7 New Wonders
In a recent poll to find a new "7 wonders of the world", readers of a UK travel magazine relegated the pyramids to 8th place: "Readers of Wanderlust , Britain's leading magazine for real travellers, have updated the millennia-old list for the 21 st century. Overall, 3,569 travellers' votes were counted in the largest survey of its kind ever. The results reveal what today's travellers view to be the most extraordinary sights on the planet. The clear voters' favourite is the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu, Peru, which received 52% more votes than its nearest rival, the vast temple complex of Angkor , Cambodia". See the above press release for the rest of the results.
