7 Lesser-Known World Wonders

Meenakshi Temple

Travel is personal – your experiences are unique to you, and simply put, only you can decide on what your definition of a world wonder might be. Whilst the UNESCO lists are great for getting ideas, they simply cannot encompass all the wonders our world has to offer. That’s why we’ve compiled our own list, of lesser-known world wonders that we believe deserve a little more time in the limelight.
