ขออภัยค่ะ หน้านี้ยังไม่มีการแปลเป็นภาษาของคุณ

    Some of the best things to do in Auckland highlight its vibrant Maori community, waterfront seafood restaurants and bars, as well as a dazzling skyline. Nestled in a bay on the North Island, the city faces the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Tasman Sea.

    What Auckland lacks in natural wonder tourist attractions — no small feat in nature-rich New Zealand — it more than makes up for with manmade sightseeing attractions and a truly vibrant sense of life that illuminates many of the city's interesting spaces. From catching a rugby match at Eden Park to taking a tour of the famous Town Hall building, we’ve gathered some of the many things Auckland is most famous for in this convenient list.

    Start the day at Aotea Square

    Aotea Square’s spacious and open-air space allows for weekly farmer’s markets to take place here as well, where you’ll be able to find plenty of fresh fruit, unique clothing, and local art.

    Attend a sporting event at Eden Park

    Watch a rugby match at a world-famous stadium
