Auckland a Condé Nast Favourite

Auckland has made the Condé Nast Traveler global guide to the ‘Best Places to Go in 2023’ list, one of 23 locations worldwide to make the cut.

“Widely praised for its containment of COVID-19, New Zealand held out until September of this year to finally eliminate travel restrictions introduced during the pandemic.

“Aside from Auckland’s newest attractions that outsiders have yet to experience – like the $350M eco-sensitive Te Wānanga waterfront development on Quay Street – three years’ worth of flashy hotel openings also await.

“And, in July, the quadrennial FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will swing down under to nine host cities across New Zealand and Australia, with Auckland’s games held in Eden Park.”
