Taupo Travel Tips & Suggestions

Taupo is a great place. I enjoyd every bit of it. The guys are very hot hehehe. But I recommend Taupo to any travellers. There are heaps of activites e.g. walks, skydiving, the lake, and going to the mountains. There's always somethng to do here.
Taupo has to be one of my favourite places in New Zealand. The skydiving is a must and the Tongariro crossing was amazing. Anybody of reasonable fitness could do this trek without too many problems but just watch your footing! As for night life... I can vauguely remember a night at the Holy Cow... madness!
Being a New Zealander, I've been to Taupo on road trips plenty of times. It's probably my favourite place in NZ (North Island anyway). There's tons to do in winter and summer, and it's absolutely beautiful. Nightlife's good too, being a tourist town. And I would recommend Taupo Tandem Skydiving, it's the best thing I've EVER done (and cheap too, only $200NZ for a 12,000ft jump). Also do the Taupo Bungy while your there, check out DeBretts Thermal Resort (big natural hot water pools) as well for a unique NZ experience, especially at night. A must stop over for anyone travelling New Zealand.
Taupos a very cool place - I would definitely recommend at least 3 days there. It has lots of free walks and stuff to do.
