The sky was clear and the air was so fresh. In addition, we appreciated the calming and relaxing atmosphere…
There’re more scenic landscapes along the way driving from Queenstown to Arrowtown.
Simply take a relaxing walk and you’ll be amazed by the unique ambiance in Arrowtown. My friend loved the surroundings especially those 2 rows of tall trees along the street.
We visited the fascinating history of early settlement - Arrowtown Chinese Settlement. We entered the preserved old structure Ah Lum’s Store and reflected their living in the past.

Walking along the main street, Buckingham Street, I found the attractive Remarkable Sweet Shop. We continued our journey after I bought some sweets from the shop.

We stopped off again and wanted a sightseeing of bungy jumping from the bridge over Kawarau River. This Kawarau Bridge Bungy is distinguished as first commercial bungy site in the world.
In truth, bungy jumping was the thing I wish to do all along while in New Zealand. However, the cold weather depressed me and held me back at that moment. Be honest, it's quite scary seeing the people jumping from 43m high. Anyway, I did it later in Taupo, North Island.
Took a deep breath, we got back to the car and I continued to drive to Wanaka.
