The city of sails, Auckland besides being the biggest city in New Zealand and home to more than 50 volcanoes, is also ranked as one of the top 5 cities to live in when it comes to quality of life. One of the coolest things about this place is the amazing hiking route from the Pacific Ocean to the Tasman Sea in only 4 hours.  It is 16km long and attracts thousands of tourists each year. If you are searching for high-quality dining, you will be happy to discover that Auckland has over 800 restaurants with many award-winning chefs from all over the world preparing delicious meals.

The sky tower offers an amazing panoramic view over the city and has many awesome bars and restaurants. For a real Auckland experience, there is the New Zealand Maritime Museum that includes 14 galleries and tells stories of the country’s maritime heritage. If you are on vacation with children, Kelly Tarlton’s Sea Life Aquarium with its friendly sea creatures such as penguins and sharks is a must-visit tourist spot. For a class in history in art, it is best to head out to the Auckland War Memorial Museum and the Auckland art gallery.
