Under $100 / Australia

Auckland is situated between two harbors and surrounded by volcanic cones, making it one of the most unique and beautiful cities on Earth. While New Zealand has always been a pricey place to visit, you can easily accomplish one day here for less than $100.

 

Begin with breakfast at Best Ugly Bagels, where you’ll find a variety of bagels smothered with unique and delicious toppings for less than $10.

 

Once stuffed, take a stroll along the picturesque Viaduct Harbour. Here you’ll find the Auckland Fish Market, dozens of yachts floating in the water and plenty of upscale bars and boutiques. From there you can catch a ferry to either Rangitito Island or Waiheke. These volcanic coves offers prime hiking trails with incredible views and a round-trip ticket will run you roughly $30.

 

For lunch seek out Revive Café. You can nab a healthy salad or sandwich for less than $15.

 

Start the afternoon with a stop at the Sky Tower, where you can climb more than 1,000 feet for panoramic views of the city. You’ll also want to check out Queen Street, Auckland’s most famous road with dozens of shops, restaurants, the Historic Civic Theater and the Comedy Club. Be sure to stop by the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki before heading to dinner. The gallery contains nearly 15,000 pieces created by New Zealand and Māori artists.

 

For dinner, make your way to Parnell149 for a delicious meal of lamb shoulder for around $40.
