Get up early, see the harbor, stroll K Road ... and if you can, catch a rugby game, venture to the shore of the Tasman Sea, and dine at the top of the Sky Tower. Get the most out of this beautiful city on a perfect Auckland day.

8-14 Madden St, Auckland, Wynyard Quarter 1010, New Zealand
First developed when the city hosted the Rugby World Cup in 2011, the harborside Wynyard Quarter has quickly become a favorite destination for Aucklanders. Restaurants, cafés, and bars are especially popular on weekends—standouts...

146 Karangahape Rd, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
K Road should only be explored on foot—in fact, that should be a local bylaw. If you're into the alternative scene you'll completely love it; if not you'll completely marvel at it. Whichever camp you fall into you'll need to take a break halfway...
Save Place
Waitemata Harbour, New Zealand
The gateway into Auckland in the Waitemata Harbour. Sprawling along the downtown area, and traversed by the Auckland Harbour Bridge (which you can climb if you're feeling adventurous), it's a good reminder of how close Auckland is to the sea. Here...

95 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby, Auckland 1011, New Zealand
On a perfect Auckland day you will have time to shop. Down some wooden stairs near the pedestrian mall of Vulcan Lane lies The Vault Designer Store. It's like a secret within a secret, with only a special few knowing about the goodies hidden...

Giapo Gelato removes all doubt that good ice cream does indeed come from the heavens. This Queen St store does amazing things with ice cream - NZ Sauvignon Blanc flavour anyone? I know it's a treat and I know it should only be had occasionally but...

Reimers Ave, Kingsland, Auckland 1024, New Zealand
If there is one sporting event you must go to in Auckland it is an All Blacks game at Eden Park. You get bonus points if they are playing against the Springboks (South Africa) or the Wallabies (Australia) but any international rugby game will do....

27 Galway St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
On Friday nights the basement here is a haven from the madness swirling in the main bar above. I drink a Hendrick’s martini with an olive: dry and clean, not dirty. Stirred not shaken. James Bond can take his vodka shaker elsewhere....
