The Best Man Made Wonders of the World

There is a list of 7 man made wonders of the world. But many are called world wonder number 8. We haven't visited all, but here is our preferred list of the man-made structures we did visit:

Number 1: Angkor Wat temples, Cambodia

A large area of different temple complexes, this is regarded the best in the world. And we have to agree. The jungle around and over it helps in this ranking.

Number 2: The Great Wall of China

Needless to say, it's immense. Choose the right place to visit, though.

Number 3: Rock hewn churches of Lalibela, Ethiopia

Many churches cut from the rocks. We haven't seen Petra, but think this must come close.

Number 4: Tikal, Guatemala

There are several amazing Maya complexes in Central America. We liked Tikal in Guatemala the most.

Number 5: The Terracotta Warriors of Xian

Some crazy emperor ordered people to create enormous amounts of man-sized clay soldiers and horses. Not all of them are excavated, they're waiting for a technique to preserve the original colors.
