[05:41.68]Passage Auckland

[05:46.44]Looking for a vacation spot that combines the excitment of a bustling city

[05:53.20]with the ease of an island paradise?

[05:57.64]Then consider Auckland,New Zealand.

[06:02.97]About 11 hours from Southeast Asia,

[06:07.65]this city is sandwiched between two harbors on New Zealand's North Island.

[06:13.89]Auckland is becoming more famous all over the world for its high quality of life.

[06:21.83]And if you don't have a lot of vacation time,don't worry.

[06:27.40]You can experience much of this city in just two days.

[06:26.40]Start your first day in downtown Auckland.

[06:31.46]Go to Queen Street and try climbing the Sky Tower.

[06:36.92]At 328 meters,it's the tallest structure in the Southern Hemisphere.

[06:44.47]Inside the tower,you'll find a hotel,casino,theater and many restaurants.

[06:52.73]The tower's newest attraction

[06:56.80]is a guided climb up a unique ladder system through the middle of the tower.

[07:04.95]Trained guides take you up to the top for a stunning view of Auckland.

[07:11.61]Once on the ground again,make your way to Victoria Park Market.

[07:18.46]It's just a few minutes'walk from the tower.

[07:23.50]Victoria Park Market was originally built in 1950 as an industrial site.

[07:31.96]But the area was transformed in 1981 into an open-air shopping mall.

[07:39.72]All the clothes and crafts you'll find here are made locally.

[07:45.47]So take your time wandering through this special market.

[07:50.82]Next,head over to the Viaduct Harbor.

[07:55.58]Here,you'll find the team bases for the America's Cup.

[08:00.93]More than four million people came to see this world-famous yacht race last year.

[08:07.78]Come join the millions of visitors flocking to see the 2003 races next month.

[08:15.54]On your second day,wake up early and board a ferry to Waiheke Island.

[08:23.48]Only 30 minutes away from Auckland,

[08:28.05]nearly every Aucklander goes there to relax and have fun.

[08:33.90]Take advantage of the early morning sun and go swimming in the sea.

[08:40.38]Or you can a boat and go sailing.

[08:45.05]Did you know that Aucklanders own the most boats per capita in the world?

[08:51.90]No wonder it's called the City of Sails.

[08:57.04]You can easily spend the whole day on Waiheke.

[09:02.37]If you tire of the beach,visit the island's vineyards.

[09:09.24]For your next destination,catch a ferry boat to the mainland.

[09:15.41]Get on the 2 p.m.ferry that stops at the seaside village of Devonport.

[09:22.67]Make a beeline for any cafe and order some fish and chips.

[09:28.52]Finish your whirlwind tour of Auckland by heading back to the Sky Tower.

[09:34.97]Don't worry.You don't have to climb it again.

[09:40.43]This time,ride the elevator to the top.

[09:45.89]Have dinner in any fo the seven restaurants at the Tower,

[09:51.67]and take in Auckland's skyline by night.

[09:56.42]As you admire the splendid view,

[10:00.78]enjoy some famous New Zealand lamb or some seafood.

[10:06.43]Then pat yourself on the back

[10:10.27]for having managed to see this exciting city in just two days.
