Although Auckland is the largest and the most populous city in New Zealand, it’s not the capital of the country. Surprising, isn’t it? It’s also one of the best tourist destinations in New Zealand.
When to head to Auckland?
Auckland gets super busy during the summers (from December to February). Then, there’s Fall from March to May, and this is also a good time to visit the destination. The weather will be slightly warm, but things can be pretty cheap.
Staying in Auckland
Many famous hotel brands the likes of Minor Hotels have their properties established in Auckland. So, there’s nothing to worry about Auckland accommodation, no matter what type of package you are looking for.
Getting around in Auckland
Auckland’s public transportation system includes busses, local commuter trains, and ferries. They offer cheap transportation options, even for foreigners. In addition to these, there are taxis and bicycles (for short rides) too.
Things to see and do
If you are on a family vacation, visit the Auckland Zoo that’s home to over 1000 animals. Explore the Hauraki Gulf, Sheepworld, the Howick Historical Village, and the Muriwai Gannet Colony when you are there.
