Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is known as City of Sails and located on the North Island. The city is surrounded by water on three sides and visitors may be surprised to learn that it is built on top of a volcanic field. When visiting Auckland, visitors often choose to go sailing, shopping, visit museums, or head to the beach. It usually takes 1 day to see Auckland's major attractions such as the Sky Tower and Auckland Central Park. For those looking for an escape from the city, the multitude of islands nearby are a good choice.
