"K'Rd - Super cool but super seedy" Auckland Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Brasil_Boy

Auckland Warnings and Dangers: 21 reviews and 11 photos

Auckland is a beautiful city,and tops places like Sydney in cleanliness and nightlife - HOWEVER,don't get too cocky being in such a "safe" place. Streets such as K'Rd and Fort Street are quite funky by day,with designer shops and many alleyways of stalls,but at night they become seedy.The sidestreets of K'Rd are jam packed with prostitutes - trannies,female and male - and drug dealers,homeless and gangs looking for trouble.Childs play compared to other major cities,but people can be fooled by Auckland's initial level of safeness.Also be cautious around Aotea Square,which attracts drunks.But Auckland rocks!
