Auckland is located in the North Island of New Zealand, and is the largest urban area in the country. The Māori-language name for Auckland is Tāmaki , meaning “Tāmaki with a hundred lovers”, in reference to the desirability of its fertile land at the hub of waterways in all directions. One of Auckland’s nicknames, the “City of Sails”, is derived from the popularity of sailing in the region.
Auckland is classified as a Beta + World City because of its importance in commerce, the arts, and education. The University of Auckland, established in 1883, is the largest university in New Zealand. Landmarks such as the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, the Harbour Bridge, the Sky Tower, and many museums, One Hill Domaine park, restaurants, and theatres are among the city’s significant tourist attractions.
The most enjoyable feature of Auckland is its sky and cloud, just like other parts of New Zealand, pure, fresh and clean. It is always a pleasure to watch the sky both daytime and nighttime. However, don’t forget to put enough sun scream, the UV is extremely strong here!
