Time to be proud Kiwis! New Zealand has officially been named the WORLD’S BEST COUNTRY!

More than 90,000 people voted for their favourite destinations and travel companies for the Telegraph Travel Awards – honouring New Zealand with the World’s Best Country title.

The runners up were South Africa and the Maldives. Cape Town won the best city category.

Prime Minister, John Key, said that he believes New Zealand’s tourism success is due to our country living up to the hype, providing tourists with an experience “that is better than the brochure.”

Around $600 million has been invested by the Government in New Zealand’s tourism and promotion since 2008.

This is the 3rd year in a row that NZ has won the Best Country title and the head of Telegraph Travel believes it is because New Zealand offers almost everything travellers want.

NZ may be small, but I guess this proves that great things really do come in small packages!!
