Dear Sir or Madam,

I am trying to get some advice about getting the best out of visiting Wanaka Lakes, as I am planning on visiting your area at the end of February for a fortnight, from the fourteenth to the twenty-eighth.

First of all, what accommodation can you recommend? I am travelling alone and do not have a car, so I’d like something central to the town, at a mid range price if possible. Somewhere near a bus route would be good, too.

Also, are there any special events on between the dates I will be there? I have heard that there is a market on the 20th of the month, but I was wondering if there’s anything else going on? I am interested in most things, but would like to plan my trip as much as possible to get the most out of my stay.

Thanks for your time.

Paul Brown
