Checking Off the Seven Wonders of the Modern World

It is the dream of every avid traveller to visit all the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and there is no denying that this is a feat that I would love to personally achieve as well.

Perhaps you are not aware, the Seven Wonders of the Modern World are:

– Chichén Itza, Mexico
– Christ the Redeemer Statue, Brazil
– Colosseum, Italy
– Taj Mahal, India
– Great Wall of China
– Petra, Jordan
– Machu Picchu, Peru

Of course, there are also the classic Seven Wonders of the World:

– Colossus of Rhodes
– Great Pyramid of Giza
– Hanging Gardens of Babylon
– Lighthouse of Alexandria
– Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
– Statue of Zeus at Olympia
– Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

Taj Mahal, India

And, the Seven Natural Wonders of the World:

– Grand Canyon
– The Great Barrier Reef
– The Harbour of Rio de Janeiro
– Mt. Everest
– Northern Lights
– Paricutin Volcano
– Victoria Falls

The problem that most Malaysian wage earners face, including yours truly, is that our Ringgit can only take us so far. Therefore, while there are so many places that I want to visit, I am concentrating on the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, simply because it appears to be more attainable than the other two lists.

At this point, out of the seven landmarks, I have already checked off three. Which are they, do you know? The answer is in the photos enclosed!

What about you? Which destinations are you working towards, as a traveller?

  1. Oh I can’t wait to go see the Northern Lights. I’ve been to China once many years ago but sadly never got to see the great wall.

  2. Truth be told, I only want to visit the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Grand Canyon and the Northern Lights… hahhaha…The Great Wall of China will be a bonus though…

    And I am so happy for you since you had the opportunity to visit Taj Mahal, The Treasury and of course the Great Wall…I am sure you will be able to travel to the rest on the list…

  3. These 7 wonders list are truly amazing, and so challenging! I would pick to explore italy first.

  4. Northern lights is on our list from ages now but not getting the chance to visit the place.

  5. Well, I have yet visited any of these places. The world has so much impressive things for us (human) to discover. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I have only visited one of the 7 wonders of the world and that is the great wall of china. Amazing right its in both of the list, modern wonders and 7 wonders.
    I would love to get to see the northern lights. it looks so beautiful.

  7. A big fan of Turkey, I would love to go to see the Temple of Artemis and other of their 8,500 historic areas. Although the temple is one of the old ancient wonders but I heard that this place is almost empty, nothing remains other than one large column and staggered pieces of stones of the temple.

  8. It’s been on my list since I was 17. Slowly ticking it off my bucket list too! I plan to tick of the Seven wonders of the Modern world first! hehe

  9. Awh certainly one of the places I need to tick off my bucket list soon. Definitely a must visit!

  10. My next destination is China. I want to experience the great wall of China. Have not been there.
