This is our first visit to Christchurch, and we had not heard of Re-Start initiative. This is a City fighting back after a major earthquake. The "Shipping Container" shops looked a bit temporary and third world till you realised why it was there. The traders...More

Great food, great shopping. We loved roaming around Cashel Street. Inspired and impressed by how this area was developed and wish it could remain beyond its expiration date - when big buildings go back in. Loved, loved, loved.

Not the best idea for creating a shopping centre but the open air market stalls just next door were excellent

This is an interesting area with the mix of pop up and permanent shops. The area has been made alive and the sculptures are clever and amusing. A tribute to the people of Christchurch

Good little spots for shopping but I enjoyed some of the food that was available there more than anything else. The tram goes past there so it's a great stop off if you want a snack or perhaps feel like a bit of retail therapy.

This is a World-Class department store! Top shelf merchandise, beautifully displayed, and with a wonderful sales staff! Don't miss the Gourmet Department--you can get lost in the amazing selections of delicious sweet and savory items for hours!

What a great adaptation to adversity showing creativity and strength. Build quickly post earthquake but with a true unique character. The metal art sculptures are fun and well done. I hope this area remains as a living memorial long after the city is rebuilt. Spoiler...More
