Quoted from Whysnow:
NZ is AMAZING. I have been all over this world and it is one of the few places I would happily return to.
For cheaper, I suggest St. John. Stay at the east end eco resort. Cheap, easy to get to, nice day hikes, and great snorkeling by day and drinking by night (rum). We took our pre-honeymoon there and had a great time.
Thanks for the nice words. Come with Flank and keep them company.
All depends what you want in a holiday ... If you want 100 degree temps and lying on the beach, NZ isn't the place to come. Hawaii, Fiji, Caribbean would be better.
Las Vegas is good for drinking and gambling, if that's your thing. Maybe better for a guys weekend than a sexy couples retreat.
Nz is more of a destination ... Lots of greenery, scenery, bubbly mud, mountains, hobbits, adventure stuff if you like that. Plus drinking and gambling if you want to do that.
