Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra recalls his New Zealand escapades to the Pune media

During his visit to Pune, Bollywood actor and Tourism New Zealand Brand Ambassador, Sidharth Malhotra shared memories from his second New Zealand journey.

From thrilling Harley bike rides with cricketers Stephen Fleming and Brendon McCullum and time spent at Te Puia and Mitai Maori Village to adrenaline-pumping activities like the Auckland bridge climb, jet boating, luge riding and zip lining; Sidharth showcased his escapades through a video encapsulating his 10-day visit to the country. The video showcased the actor’s journey through diverse experiences spanning Auckland, Rotorua, Hamilton Waikato and Christchurch & Canterbury regions.

Speaking at the event, Steven Dixon, Tourism New Zealand Regional Manager, South and South East Asia said, “India is a priority source market for Tourism New Zealand; we have witnessed steady growth from the market as Indian travellers are drawn to the beauty of our landscapes, the authenticity of our experiences and the warmth of our people.”

Talking about his last visit, Sidharth said, “New Zealand has so much to offer. I’ve been to the country twice now and every time I go, I have the opportunity to admire nature in all its glory at their stunningly beautiful locales. Though New Zealand has always been known for adventure sports and activities, there is so much more to it than that. With the innumerable experiences that New Zealand has to offer, I’d really encourage my fellow Indians to visit this ideal destination and experience it for themselves.”

In July this year, Tourism New Zealand commenced its new four year marketing strategy. The strategy focuses on attracting visitors to new regions, encouraging them to experience new and different activities, and working with the industry and government to improve the tourism experience for visitors. The strategy takes a long term approach to growing the value of international visitors.
