大家去那家店,可以要求book哪位明星住過的房,還有看vo他們給酒店寫的留名冊喔。

Stay overnight at the Powderhorn Chateau in Ohakune. Many of the "Lord of the Rings" actors (including Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood and Viggo Mortensen) stayed at this boutique hotel during filming, and you can request the room of your favorite star, and see what they wrote in the guestbook.

Weekend: New Zealand as Middle-Earth
By AMANDA WILLIAMS

It's a land of rugby fans and rugged sheep farmers. Untouched white-sand beaches and snow-dusted mountain peaks. Bubbling mud pools and a budding, laid-back tourism industry.

And somewhere, someone is probably running around in a hobbit cloak.

New Zealand is not your average eco-friendly South Pacific destination. It is also the home of Middle-Earth in Peter Jackson's award-winning "Lord of the Rings" movie trilogy. And the country is setting up to reprise its role as Tolkien's land of hobbits and elves in Guillermo del Toro's adaptation of "The Hobbit," which is poised to start filming later this year.

So, for all those "Ringers" interested in getting a peek at New Zealand as Middle-Earth, here is a sampling of the must-sees, from top to bottom.

NORTH ISLAND

Most New Zealand adventures will start in Auckland, the country's largest city with its largest international airport. Located in the northern part of the north island, Auckland is a great jumping off point for your Middle-Earth adventure.

Sign up for a day trip to Matamata with Red Carpet Tours, and visit The Shire -- quite literally. Your "Rings"-savvy guide, Vic James, will transport you through the rolling New Zealand hills to the Alexander farm, which doubled as Hobbiton in Jackson's trilogy. New hobbit holes are currently being built for "The Hobbit," and the facades of 17 old ones still remain nestled in the hillsides. Climb inside Bag End, and have a dance underneath the Party Tree.

From Auckland, head south, taking the "Desert Road" (State Highway 1) through Tongariro National Park. Even just from the road, you can catch glimpses of the park's three volcanoes, Mount Tongariro, Mount Ngauruhoe and Mount Ruapehu. It was on the slopes of Mount Ruapehu that Frodo and Sam first met Gollum, and also where some of the Mordor scenes were filmed. Not far away, the conical Mount Ngauruhoe doubled as Mount Doom in the "Rings" trilogy.

Stay overnight at the Powderhorn Chateau in Ohakune. Many of the "Lord of the Rings" actors (including Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood and Viggo Mortensen) stayed at this boutique hotel during filming, and you can request the room of your favorite star, and see what they wrote in the guestbook.

Next it's on to Wellington. Affectionately nicknamed "Wellywood" by the locals, Wellington is at the heart of the New Zealand film industry. After taking in the views of Lambton Harbor and Oriental Bay, head up Mount Victoria to the "Get off the road" spot where the hobbits hid from the Black Riders in "Fellowship of the Ring." And while you're there, be sure to make your way to the Mount Vic lookout for stunning views of the city and harbor.

Next visit the Miramar neighborhood, and stop in to the Weta Cave. Right down the street from where creative director Richard Taylor has his office at Weta Workshop, the Weta Cave is both a retail outlet and "Rings" experience. Watch a 20-minute video on the work Weta has done, and then take home a souvenir or two.

Perhaps catch a flick at The Embassy Theater on Courtenay Place in downtown Wellington. The theater was refurbished in time to hold the world premiere of "Return of the King" in 2003, and now includes an upscale bar and jazz club.

Grab a bite to eat at the Green Parrot at the end of Taranaki Street, one of actor Viggo Mortensen's favorites. Then check out the live music at Molly Malone's on Courtenay Place (a favorite haunt of actor Sean Bean's). Or grab dinner and a drink at The Matterhorn on lively Cuba Street, where the hobbit actors liked to hang out.

Before leaving the Wellington area, head out to Seaview in Lower Hutt and have the Stansborough Experience. The Stansborough factory was responsible for many of the textiles and cloaks used in the "Rings" trilogy, and today offers a tour, history lesson and retail outlet.

Before leaving the north island, head out into the Wairarapa wine region and to the secluded Putangirua Pinnacles. Situated within one of New Zealand's many scenic reserves, the pinnacles are an eerie example of badlands erosion. This site was used for filming of the Dimholt Road on the way to the Paths of the Dead.

SOUTH ISLAND

Next it's off to the south island and a marked change in scenery. Say goodbye to rolling green hills, and hello to the Southern Alps. I suggest hopping on the Interislander Ferry, which will transport you from Wellington through the scenic Cook Strait to the town of Picton. From here you can travel down the east coast to Christchurch.

Known for its churches and gardens, Christchurch is a city really worth exploring. But if you're solely concerned with "Lord of the Rings" experiences, sign up for a tour to Edoras with Hassle Free Tours. You'll head out into the Canterbury Region to the Mount Potts Sheep Station in Erewhon. Nestled in the center of a ring of craggy mountains sits Mount Sunday, the rocky outcrop upon which the set for the Rohan city of Edoras was built.

You'll take a bumpy 4-wheel-drive ride across mountain rivers, right to the foot of Mount Sunday. Then you'll hike up the hill, where you can pretend that you're Eowyn standing on the steps of Meduseld, the wind whipping through your hair.

From Christchurch, head across the south island to New Zealand's "adventure capital," Queenstown. Located on the shore of Lake Wakatipu in the Otago Region, Queenstown lies nestled at the base of the Remarkables mountain range. Activity options in Queenstown are many and varied, with plenty of adrenaline-inducing opportunities incorporating "Lord of the Rings" twists.

Take a helicopter flight up into the Southern Alps, which doubled at times as the Misty and White mountains. As you fly over snow-covered peaks, imagine the "lighting of the beacons" scene from "Return of the King." Or you can fly to Skipper's Canyon, where the "flight to the Ford of Bruinen" scene was filmed. You can also get to the canyon by land by signing up for a 4-wheel "Rings" journey with Nomad Safaris.

Head up the lake to Glenorchy and go horse trekking on one of Dart Stables' "Ride of the Rings," where you'll get to see where they filmed some Isengard scenes, along with some spectacular views. If you're lucky, maybe you'll even get paired with a horse that starred in the trilogy.

And, of course, no trip to Queenstown would be complete without some true New Zealand adventure sports. Channel the daredevil mentality of Orlando Bloom and sign up for a bungy jump at the Kawarau Bridge in Queenstown (where bungy jumping originated), a jetboat ride down the Shotover River or parasailing over Lake Wakatipu.

End the day with a ride up the Skyline Gondola for a bird's eye view of Queenstown.
