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
Petra
The Pyramids of Giza
The Statue of Christ Redeemer
The Easter Island Statues
Machu Picchu
Chichen Itzá
The Statue of Liberty

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.

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.

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.

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.
