Naturally New Zealand exhibition at Changi Airport

A few weeks ago, we were invited to Changi Airport to take an epic trip to Middle Earth but was unable to share our experience earlier as we joined the rest in the National Mourning for the lost of our founding father of modern Singapore Mr Lee Kuan Yew (1923 - 2015).  We thought we would disappoint our readers when we shared our post now whenr the event has ended on 5th April 2015 but lo and behold!  It's extended till 19 April 2015!

The Naturally New Zealand exhibition features two facets of exhilarating New Zealand - Middle-earth and the modern New Zealand. 

Fans of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies can explore the Hobbit Holte, meet Gandalf the Grey as he stands guard over The One Ring and learn about the various scenic terrains that make up The Shire, Erebor and Bobbiton Woods.

Having created the first Hobbit Hole in London specifically for the world premiere of the final film in The Hobbit Trilogies in December 2014, the one you see here is the second authentic version out of Matamata.

Click here to watch how the Hobbit Hole was built in 10 days, featuring more than 40 types of plants & real props from the Hobbiton!

On the other side you can enjoy snippet of modern New Zealand where popular sports such as rugby, golf and cycling are featured.

We had a great time hitting some golf balls at the mini golf range.  There are some stuffs we did there too but did not manage to take a photo because we were just too busy exploring!

Be sure to head down to Changi Airport, level 2 of Terminal 3 to explore a little bit of New Zealand and redeem exclusive souvenirs.

I'm sure you will be thrilled that the year 2015 is significant for New Zealand and Singapore as the two nations commemorate 50 years of diplomatic relations and the return of Air New Zealand to the direct route.  So, check out the exciting travel offers at the travel booths there and plan for your next holiday with the family!  

Here are some of the more exciting things you have to do when you are at the Naturally New Zealand exhibition.
