In addition, the country is also home to great metropolitan cities, dynamic Māori culture, and amazing wine and food. 

In recent years, medical tourism in New Zealand has been growing steadily. Many international medical tourists are traveling to the country to take advantage of the top quality and competitively priced medical treatments at the leading medical centers.
