New Zealand is part of the infamous Ring of Fire, where volcanic activity is intense, which can sometimes cause horrible earthquakes. However, it creates otherworldly scenery that makes you wonder if you’re really on planet Earth.
One of the best places to see the geysers and hot springs is Rotorua. It’s a city with a distinct and somewhat unpleasant smell of rotten eggs from the sulfur in the air.
Another option is going to Hot Water Beach in the Coromandel Peninsula. At Hot Water Beach, you can dig a hole in the sand and it fills up with hot water.
