It was quite a walk from CBD, but exploring on foot is the best way to visit the city and it's neighborhoods. Plenty of shopping, but I found it to be local type shopping, not much in the line of touristy type things. Plenty of places to eat also.

I went to Parnell as I wanted to go to The Chocolate Boutique and realised that there was so much more to see. Great boutique shops for Christmas Shopping.

A short bus ride from the city brings you to this nice charming. suburb. It is like a hipster enclave, walk around to enjoy this very quaint area. After getting in and out of the little lanes, we sat down to great coffee and watch the buses pass by. As it was such a great weather, we even walked back... More

This used to be the place to go like Ponsonby is now but it has definitely lost its intrigue. Mostly dull cafes and budget infill shopping. The only remaining places of interest are the art galleries. Go to Ponsonby instead.

This is a stop on the hop on hop off so we did it. We were hungry so we had lunch here. There are some store and restaurants but it did not blow me away. If you do not have time this is a stop I would leave out
