    This website is all just propaganda not much truth in it at all

    I second what mike said re contact info. Regarding safety, just dont go walking around quiet/isolated places at night. NZ is definitely not safe enough to go walking around quiet streets in the middle of the night. There's still a chance of getting verbally abused by drunks walking around or getting mugged (rarely).. (yes we do have our short comings and we are working on it but we do not condone acts of violence towards foreigners or any one for that matter).
    re racial/ verbal abuse, you just gotta toughen up buddy. that's just life. anywhere you go, if you r a minority, u will face shit. With that said, i'm an asian who'd been living in Christchurch for 7 years now and I LOVE IT. There will definitely be a few nasty people but you will meet heaps of good people too. Best wishes

    Hi Himanshu I totally agree with Mike that its just a personal blog targeting New Zealand. I have been in this country for 8 years and I love it. Like any place NZ has its pros and cons but trust me its not even close to what that website says. It is a quiet society with not much happening all the time as compared to India so you might feel it awkward but the crime hasn't gone to that level. My suggestion, its a wonderful country and you should definitely come
