Christchurch is my home town so a little biased, probably drops in the rankings with the earthquakes but probably more interesting for visitors.

Not many towns get to do a "do-over" of their CBD, most cities are a semi organised mess they have to live with. Give it 10 years and she will be the best small city in the southern hemisphere imo, what a shame I don't work in construction :P

Right now id pick Wellington, similar size so still has a good community about it, lots to do.

Christchurch is being modernized so much because of the rebuilding of many old infrastructures. Christchurch is stepping its game finally. Wellington is a beautiful city too, and has more to offer than Christchurch but Christchurch feels much more open for many.

Surprised about some of the cities that didn't make it. Napier/Hastings is the favourite on the North Island and Timaru comes a close second on the south (after Dunedin).

There are so many charming small cities in New Zealand! I think Dunedin and Christchurch are my favorites, of the one I have been to anyway. I hope the reconstruction in Christchurch is going well!

I've only really been to Christchurch and Dunedin (I lived in Auckland when I was a baby though). Both are charming cities, Christchurch feels a bit like England, especially around Cathedral square and the river. Dunedin seems similar to say St. John's, Newfoundland with lots of quaint old houses.

Queenstown isn't on the list either.
