I'll be in Auckland for 48 hours before sailing to Australia, Malaysia, Bali on 2/18/17. My birthday is 2/17 and I'd like to have a merry old time. Any suggestions?
What you have in mind? dinner at Auckland Tower sounds cool with beautiful views around
Here's the website of skytower [original link]
Is highly recommended things to do in Auckland....you can combined dinner and viewing. Just go to the office and reserve your ticket for in the evening.....There are different restaurants inside, take the highest one "Orbit"
If you are only in New Zealand for 2 days, surely you would like to experience some Kiwi culture, rather than just eat a meal with a view (admittedly spectacular!)
You say "merry old time!" If you just want to drink yourself silly, then go for it! But what about renting a car and driving to some iconic Kiwi destination, like Hot Water Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula, and soaking in thermal water while the tide comes in! Then on the way back, stop in Thames, and eat at the Brian Boru Hotel, another classic Kiwi eatery. It is only a 2 hour drive from Auckland airport to Hot Water Beach.
Just some thoughts. :)
