Take a trip across the largest lake on South Island to go down a deep cave on a small boat, very impressive, but even more so when you get to see the glow worms. Unfortunately, no cameras as the flash will upset these delicate insects.
The ferry ride across is really good if the sun's going down. Wear a sweater, at least, as the cave can be cool.
In "Fjordland" south of Milford Sound
Some really good bars, especially the Alice May, and restaurants and the perfect place to set off and climb a glacier - save the carbon footprint by not using the chopper - it's much more satisfying to get to the top by your own power, helped of course by very good guides. Don't forget to buy the T-shirt.
A really good buzzing little town on the West coast of S.Island.
A very good regional gallery & museum. A couple of very good Landseer's overlook the cafe's interior. Seeing the paintings by John Martin (a local) is worth the visit alone; also, a good walk around of Newcastle's history. Family friendly.
New Bridge Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8AG.
On the "Blue Carpet" at the bottom of John Dobson Street. Five minutes walk eastwards from Monument Metro.

An incredible Indian restaurant in a city where there are more than a few. Absolutely wonderful service and the food is superb. Best to book, especially at weekends, but the staff are so good they'll try to cram you in at most other times.

It's a short walk from Partick Station.
A very Singaporean shopping experience in the local markets. Have a Tiger and some noodles from the local eateries while you're there - very worhwhile.
Don't forget to visit Raffles for a Singapore Sling; I know it's very touristy but you'll regret it if you don't do it. The food is excellent as well.
Nowhere is too far to walk in Singapore because of the experience, just make sure you have plenty of bottled water with you. The new (2005) shuttle bus service around the city is fantastic, buy a "hop on-hop off" ticket; they stop near all the major sites, then you can walk some more.
A wonderful garden filled with marvellous statues and scenarios telling old historical & legendary tales from the Singaporean past.
MRT to Buona Vista and then the bus to the Villa. After the villa head to Holland Village for refreshments and shopping.
Catch the boat for a view of the city from the Singapore River - have a complete round trip or get off and have a walk.
From Boat Quay, after you've eaten at one of the many outdoor eateries - steer clear of the Chilli crab.
For eating, drinking & a great gallery in The Baltic. It's not necessary to use the Quayside Link as the walk from Grey's Monument down Grey Street and Dean Street to The Side passes some of the finest architecture in Britain, never mind England. There are also a few good pubs and some excellent restaurants on the way to the quay and at the bottom on the right-hand side you will find the wonderful "Side Gallery"
An excellent noodle restaurant & bar. Lots of different noodles which will suit European palates a little more than the spicier native flavours.Then walk across China square towards the river and look out of the public statuary.
China Square, Chinatown.
