Which of the three is the best attraction - Te Puia, Waiotapu or Waikite? Or are they all too different?
I've not been to the other two but Wai-o-tapu is a favorite of mine. The colours along the edges of the lakes are wonderful. And the geyser goes off regularly every morning (after washing powder and a large towel are used!) around 10:15am.
Waiotapu - by a long shot.
The only other geothermal site I consider similarly spectacular is Orakei Korako, further south, closer to Taupo.
