From Morning Report, 8:58 am on 28 October 2021

A lot of people in Auckland probably wish they were in London, Paris or New York right now, but according to one international travel guide, it's those who live in these other places who really ought to be in Auckland.

Lonely Planet has just named our biggest city as the world's best to visit in 2022. The accolade was announced on Thursday.

The guidebook has also produced a fulsome tribute to the Queen City written by an anonymous Aucklander.

Lonely Planet sales and marketing director Chris Zeiher spoke to Susie Ferguson from downtown Melbourne.
