Auckland is an eclectic city spread over volcanic fields and comes with twin harbors. It lies in the country’s North Island, and it is a wonderful amalgamation of natural wonders and urbane activities. There are many other interesting things to do here. Head to Sky Tower, a popular landmark in the city that allows you to look at panoramic views of Viaduct Harbor from its observation tower. For a relaxing vacation, take a stroll in the oldest park in the city, Auckland Domain. You can also walk down the seaside promenade near downtown as you unwind at Mission Beach. If you are coming from Auckland Airport, the biggest airport in New Zealand, you might want a place where you can rest first before exploring. For a list of choices, read below for the top Airbnb vacation rentals near Auckland Airport, New Zealand.
