Pristine New Zealand

May 31, 2010 — Leave a comment

Fresh from our visit to neighboring Australia, we headed to Auckland in New Zealand.  Basically New Zealand and Australia, more or less share the same custom restrictions.  I find New Zealand more of a nature lovers paradise, as it looks so pristine.

Sky Tower Auckland

We stayed at the Heritage Auckland, which is a great old style hotel.  Plus the hotel is near The Sky Tower Hotel & Casino.  Upon completing the formalities, we went to The Sky Tower.  We went to the viewing deck, and saw almost the whole of Auckland.  My son was so happy feeling like he was on top of the world, as seen in this photo.  We also happen to meet up with my wife’s friend from college/university.  After our little adventure, we went back to the hotel.  I briefly spoke with the concierge and asked him what other attractions can one do in Auckland? He told me there were a lot of attractions to be had in Auckland, such as swim with the dolphins, nature hike, harbour tour, mountain bungee, and a lot more.

Harbour Tour Auckland

The next day we decided that the best attraction, which we could do as a family is the harbour tour.  We toured the Auckland Harbour, as the picture show.  After this we were treated to the Haka, a traditional dance of the Maori, the native people of New Zealand. After this we had to go back to the hotel and pack, as we have to catch our evening flight back to Hong Kong.

We promised ourselves, that next time that we come to New Zealand, we would stay longer, and visit more attractions.
