Where to go in New Zealand in may: destination map

perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

warning in may the weather varied depending on the city and regions of the country.

Although it is not perfect the weather in New Zealand in may is, on average, quite good in Tauranga and Auckland. I allows to appreciate tour in these cities. And even why not take a little time to sunbathe!

If you do not go to spend your time in a lounger by the pool, but, for example to go sightseeing around, the cities of Nelson, Hokitika, Christchurch, Hamilton, Dunedin, Rotorua and Wellington have a just ok weather for that in may. Finally, it is not advisable to travel to Queenstown and Invercargill that month because the climate is rather unfavorable.
