31. The New Seven Wonders Of The World 

The new seven wonders of the world started as a campaign to select seven monuments that people could visit today. The list of possibilities grew to 200 and included the oldest and most well-known buildings in the world. Some of the places on the list included Timbuktu, Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, and the Sydney Opera House. 

The monuments that made the new seven wonders list include Christ the Redeemer, Taj Mahal, Machu Picchu, The Colosseum, Chichen Itza, The Great Wall of China, and Petra. The honorary member of the new list is The Great Pyramid of Giza.
