New Zealand is a beautiful country to visit. Auckland is normally the first stop when you fly into New Zealand. Besides visiting the attractions of Auckland and other cities, time your visit to Auckland to coincide with one of the many events on the region's calendar. Don't worry about Auckland accommodation, there is plenty of it across the city.
What's currently on in Auckland? If you like dance, there is Tempo, New Zealand's Festival of Dance and the Yacht Race. Also happening next week is the Waitakere World Junior Badminton Championships 2007. These events are crowd-pullers but the number of hotels in Auckland would be sufficient to accommodate every visitor.
And yes, if you like rock music, Auckland plays host to WE WILL ROCK YOU, the musical by Queen and Ben Elton. This should be a treat for all rock fans in Auckland.
New Zealand has become a popular country to emigrate too so it is not surprisingly to see various ethnic groups in New Zealand. Immigrant South-Asians will be celebrating Diwali Festival of Lights next month and during such festivals families would want to get together. Auckland would then see an influx of visitors. If you are planning to visit Auckland around this time-frame, you may want to book Auckland hotels in advance. The Internet has made it so easy and cheaper to book hotels online.
