Princes Wharf, 147 Quay St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
Drawing inspiration from Auckland’s sailing and maritime culture, the Hilton Auckland is all white and windows, jutting nearly 1,000 feet into the sea like a double-bowed cruiseliner. On one side, there’s Stanley Point and the Auckland...

Auckland, New Zealand
Every year in Western Springs, the Pacifika community comes together to celebrate its cultures, food, dancing, and singing at a multi-national festival. Auckland hosts the world's biggest Polynesian community, so from Niue to Tuvalu to Fiji to the...

Sky Tower, 72 - 78 Victoria St W, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
On a perfect day the sun will be glistening across the waters of the Hauraki Gulf as it slowly comes into view from your perch up high. Orbit Restaurant at the top of the Sky Tower is hundreds of feet in the air, and as it does a full revolution...

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....

12 Gore St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
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...

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...

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...

124 Oceanview Rd, Oneroa, Auckland 1081, New Zealand
A favourite with Waihekians, The Oyster Inn has already made an impression despite being relatively young. The islanders love the laid-back atmosphere, and even if you're coming from 'town' - like me - you'll be given a cheery welcome before you...

Queenstown, New Zealand
Arriving to Queenstown through Crown Range Road was quite amazing; I lost count on how many stops we’ve done to see Queenstown down there with Lake Wakatipu. Queenstown is located in New Zealand South Island, surrounded by awesome mountains and on...

Queenstown, New Zealand
Queenstown can often be a bit too busy for me (in comparison to Wanaka and other favorites), but it's understandable why it has so much foot traffic since it's the epicenter for adventure activities on the South Island of New Zealand. To find a...

Queenstown, New Zealand
Once considered a novelty, night skiing is now ever popular at such resorts as Coronet Peak near Queenstown in the South Island. Lit by floodlights, you can board or ski on Friday and Saturday nights from sunset until 9 p.m. and watch the lights...

Queenstown, New Zealand
Whether you're after a mulled wine at the bar or a soak in a tub, the après-ski culture in New Zealand is alive and growing. Every major ski area has a café and bar, and dancing to the beats of live DJs is a local requirement. If you’re winding...

14 Beach St, Queenstown 9300, New Zealand
There’s a little wine bar right in the heart of Queenstown that provides just about all the comforts of home. Complete with leather armchairs and fireplace, it’s a perfect place to take a wine tour of over 80 award wining New Zealand wines,...

While not a connoisseur of the movies, I appreciated the natural wonders we explored on a Lord of the Rings tour. From unsuccessfully mining for gold to four-wheeling a river, the tour ran the gamut from fast and furious to calm and serene. With...

Level 1, 50 Stanley Street, Queenstown Town Centre 9300, New Zealand
The lake and mountain landscape make Queenstown suited to all kinds of adventure. There’s skiing in the winter and activities such as bungee jumping, skydiving, canyon swinging, jet boating, horse trekking, and river rafting all year round. If...

17 Marine Parade, Queenstown 9300, New Zealand
My husband and I enjoyed our best dinner in Queenstown at the Botswana Butchery (named after the country of origin of its first chef). The restaurant has two seatings for dinner in the main dining room, at six and eight in the evening. Because we...

42 Shotover St, Queenstown 9300, New Zealand
We ate here for lunch on our honeymoon having heard about the hype. There was a line out the door, apparently there always is, and being from New York I typically avoid such places because it means they are pretty touristy. However, this line was...

The Blue Hanger, 10 Tex Smith Ln, Frankton, Queenstown 9371, New Zealand
Over the Top is just one of the many helicopter tour operators who will take you sightseeing, skiing, rafting, fishing, or to drive golf balls off a glacier, and at prices way below helicopter operators in the U.S.
