There’s no doubt that the world is full of wonders. From Peru’s hard-to-reach Machu Picchu to Rome’s bloodthirsty Colosseum and America’s awe-inspiring Grand Canyon, each one is unique and fascinating in its own right. So it’s no surprise to see them all make an appearance in our new list of the top 500 sights in the world. But which one packs the biggest punch? We thought we’d turn to you, our community of globetrotters and fearless explorers, to find out what type of world wonder kicks your wanderlust into gear.
Whether you’re at one with the natural world or you prefer to marvel at larger-than-life constructions, review your bucket list, dig out your best travel photos and join us for our natural wonders vs manmade debate on Twitter! (Not quite sure which side to take? This might help!)
The most inspiring tweeter will win a copy of our new Ultimate Travel list!
