Long ago, the Maori peoples settled on an isolated yet fertile island. The Maori called this land Aotearoa – the “land of the long white cloud.” However, everything changed when British Colonists traveled to Aotearoa in the 19th Century. Not only did they incorporate the land into the United Kingdom, but they also changed Aotearoa’s land into New Zealand. But just 12 years after this event, New Zealand regained the right to self-governance and has remained a sovereign nation ever since. Even today, the inhabitants of New Zealand continue to take pride in their sovereignty, their culture, and their history, both before and after the 19th Century.
Auckland is one of the cities that exemplifies this sense of pride. Known as Tāmaki Makaurau by the Maori, Auckland is considered to be the “Heart of New Zealand” by many. This city houses the University of Auckland, the world-famous Sky Tower, and more than 1.7 million citizens as of 2019. Hundreds of festivals are held in Auckland each year, especially in areas like Aotea Square. Visiting Auckland will be an experience unlike any other. Not only will the trip broaden your horizons, but it might also refresh and revitalize your spirit.
Auckland is often called the “Big Little City” by many of its long time citizens. That’s because this densely populated metropolis is also quite compact. It’ll be hard to enjoy your trip to Auckland if you’re overburdened with baggage. Let Bounce secure your excess luggage. We’re a 24 hours luggage service that’s available all throughout the week.

Our research indicates that Auckland’s crime rate is extremely low, especially when compared to similarly-sized cities. Out of a population of 1.657 million citizens, about 500 residents report criminal activities like theft each month. Violent crimes in Auckland have increased by about 7.3% from 2019 to 2020. However, these cases rarely had fatal outcomes.
Moreover, Auckland is also considered to have a low risk of terrorist activity. This is due, in large part, to New Zealand’s geographical location. As an island nation, New Zealand is separated from the rest of the world. On a smaller scale, even crimes like burglaries and thefts are rare occurrences. Overall, one can expect to have a safe and relaxing trip to Auckland.
