Some time alone can be healthy. If you’re planning to travel and see the world, what better way than visiting Auckland? In this part of NZ, there are many sites to see and activities to enjoy.
Metropolitan Rentals says that you can even rent a car, so you have your own transportation while travelling. Being in a tour group can limit your exploration time and the places you can go to. Having your own car will give you more travel time.
Here are the top places and activities you can enjoy in Auckland:
Discover Local Culture
There are many ways on how you can discover New Zealand’s culture. You can visit museums, galleries, wineries, heritage and cultural attractions, and more. Visit the Auckland Museum to see the largest collection of treasures from the local Maori people. Go to the Auckland Art Gallery, which features traditional and contemporary art. You can also hire a guide from a local tribe to help you explore and better understand the Maori culture.
Explore the Sea without Getting Wet
New Zealand is located in the Pacific. For this reason, the sea plays a huge part in the country’s identity as a whole. You can visit the New Zealand Maritime Museum to learn more about the country’s maritime history, as it features the great migration of Polynesians to New Zealand and the European discovery of the islands.
Spend Some “Me Time” with the Flowers
Auckland has some of the most stunning gardens in the Pacific islands. There’s the Parnell Rose Gardens, Cornwall Park, and the vast Auckland Botanic Gardens. To get to these places, it is a good idea to rent a vehicle. You can spend some quality time there alone for reflection or simply enjoy the flowers and the trees.
The Parnell Rose Gardens have an exquisite collection of plants and flowers, as well. Wander in the vast Auckland Botanic Gardens and get lost among the trees and enjoy their scenic beauty. You can also enjoy shopping, experiencing wildlife encounters, visiting wineries, and doing water activities.
In Auckland, you won’t run out of things to do. Who knows, next time you can invite your family or friends over since you’ve experienced its beauty firsthand.
