Have you ever been to Auckland? The largest city in New Zealand has plenty to offer. Whether you’re seeking adventure, leisure, sightseeing, or some family fun, Auckland has everything set up for you. All you have to do is pack up your bags and prepare yourself for an exciting escapade.
I used to live in Auckland and since I went back to my home country for good, I had been there three times for vacations. I love the city and its surrounding. It may not be as vibrant as Sydney or Melbourne, but it has enough perks to keep travellers entertained. There are more than enough restaurants, from cheap to the steeply priced, covering all kinds of dishes: Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Turkish, Arabians, Indians, you name it. There are shopping districts offering casual to high-end fashion pieces. And if you’re looking to buy souvenirs, the main street in Auckland CBD, Queen Street, has different shops lined up for you.
Auckland has an array of accommodation options: backpackers, motels, motor inns, hotels, and bed-and-breakfast. Whatever your need is and how big (or small) your budget is, there’s bound to be a perfect place for you.
Over the course of the next few days, I’ll share with you my personal guide to Auckland. Bear in mind I am no travel expert, so do more research before your actual travel. My guide will be based on my own travel experiences, the things I did that worked well for me. If you’ve been to Auckland and you want to add your own suggestions or share your own travel experiences, please leave your comment below. I’d love to hear from you.
