Auckland City is a former municipality that covers the Auckland isthmus and most of the Islands in the Gulf, in the North Island of New Zealand. Auckland City is the most populous city in the country, and has the largest Polynesian population of any city in the world. Auckland's urban area is Waiwera in the North, Kumeu in the North East and Runciman in the South. Auckland City is one of the few cities in the world that has two separate ports, Manukau Harbour and Waitemata Harbour. Auckland has a subtropical climate, with hot, humid summers and mild, humid winters.

One of Auckland's nickname is, "the city of sails", which reflects the great interest of sailing in the region. Many of Auckland's beaches are patrolled by surf life saving clubs, and the West Coast has popular surf locations such as Piha and Muriwai's Beach.

A series of art events will be held in Auckland, as Auckland Festival, Auckland and New Zealand International Comedy Festival and the New Zealand International Film Festival. Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra is the city's and the region's full-time Symphony Orchestra. They arrange a separate series of concerts and its opera and Ballet. Events like the feirre the city's cultural diversity is the Pasifika Festival, the lantern festival Auckland and the Polyfest, which is the largest of its kind in New Zealand.

There are so infinitely much to see and to experience in Auckland that it is not possible to pick out something special here.
