Pictures from tourist attractions in South Island of New Zealand: Christchurch Re:Start Mall, Fox Glacier and Tasman Glacier.

Re:Start Mall at Christchurch in New Zealand
Re:Start Mall at Christchurch in South Island of New Zealand.

Christchurch is the main city in South Island of New Zealand. It was struck by dramatic earthquakes in September 2010, February 2011 and June 2011. These earthquakes, especially that of February 2011, destroyed most of the buildings of the city's main shopping center (City Mall). The stores reopened in containers in October 2011 on a provisional basis. The mall was then called Re:Start.

The situation persists successfully. The bizarre aspect of this mall attracts even foreign tourists. A project to close the northern part of the Re:Start Mall in 2014 in order to give way to new buildings aroused strong opposition so that that part was moved to the south instead of being closed.

Fox Glacier in New Zealand
Fox Glacier in South Island, New Zealand.

Fox Glacier is a 13 km long glacier which is located on the west coast of South Island in New Zealand. Like nearby Franz Josef Glacier, it has the advantage of being one of the most easily accessible glaciers in the world. Its terminal face can be reached after a half hour hike from the nearest village, Fox Glacier Village.

Tasman Glacier in New Zealand

Tasman Glacier is the largest glacier in New Zealand. It has a length of 24 kilometers. It receded a few kilometers in recent years. Tasman Glacier is located in the Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park, part of Te Wāhipounamu, an UNESCO World Heritage site.
