When arriving at a new city we like to view this city by train, bus or walk. We took a train from Britomart to Parnell, and walk from Parnell to New market. Finally we took a bus back to our hotel.

Parnell is a representative of Auckland in a street. There's lots to see and shops to tempt you for your shopping therapy and more then that it's vibrant and alive especially their cafes and restaurants.
