Discussing :: Most relaxing trip ever – Auckland – one of the world's best young cities

   Auckland is still growing up. It’s a vibrant New Zealand city on the move on the world destination stage. It may be about the same size in area as London but so much is new, exciting and changing.     There’s still the terribly small bumpy Pah Road from the airport into the city – no motorway into town here. The face of Auckland changes almost daily. London, Paris, Milan or most other big cities are pretty much as they were 30 years ago - -with a few more skyscrapers.   The beauty of Auckland is there is so much on in such a small CBD and harbour area. I put my feet up on the seating at nearby Eden Park... read full article

When you talk to a lot of people about Auckland and New Zealand you realise how prohibitively expensive the cost of living here is. I understand this is a positive article but this factor seriously needs to be considered.

What a great writeup and I hope that it will be read by lots of potential tourists. Auckland is a great place and is equal to most of the big cities of the world.

New Zealand is a wonderful place to visit and explore. I arrived in Auckland airport at 12:50 p.m. It was wonderful experience to travel on the roads towards symonds st in the night no traffic and lots of signals.Auckland city is very very beautiful and well maintained. I found every system is automatic you take any system take for instance you go to your office the lifts, main doors, cafetaria ,server room are all secured with best security system no intruder can enter into ur premises. I visited the Waiheke island with my collegues it was a wonderful experience to travel with your Boss n collegues. We took Ferry from auckland port to Waiheke Island. Once we reached there it was like heaven the beautiful scenery the pleasant weather the blue sky and warm winds feel like ur in heaven We visited all the wineyards and historic monuments it is a tunnel built during the Second world war to escape from enemy it was a wonderful system. on the way we could take some beautiful snaps of the scenery the open sky the sea shore and scenic beauty. We found one Indian restaurant that was the main center of attraction for us indians because we were struggling to eat some good veg indian food. We found one hyderabadi restaurant in Waiheke Island and had a wonderful dinner before coming to ferry station. I would like to add one more point here earlier to the visit my boss had a view that scotland is the heaven but once we reached waiheke island his view changed to it. Total cost of this Trip will be around $50 - $60 only per person I bet ''Heaven in the Earth is Waiheke Island''

Sorry Auckland is too spread out and the traffic is shocking and I couldn't care about sailing. Give me Wellington any day of the week.

I have never seen the two words 'Auckland' and 'relaxing' in the same sentence before so this article caught my eye. Perhaps the writer was visiting Auckland on a long weekend as most Aucklanders like to escape their natural habitat at these times and venture out into wider NZ. Perhaps that's the secret to a relaxing time in Auckland? I think the other secret is don't plan to be anywhere in Auckland at a specific time...you will just stress out while you are stuck in the traffic or completely lost.

Not everyone can enjoy laps at the Hyatt pool or access to the luxurious Hyatt's club lounge, but there are so much more to enjoy in Auckland that makes it one of the best cities to live in. I found that out personally when I moved up to Auckland!

A superb writup, and confirms what I already knew. Auckland actually rocks, for the most part. I moved here in 94 from the UK and never looked back. Actually that's bollocks, I went back in 99 for a friends wedding, um... ok and a trip to Amsterdam... but I've never looked back since!
