New Zealand’s harbor side city is Auckland. It is the one true cosmopolitan and the vivacious economic heart of the country. Popularly known as the "City of Sails," Auckland sprawls out in helter-skelter fashion amidst the Waitemata Harbour on the east and the Manukau Harbour on the west and a compact central city district which lies right besides the waterway.
For almost every visitor who comes to New Zealand on a holiday, Auckland is the point of arrival. More so spending a few days soaking up the outdoor and the cultural tourist attractions of the city should be on the to do list of every visitor.
The museums, monuments and the art galleries of the Auckland are believed to be the finest in the country. Fascinating suburban coastline of the city is dotted with the islands of the Hauraki Gulf and the fine beaches which offer a taste of the spectacular national park scenery of the New Zealand right from the doorstep of the city.
The nature delights on offer in Auckland, go beyond the beautiful waters. Thermal springs, volcanic cones, rainforests and the sprawling parks are just the start. To explore deeper and within, you really must come here flying.
