Editor Rating: $60-75USD per day- Auckland is middle of the road when it comes to the budget. It’s a big city in a western country, so it’s not going to be cheap like big cities in Asia or Latin America, but it’s also not going to be uber expensive like large cities in Europe or the US. Backpackers can get by on a modest budget.
Indie Travel Scale
Editor Rating: 6- Auckland is the most diverse among New Zealand’s cities, with a sizable Asian and Polynesian population. There are plenty of touristy things to do in Auckland, but it’s not too difficult to get off-the-beaten path and find some unique opportunities in Auckland.
