Most Kiwis will tell you Auckland is the least impressive thing to see in New Zealand (let's face it, they may be right!), but it is a major air gateway and is still a vibrant city to visit. It's harbour is beautiful and a great place for sailing and dolphin viewing, whilst the Viaduct district is a brilliant place to eat and party into the night. The highlight of my trip there however was the Auckland War Memorial Museum, which houses not only a impressive collection of Kiwi war time memorabilia, but a truely amazing collection of Maori cultural artifacts as well. The huge Maori Waka (war canoe) is truly a sight to behold. New Zealanders in general are a friendly people and I love visiting their country. Great local food, excellent wines, and amazing natural wilderness areas make it a favourite regular destination for my family.
