Don't forget to cast your vote for your favorite Wonders.

In addition to the Statue of Liberty, pyramids, Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu, the finalists are the Acropolis; Turkey's Haghia Sophia; the Kremlin and St. Basil's Cathedral; the Colosseum; Germany's Neuschwanstein Castle; Stonehenge; Spain's Alhambra; the Great Wall; Japan's Kiyomizu Temple; the Sydney Opera House; Cambodia's Angkor; Timbuktu; Petra, Jordan; Brazil's Statue of Christ Redeemer; Easter Island; and Chichen Itza, Mexico.

I've personally seen a few of these: Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum, Neuschwanstein Castle, and Stonehenge. Who can top that?

However, there are a couple modern marvels that I think should have made the list.


Apollo 11 planting a flag on the moon. Maybe too nationalistic, but moreso than the Kremlin or the Great Wall of China?


The Panama Canal. An amazing feat of engineering.

Considering that the original Seven Wonders of the World were chosen by consensus, online voting seems about right for the New Wonders.
