Waitomo glowworm caves are a must see for any traveler, and were featured in Quora's 27 Surreal Places to Visit Before You Die.

Hobbiton Movie Set

Discover the real Middle-earth on the most picturesque private farmland near Matamata in the North Island of New Zealand, where you can visit the Hobbiton Movie Set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogy in a fascinating guided tour.

The set has been completely rebuilt and can be seen just as it appeared in the films.
