Machu Picchu is world’s best wonder

For many people a visit to one of the Seven Wonders of the World represents the perfect holiday, but just what are these 7 wonders? Well, the official version may be different to polls that are regularly done on tourists who dream about or have been on this type of holiday.

The lost Inca city of Machu Picchu, found in Peru, has been voted as the number one wonder in the world.

Machu Pichu regularly picks up  50% more votes than other tourist destinations when travel blog readers are asked for their opinions on the best wonders of the world.

The Peruvian city was built between 1460 and 1470 and consists of some 200 temples and public buildings. Despite remaining intact, it was not found by the Spanish, and was only rediscovered in 1911 by Yale professor Hiram Bingham.

In second place in travel polls is  temples of Angkor, in Cambodia, followed by India’s Taj Mahal and the ancient city of Petra.

The only remaining wonder of the ancient world, The Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt, was number eight in the list of 75 top sights.

“To explore any of these seven fully requires a great sense of adventure, but they truly represent the most amazing travel experiences on the planet”.

So, maybe it’s time to brush off the dust from your “Indiana Jones” hat and start planning your next holiday adventure !
