New Zealand: Hobbiton Movie Set

If you've watched Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit before (who hasn't?), you probably noticed the cute little Hobbit houses with the colorful round doors in the movies. WELL, you can actually visit the set of this place in real life in New Zealand! And it is HUGE. During my visit to NZ last year, I had the chance to have a tour around the place. Mind you, as magical as the place looks in photos, in real life its a really touristy place because we had to go in by groups of 30 or so people and there was about 5-6 of these groups touring the place all at once.

If you are not the type of person to take photos or if you are the type of person who hates tours and prefer to venture on your own - this is not for you. I overheard a few of the tourist say that the tour wasn't worth their money so to each their own. I am a lover of pretty things, and this place is pretty darn pretty to me so personally..I liked the place. You are not allowed to go into the hobbit house, except for one (for pictures sake). But there is literally nothing inside that one house because well - it IS just a movie set. 

I hope you enjoy my photos! I took them with an iPhone 6 and edited it using photoshop. As you can see, the hobbit houses are unique as the doors are painted in their own colors and they all have different style in front of their houses. Also, I am just in love at the flowers in this beautiful country. I will be posting 3 other separate blog post to document my NZ trip because I took so much photos and I want to share it with you guys because I know some of you have been reading my blog since the very beginning and its also my main digital platform for me to keep my memories.

This reminds me of the Enid Blyton books that I used to read as a child.
It also reminds me of the Secret Garden movie I used to watch too.

My cousin took this amazing photo. Ada bakat jadi hobbit ka?

Hobbiton is also a good place to take product photos too. The only thing is time constraints because you have to follow your tour group at all times. I loved the outcomes of the Love, Lusie product photos that I have managed to take.

I was so excited to take this photo lol

These are props around the place. Hobbits have jobs too you know! Fish monger hobbits, cheese seller hobbits, hobbit  housewife etc

I made a three part post about our family trip to New Zealand in December 2016.
