Three Alternatives to the Classic Seven Wonders of the World Published on .

We all know about the classic seven wonders of the world, and it is many people’s dream to visit all seven in their lifetime. If the seven wonders of the world aren’t quite on your bucket list, however, we have listed three wonderful alternatives below that are well worth visiting.

Halong Bay, Vietnam

Halong Bay with a view of mountains, islands and sea
Halong Bay is a beautiful natural bay situated in Quang Ninh Province, northern Vietnam. The bay is made up of hundreds of luscious jungle islands, limestone karsts and majestic caves, and has come to be a favourite natural wonder of travellers all over the world. The bay is now recognised as a World Heritage Site for its geological uniqueness and cultural importance. You can explore the bay by kayak or boat; it is recommended to visit from October to April for the cooler weather and calm waters.

The best way to visit Halong Bay is to travel from Hanoi which takes around 2 hours and 45 minutes. There are plenty of buses or trains that travel there regularly, or alternatively you can cut the time and opt for a seaplane which is the fastest way to get there.

Taj Mahal, India

The Taj Mahal is a stunning white marble mausoleum nestled in Agra, and is famously admired all around the world. The UNESCO World Heritage Site was built between 1631 and 1648, ordered by Shah Jahan in memory of his Persian princess wife Mumtaz Mahal who died giving birth to their fourteenth child. Both bodies of Shah and Mumtaz lie in a tomb here.

Many people visit the Taj Mahal to marvel the stunning mix of Islamic, Indian and Persian architectural styles, while others are interested in the history. A walk around the breathtaking monument takes you straight back to the magical Mughal era of luxury and royalty, giving you a taste of what life was like.

You can easily travel from Delhi to Agra by express train, which takes around 2 hours.

Christ the Redeemer, Brazil

Are you looking for another wonder to add to your alternative bucket list? Christ The Redeemer – the 30m tall statue created by Paul Landowski in Rio de Janeiro – stands proudly at the peak of Corcovado Mountain, looking over the city of Rio from 2,320 feet up. The impressive statue, weighing over 1400 tons, is a cultural icon not just in Brazil but in the world. Christ The Redeemer is made up of thousands of soapstone mosaic tiles and took nine years to finish, making the statue a pretty impressive sight to behold. The statue’s hand alone is three times the size of an average human!
