The natural hot springs, bubbling mud pools and erupting geysers are just a handful of natural wonders on display in Rotorua. If you’re after a getaway but don’t have the time or resources to travel far. Rotorua is just the place!
Eibsee Lake – Bavaria, Germany
This crystal-clear secret has been dubbed the most beautiful lake in Germany. The serene deep blue Eibsee is hidden amongst Alpine scenery. With a number of walking trails, horseback riding, water activities and a beautiful restaurant that sits right on the lake -it’s easy to fill up a day at this beauty.
Hitachi Seaside Park – Japan
Although Japan is known for its beautiful cherry blossom, not many people take as much notice of the seasonal change when the blue flowers come out to play. Take a stroll through Hitachi Seaside Park in April to witness the emerald green hill flourish into a sea of 4.5 million baby blue flowers. In addition to this annual ‘Nemophilia Harmony’, the park features a million daffodils, 170 varieties of tulips, and many other flowers. The park includes cycling trails and a small amusement park with a ferris wheel.
