Lovely place for drink or a break. Very relaxing. When you walk through the street, not likely in New Zealand. Funny

We came upon this magical village at night. It is utterly charming with its quaint buildings and twinkling fairy lights.
Lots of restaurants, cafés and bars.
Specialty stores and nooks to explore.
Well worth a visit- at night simply magical.

Do not get too excited about the Parnell district of Auckland! But, it is a pretty inner city suburb with cafés and up market shops.

One of the w/e attractions, well publicised, are the markets. The better one by quite a long way is the Cigale French style market. It is bigger, has a more diverse content and definitely livelier!

We had brunch close to the market at Penelope's which looks good but is, in our opinion, overly expensive for what they set before you!

I have been living here for 1 year 12 years ago. This time, I stayed in Rose Park Hotel for two days and visit my old friend. The best place in this area is the Parnell Bath, which is a salt pool open to public. It is free for kids under 16. The boutiques are interesting too. There was a butcher's shop opposite to Rose Park, selling nice baked lemon cakes.

Since we needed to move on further to Rotorua, we didn't spend to much time here. Our visit could be considered as "only passing by" :-) However, we could feel the unique atmosphere here with all the shops, restaurant and the pedestrians. When in Auckland and have enough time, don't hesitate to spend here; even if it would be for the atmosphere alone. However, be prepared also for the relatively high prices as this Parnell area is considered as the high end area ....... :-) :-)
