Far more than a base camp for New Zealand exploration, the "City of 100 Lovers", as it is called in the Maori language, offers top-notch museums, scenic islands and a richly diverse cultural mix. Free City Circuit buses circle city-centre locations. Experience Maori influences at Auckland Museum, find Polynesian handicrafts at Otara Market or people-watch in bustling Ponsonby and Parnell. Outdoor enthusiasts will find a mélange of adventure, from kayaking and sailing to high-octane bungee jumping.
