (The Best in Travel 2007) describes Wellington as ‘more beautiful than Seattle or Melbourne’. And the rest of New Zealand rated just as well. In a poll of 33,000 travellers from 170 countries voted New Zealand No. 2 ‘most favorite destination’ (No 1 was Australia).
