Stroll through the streets of Rotorua, voted New Zealand's most beautiful city six times, and instantly feel like you have entered another world; where hot steam escapes from cracks in the road, back gardens come with their own natural mineral hot pool and the pungent aroma of sulphur exotically permeates the air.
