World Wonders Guide | Best World Wonders by Month | 7 New World Wonders
World Wonders listed here are mostly not, of course, to see the original 7 World Wonders of the World because only one still exists, pictured above. The vacation packages listed here visit ancient sites (usually UNESCO World Heritage Sites) around the world that amaze and enthuse - if you can see them through the crowds of tourists and hustlers.
Try to see a world wonder out of season but when the weather is good; they will inevitably be busy at any time but you might as well give yourself the best chance of appreciating these extraordinary monuments in relative tranquility.
