Wondering how many nights in Christchurch to include in our itinerary. Will be stopping en route from Dunedin to Blenheim, so arriving late the first afternoon. Originally thought 3 nights, so we'd have 2 full days to explore, but now I'm rethinking we might allocate that second day elsewhere and just stay 2 nights.
Things I've identified of interest include a city tour (double decker bus, or morning coach tour?), Quake City, New Regent Street and the Re-start mall, and maybe punting on the Avon river. Any comments on which of these are must-do's or don't-bothers? Am I missing any other great sights? Everything else seems to be trips out of the city...Akaroa looks interesting but not sure it's a priority.
Appreciate hearing from those who've been there - thanks!
