Wellington, New Zealand, Makes List of Top 10 Cities

Great news for Kiwis and fans of New Zealand in general: The capital city of Wellington is the highest-ranked capital city to be featured in Lonely Planet’s "Top 10 Cities 2011" list in the new Best in Travel 2011 guide book. This is the first time a New Zealand city has been included on the list.

Best in Travel 2011 writer Catherine Le Nevez describes Wellington in the book as "Cool-with-a-capital-C, crammed with more bars, cafes and restaurants per capita than New York.”
 
"With its quaint wooden houses tumbling down a ring of hills to the city center, clustered on reclaimed land around the glittering harbor, in '100 percent Pure New Zealand,’ the country's most innovative and inspiring city might just be the 'Best Little Capital in the World,'" she writes.
