Wellington is the capital city and third most populous urban area of New Zeland. It is at the southwestern tip of the North, between Cook Strait and the Rimutaka Range. It is home to 389,700 residents.
The Wellington urban area is the major population centre of the southern North Island, and is the seat of the Wellington Region which in addition to the urban area covers the Kapiti Coast and Wairarapa. The urban area includes four cities: Wellington, on the peninsula between Cook Strait and Wellington Harbour, contains the central business district and about half of Wellington's population; Porirua on Porirua Harbour to the north is notable for its large Maori and Pacific Island communities; Lower Hutt and Upper Hut are largely suburban areas to the northeast, together known as the Hutt Valley.
In 2008, Wellington was classified as a Gamma World City in the World Cities Study Group’s inventory by Loughborough University. The 2010 Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranked Wellington 12th in the world. In 2011 Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2011 named Wellington as fourth in its Top 10 Cities to Visit in 2011, referring to the New Zealand capital as the "coolest little capital in the world".This beautiful city can be good for touristic holidays.
