    Currently there is a vote going on to select the New 7 Wonders of the World vote... which can be found here.

    The Acropolis
    Hagia Sophia
    The Kremlin/St. Basil's
    The Colosseum
    Neuschwanstein Castle
    The Eiffel Tower
    Stonehenge
    The Alhambra
    The Great Wall of China
    Kiyomizu Temple
    The Sydney Opera House
    Angkor
    The Taj Mahal
    Timbuktu

    Niagra Falls anyone? The city maybe really cheesy but the falls are still damn amazing. And remember you want to see it from the Canadian side.

    How about the twin towers in KL?

    And I'll tell you this when the Dallas Cowboys build their new stadium, it will be the most amazing infastructure on the entire planet.

    These wonders of the world only include man made architecture


    My vote would go to the Pyramids(both Egypt or Mexico) or Machu Pichu.
     
  7. The thing Machu Pichu has going for it is the location...I mean imagine building something like that on a mountain top with no technology to help you. I mean Angkor and Tikal are impressive but they are one big flood plains. Those mountains in Peru are basically 1km straight up from the valley below.

    The Nazco lines too....they couldn't even see what they were creating but they did tonnes of them.

    Christ the Redeemer Statue has to be on there. Not because of my religious beliefs, but because that's an impressive and imposing figure. It is simply collosal.

  12. Yeah that should have been on my list the more I think about it...probably instead of the Taj Mahal...fantastic as it is it's only one building.
     
  13. No room for the leaning tower of Pisa?

    maybe it has something to do with there only being 1 left standing, so they want a modern list, most likely nothing more than an attempt to increase the tourism to these 7 sites that they choose.
