  Auckland's Skytower
by ATXtraveler

There is no surprise that New Zealand's most popular tourist destination on Virtual Tourist is Auckland. Minutes after landing in Auckland, you can see that this may be in line for one of the nicest big cities in the world. Of course, the term big may be a little overstated, but it is still an international gateway city!

The City of Sails has a rich history of marine life, from the first settlers of Maori heritage, to the exploration of the Dutch, Colonization by the British, and now the unique mixtures of all the previous cultures. All of this is evidenced on the wharf, which is also a great place to meet VTers!

There are also great little pockets of history, shopping, nature, and community throughout the Auckland area!
