Auckland – New Zealand
Auckland is New Zealand’s harbour city. It is one of the few rarest cities in the world to have twin harbours and that too on two separate major bodies of water, i.e. Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean. It is well known as a cultural hub with trouble free access to various nature-based adventurous activities such as swimming on west coast beaches and hiking on the volcanic island of Rangitoto.
Helsinki – Finland
Helsinki is a city on the peak of a spanking self confidence, having the advantage of the warm feeling of its supremacy as World Design Capital and a proud centre of one of the Europe’s most affluent countries. From the peculiar couture of Marimekko to the modish masterpieces of Alvar Aalto, design is in its veins. Yet, it is also a city in touch with nature.
Zurich – Switzerland
More enticed by the twin beauty of Lausanne and Bern, Zurich has not constantly gained the attention of city breakers. It is often imaged as a hub for bureaucrats in grey and black and waist coated-bankers. But the Old Town, Lake Zurich and Grossmünster church in Switzerland’s prime city could give foes a jog for their Swiss Francs. Its financial competency denotes that it is a wealthy place with an efficient public transport system.
