After everything we’ve been through this year 2020, we all deserve a grand travel plan after the pandemic. And where else could be a better destination than going to the renowned ‘Wonders of the World’. With our remaining days of quarantine, let’s maximize our time identifying the best places to wander off next!
You might want to fix your timetable and prepare to pack your bag after making arrangements! Something tells me it’s time to experience, very, very soon, some of the world’s cultural and natural riches. Here are the top five wonders you can travel to after the pandemic.
Taj Mahal, India
Its beautiful architecture and tale of love makes Taj Mahal worth the visit after the pandemic.
With all the downfalls we’ve experienced in 2020, we need to take inspiration from the testament of love of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan to his departed wife Mumtaz Mahal.
This mausoleum, which was built with an ivory-white marble and other precious stones, has become one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites that have been attracting seven to eight million visitors in a year!
The Great Wall of China
No debates needed. The Great Wall should be on your list of wonders to travel to after the pandemic.
This iconic structure, now a Chinese national symbol, was built over nearly 1800 years.
While its purpose was to protect and mark the territories of the Chinese states and empires, it has gone beyond its supposed objectives and has now become a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The design of the wall which spans more than 20,000 kilometers showcases the ingenuine ability of the Chinese to construct out of the natural terrains!
The Colosseum, Italy
Nothing would make us more victorious after winning the fight against coronavirus than seeing in person the Flavian Amphitheatre in Italy.
This Roman Empire’s architectural innovation has been constructed in AD 72 under Emperor Vespasian.
The Colosseum is the largest amphitheater in the world that can host up to 80,000 spectators!
Chichén Itzá, México
We found the need to add Chichén Itzá to the list of top wonders to travel to after pandemic because why not?
This ancient Maya city is a symbol of human civilization’s innovation even before great technological advancements were invented.
This remains as one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico. It also includes the observatory of El Caracol, Temple of the Warriors, Grand Ballcourt, Venus Platform, and many others (that seriously deserve you attention)!
Machu Picchu, Peru
While we’re all taught that change is one thing that is constant, Machu Picchu remains one of the few settlements that remain intact up to this time in history.
Before serious changes could actually happen, isn’t it best to visit it after the pandemic?
Machu Picchu is strategically located on the eastern slope of the Andes Mountains. It serves a a retreat for the Incan Emperor Pachacuti Inca Yupanqui.
And even if it is not intended to be visited by the masses, more and more individuals have been aiming to reach this wonder either by hiking up the Incan trail through the Andes or by train.
It’s no denying that there’s something incredibly special about visiting the legendary structures in the world that have stood the test of time for hundreds of years.
We’ve all seen them in magazines, on televisions, and on the internet. But truth is, nothing beats really standing in there yourself and soaking up the iconic surroundings. What’s your favorite among these places? Awaken your wanderlust soon!
