Queenstown is a Fun Tourist Town!
This is a tourist town with one industry: tourism. Once you realize that fact,m then you can enjoy it for what it is. A unique outdoor-oriented party town with a plethora of activities limited only by the amount of money you can spend. The night life is excellent. Everyone is on vacation thee and is very friendly.
Insider Tip:AQ is by far the best hostel. Try the Ice Bar for a novel experience. The Canyon Swing is worth the money, but do it in the afternoon.
