Most of the population of New Zealand live in and around the city of Auckland but New Zealand is not known for its cities. I spent about a week in Auckland total on three different stops. It's a cute little city to spend a day or two in but I wouldn't concentrate a trip to NZ in the city.

Auckland is a busy modern city with an amazing array of things to do, see and experience. Stunning natural beauty mixes well with the sophistication of 21st century urban hub.

This is the biggest city in all of New Zealand with 1.5 million people. Home to the University of Auckland, AUT as well as museums and cultural centres this is the place to go. As it's not representative of the whole country do make your way out to the country where things are more beautiful!

Auckland City is on New Zealand's North Island. We visited close to Christmas season so the CBD has Christmas decorations and Christmas lights on the evening adding to the charm of the city. The city feels most like a major town centre than a major capital because it is relaxed and tranquil. So what are the best things to do whilst in Auckland? I think visiting the various Islands such as Waiheke, Rangitoto which are within 1hr ferry ride from Auckland for day trips. Spending an afternoon and evening walking on the Viaduct as the sun sets, exploring the CBD one night and try different cuisines such as Japanese, Korean, Mexican, Moroccan. Grab a drink or two at the wharf side pubs. Or go sailing on the harbour on a day with good weather. There is definitely more to Auckland than meets the eye, you just have to make the most of your experience and stay at this relaxed city.

Auckland is a sprawling, modern city. The central business district feels generically urban, but a few neighbourhoods are worth exploring like Ponsonby and Parnell. Get the ferry to Devonport for great views across Auckland harbor or take a day trip out to Waiheke Island.
