You’ve got to experience Auckland for yourself to understand why it is named the third most liveable city in the world.
Auckland is a vibrant melting pot of cultures considering that it is the largest Polynesian city in the world. And this is obviously manifested in its food, festivals, music, and art among many other aspects.
The city also boasts of a lot of local attractions – from regional parks to beaches and wildlife, to its rich cultural heritage. It is able to preserve its naturally awesome landscapes against the constant development to keep up with modern living and standards.
And the locals? Ask the immigrants who choose to make Auckland their home. They would unanimously say Kiwis are friendly, hospitable, and free-spirited. The locals have high regard for human rights and equality regardless of where you have come from.
Auckland’s population is composed of
- 11% Māori
- 56% are of European descent
- 13% have Pacific Island descent
- 12% Asians
This just goes to show how diverse the culture of Auckland is. Perhaps, these are among the factors that the global Mercer Quality of Life Survey looks into when proclaiming Auckland as the third most liveable city in the world.
But hearing the accounts of those who have come to the region or reading this post is not enough. You’ve got to come to experience Auckland for yourself. You can visit here anytime because the region has a warm coastal climate with no extreme weather. Besides, there are always a handful of events that keep the city buzzing anytime of the year.
And you need not worry about accommodation either.

You may choose to stay in luxurious resorts, 5-star international hotel chains, bed and breakfast, or backpacker homes.
