The New Seven Wonders of the World (Provisional)





FastDebrid
I know it's been released and I have to say, I couldn't agree more with the results. Still, I wish all the candidates could have been included and the number of the new wonders of the world were just expanded.hihih

Amazon


Halong Bay


Iguazu Falls


Jeju Island


Komodo


Puerto Princesa Underground River


Table Mountain

Must say Halong Bay is pretty awesome.

The problem with any such list is that there are a lot more than just 7 wonders in the world.
They're always going to leave some fairly important ones out, no matter which 7 they pick.

That said, to pick on this one...
What's so great about Table Mountain and Jeju Island?
Sure, they seem to be pretty interesting geological formations... but I don't see what it is that makes them 'wonders of the world'.
The rest are pretty good choices though.

Hello_World
Komodos are pretty cool animals but so are orangatans... or any number of amazing wildlife... how did an animal get in this list?

Maybe it has to do with the Komodo island more than the komodos?

Perhaps what makes them wonders are their forms themselves and the beauty they have.
I have to agree that there are a lot of other wonders to be considered. Perhaps, it just went down to the countries most addicted to the internet or addicted to texting. 'Cause from what I know the voting was done online and through text.

I think it's the nature reserve or the park wherein the komodos and other extinct animals have been settled.

I noticed that all these places are in the tropics (or very close).

There are some extremely beautiful wonders in the northern (snowy) regions too.

This should be renamed to the seven tropical wonders of the world

Agreed. There are some fabulous mountains all over the world. Perhaps they should have a category for that too. Guess the Himalayas would probably be No. 1? Or the Andes? Question

I've been to the Table Mountain and found it to be quite disappointing, really. Surely something more magical than that touristy park on a mountain top exists.
