Traveling the world is a dream that many people would like to see come true. It has always been fantasized by many to go to the different parts of the world and experience different cultures, eat exotic food, and enjoy the beauty of nature. Many would opt to going to popular beach destinations such as Hawaii and Bali. Others choose to go to mainstream tourist destinations such as The Louvre in Paris and The Statue of Liberty in New York. But the world has much more to offer than those staple tourist attractions. Here are some of the wonders of the world that you should visit!
For those who love ancient Greek mythology, the Colosseum is the best place to start. It is an amphitheater where gladiators fought each other to the death for the entertainment of the Grecians. Located in the heart of Rome, Italy, it is considered to be one of the most popular tourist destinations of Rome and that is saying something because there are so many breathtaking structures from the ancient past that are still living to this very day. Indeed, one can only imagine how it was back then when the Colosseum was used for animal shows and tests of strength during the ancient times.
2. Taj Mahal
It is sort of romantic to think that your significant other would build a structure that became one of the seven wonders of the world just for you. Now that is something else entirely. Located in the bustling country of India, the Taj Mahal, which also means the Crown Palace, to house the tomb of the commissioner’s wife. It is an immensely popular tourist destination with an estimate of about seven to eight million visitors in a year. It is the epitome of the beauty of Muslim art and is truly a magnificent sight to see.
1. The Great Pyramid of Giza
One can only wonder how ancient Egyptian civilization managed to make these magnificent structures without the help of modern technology. It is known as the only ancient wonder of the world that is surviving to this very day. Of course, many would visit to see the mummies and the treasure that is buried with them. However, the larger than life pyramids themselves are a sight to behold. And to think that these structures have withstood the tests of time for thousands of years. Visiting the pyramids of Giza should definitely be a part of your bucket list.
