Although Auckland is not the official capital, it is the social and commercial capital of New Zealand, not to mention the most populated city. Auckland sits at the top of the North Island and is surrounded by harbours, volcanoes and a gulf of islands. It has a refreshingly relaxed and sociable atmosphere and as far as Auckland nightlife goes, there is something going on every night of the week. In terms of sight seeing, there is a lot to see and do in the centre but it is also easy to escape the hub of the city centre and find beaches, volcanoes and islands that would not be found near your average city.
