A few years ago, The New7Wonders Foundation took a poll to create a modernized list of the Seven Wonders of the World! After reading this on National Geographic it became my new goal to visit all seven places! Check out the NEW Seven Wonders of the World:
Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – This seems like the perfect place for my next beach vacation! Great nightlife, beaches and shopping… my kind of trip!
Great Wall of China in Beijing, China – I’d love to do China and Japan in the same trip, and the Great Wall of China would one of the first places I’d visit! Interestingly the Chinese Heritage Officials were unsupportive of the “New Seven Wonders” poll and held no celebration for the Great Wall of China making it on the list.
Colosseum in Rome, Italy – I’ll be checking this one off my list in May! They recently added both underground and night time tours of the Colosseum!
Petra, Jordan – Absolutely amazing I cannot wait to explore this area one day. Ideally, I’d visit Jordan and Egypt in the same trip.
Machu Picchu, Peru – Undeniably beautiful, but definitely a very different vacation for me… Not sure it there would be any shopping or sushi restaurants on this trip.
Chichen Itza in Yucatan, Mexico – Although I’ve been to this area of Mexico a few times I’ve never made it to the Mayan Ruins… I’m always distracted by the sandy beaches and mojitos, but next time this is a must!
Taj Mahal in Agra, India – I recently spoke to an India Tourism rep at the Toronto Travel Show, and North India looks amazing! Such a rich culture! The Taj Mahal has been called the “Jewel of Muslim Art”.
