Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Bus transportation in Queenstown could definitely be improved: long waits and if you are planning on going out at night you will have to take a cab, which are incredibly expensive. Queenstown is perfect if you like extreme sports: kayaking, bungy-jumping, sky-diving, safaris, zip lines (zip-line), kart (the luge), mountain biking and many more ... but yes, everything is quite expensive.
