Six Chinese Sites in “World’s Great Wonders”

The travel experts at Lonely Planet just released a new book, titled “The World’s Great Wonders,” which lists what they believe are the world’s 50 must-see wonders. Of the 20 natural wonders and 30 man-made wonders, China made the list six times.

The Great Wall of China, Terracotta Army and Potala Palace even ranked in the top 10 greatest wonders, a winnowed down list of world wonders. To see the short list, go to: http://www.nydailynews.com.  To look inside the full book and see the six China wonders included, go to: http://shop.lonelyplanet.com.

It’s no surprise that China would rank so highly and have so many wonders included; with breathtaking sites such as the more than 8,000 terracotta sculptures, the 13,000-mile wall and the world’s highest palace, China truly is a place of great wonders.
