The Hobbit’s Journey

What can I say besides grateful that I could finally visit one of my bucket list country, New Zealand?

This post will be specific talk about one of my journey in New Zealand. Experience the real Middle-earth™ at the Hobbiton™ Movie Set

Here is from their official web :

Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the unequivocal beauty of the land, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance. Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made.

You will be fully guided around the 12-acre set; past Hobbit Holes™, the Mill and into the world-famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you will be presented with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverage to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.

We depart from MataMata I-Site. The I-site easy to find, we park our car and re-registration. We booked the ticket in Jakarta, just in case.

I believe most of you, have watched The Lord of The Rings movie many times. And the movie set as good as its look on the movie. OMG.


The weather was perfect. The blue sky, a green green grass, hobbit hole.

The sunshine so bright

We take approximately 2 hours to enjoy the site. The tour guide really nice, he waits patiently while the group tour taking a (lot of) picture. He thanks us because bring the sun along 😀
