There are hundreds of sights that you want to see in your lifetime but might not get the chance tick off. So, it’s best to somehow narrow down your list, perhaps by whittling down your list to the world’s most popular sights. However, even then there is still a lot, which is why we have put together our own top 10 incredible wonders of the world.
One of these wonders is, of course, the Giants Causeway which you can learn all about on a Giants Causeway tour. Others sights on this list, however, you may need to research and learn about for yourself.
- The Great Pyramids Of Giza – Situated in Egypt, the great pyramid of Giza is a must-see for any traveller. It is the largest of the three pyramids standing at 139m tall and has been a popular tourist attraction for years. It was constructed sometime during the fourth dynasty and its base stretches for 230.34 metres.
- The Great Wall Of China – Extending for 31,171 miles the Great Wall of China is one of the most easily recognisable landmarks in the world. In 1987, it was classed as a world heritage site and since being built has seen thousands of people come from all over the world to walk along it.
- Machu Picchu – Abandoned in 1572, Machu Picchu is situated in Peru and displays the remains of an age-old settlement. It is elevated 2,430 metres above sea level and was built entirely without the use of wheels or any other transport to move the heavy stones.
- The Roman Colosseum – Constructed in 70 AD, the Roman Colosseum stands at 48 metres high and is Rome’s most popular tourist attraction. It’s completely made of only stone and concrete and is the largest amphitheatre in the world.
- Giant’s Causeway – As Belfast’s most popular attraction, Giant’s Causeway displays thousands of columns that are not only rich in history but also mythology. The Causeway consists of over 40,000 interlocking columns that are all shaped differently. However, you can learn more information on a Giants Causeway tour
- Taj Mahal – Opened in 1648, the Taj Mahal has been seen as a wonder of the world for a number of years. It’s said to have taken more than 20,000 people to build the Taj and stands to this day as beautiful as it was when first built.
- The Great Barrier Reef – Covering 348,700km, the Great Barrier Reef is one of Australia’s most popular sites. Although this is a site that you need to visit underwater, it is well worth a visit as there are hundreds of fish and corals to see.
- The Grand Canyon – Stretching for 18 miles, the Grand Canyon is situated in Arizona in the United States and, due to its large size, actually creates its own weather. As the deepest canyon in the world, thousands visit each year to bask in its breath-taking view.
- Niagara Falls – Situated on the United States-Canadian border, Niagara Falls is one of the world’s most beautiful sites. The fall produces thousands of gallons of water per second and is made up of three different waterfalls.
- Stonehenge – Constructed in 3100 BC, Stonehenge is one of the UK’s most well-known sites and has developed a lot of wonder and curiosity about how and why it’s there. It’s also well known to astronomers as it was once thought that it had a connection to the sun, moon and stars.
