We arrived in Rotorua proper around 4:30, giving me an hour or so to visit the free geothermal parks within walking distance of the hostels before the Maori hangi ceremony that night.
The dinner experience was pricy (and somewhat corny), but loads of fun. Our bus driver Florence was a total hoot, and the dinner itself was full of traditional Maori singing, dancing, the welcoming ceremony, a cultural village, and of course the hangi meal.
