Where to find the best restaurants in Auckland

Auckland’s glitzy Viaduct Harbor area is full of fancy restaurants offering high-class dining experiences – from seafood dining rooms with fresh oyster bars to authentic and elegantly decorated Asian eateries. If Asian food does take your fancy, eat in the prosperous Parnell neighborhood, where you’ll find luxury sushi bars. You’ll discover a few gourmet bistros here, too.

The most popular things to do in Auckland

History buffs will love the Auckland War Memorial Museum, a vast white stone Neo-Classical building housing seemingly-endless exhibits ranging from military and natural history to Maori artifacts and treasures. Architecture enthusiasts, meanwhile, can’t miss Auckland’s modern architectural marvel – the Sky Tower. This futuristic, 60-story-tall spear-shaped tower boasts a panoramic observation deck and upscale revolving restaurant. After, venture out to the green-washed Mount Eden, an Auckland suburb crowned by a volcanic cone – stroll the cone’s flower-rich and waterfall-kissed gardens to the summit, and enjoy sweeping city views. Art fiends, on the other hand, can get inspired at the Auckland Art Gallery, a central French Renaissance building boasting fruitful displays of local and international art – it frequently hosts highly-rated traveling exhibitions, too.

Best ways to get around Auckland

Auckland boasts an expansive public transport network of trains, buses, and ferries, which are integrated and accessible on purchasing an AT HOP card – a top-up and reusable ticket. If public transport’s not for you, hire your own car at one of Auckland’s many trusted rentals – the city’s wide, roomy roads are very car-friendly. For a truly regal means of Auckland city transport, get around via private chauffeur – there are several companies in the city – or make use of your 5-star hotel’s limo/town car service.
