3. Auckland, New Zealand
With its 1,400,000 residents, Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand. It is often referred to as the “City of Sails” as a result of the great number of yachts in its harbor. Here you can indulge into the amazing view of the sea and the sailing ships or you can stretch your legs on some of the perfect white beaches in the township of Orewa. The natural thermal springs at the Waiwera Thermal Resort are a perfect place to relax after your busy day of sightseeing.
