Lonely Planet Releases Christchurch Chapter | Stuff.co.nz


Christchurch is "innovative and inspiring"...
Lovely words from the Lonely Planet Guide...
They have released the Christchurch Chapter free for everyone..
The book emphasises how the city has a unique opportunity to rethink urban form with draft plans for the city's rebuild including a compact, low-rise city centre, neighbourhood green spaces and parks and cycleways along Avon River.
''Coupled with the endurance and energy of the people of Christchurch, the city's future promises to be both interesting and innovative.''
The 48-page chapter is the first Christchurch guidebook to be released since the February 22, 2011 earthquake.
Lonely Planet associate guidebook publisher Errol Hunt said due to the city's changing nature it was important to get up-to-date information out to travellers as soon as possible.
The 16th edition of the guidebook is due for release in September. However, the Christchurch chapter is available for free online.
