Wellington, New Zealand

Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, sits near the North Island’s southernmost point on the Cook Strait. A compact city, it encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. Though sunny and mild most of the year, strong winter winds through the Cook Strait give it the nickname "Windy Wellington." If you live here, you already know why this is the best little capital in the world.

Some refer to Wellington as an “emerald city,” others say it's “windy.”  Both references are true, as the capital of New Zealand is located near the green-clad North Island’s southernmost tip, overlooking the Cook Strait - rather windy in winter.  Compact city as such, Wellington dwells in a comfy atmosphere attained through combination of neat sandy beaches and nice-looking wooden houses sitting on the hills surrounding the harbour.
