It all started with the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. This list of outstanding structures of classical antiquity given by different authors has changed slightly since the 2nd and 1st centuries BC, and its current form was only established during the Renaissance.
Nowadays, there are several human-made monuments and natural marvels listed as the New Seven Wonders of the World, which are actually eight since The Great Pyramid of Giza was later added – it is now the only representative of the original list.
These places attract the interest of millions of tourists every year and are the dream travel destination of millions of others.
Travel agencies even created a special world tour that can take you to each one of these tourist attractions in just over a month. If you have the money and availability, this is an excellent way to see the seven wonders without having to worry about the logistics.
If you don’t, don’t worry. We have got you covered. As long as you have an internet connection, you can travel the world without leaving your home. Here’s how you can do it.
1. The Great Wall of China (China)
Some parts of this massive wall started being built over 2,500 years ago to consolidate and protect Chinese territories against nomadic groups. From then on, it grew into a complex series of fortification systems of immeasurable architectural and historical value.
It spans over 21 thousand kilometers (13 thousand miles) across the northern borders. This absolutely impressive dimension has given rise to a myth that the Great Wall could be seen from the moon. It can’t.
But you can see it and tread its most famous trails from your living room. The China Guide website designed an amazing online tour through the Great Wall of China, packed with historical facts and insightful information that you can check as you move along certain sections of the wall.
