Following the 2010-2011 earthquakes, Christchurch has re-emerged as a vibrant, ever-changing city that Lonely Planet has listed it as one of the top 10 cities to visit in 2013.
The rebuild of the central city continues but this is a truly unique time to visit the city and witness the changes happening every day.
