Queenstown - sunset over Lake Wakatipu

Sunset over Lake Wakatipu in the Central Otago region of New Zealand's is one of the most romantic locations to see a sunset that I've had the pleasure of seeing - as I hope this picture testifies.

Surrounded by mountains, including Mount Remarkable and Mount Eyre, the lake is a popular spot for sunset strolls, the Earnslaw cruises and evening dining.

Once you've visited and seen it you'll see why I rate New Zealand as even more beautiful than Switzerland
