An inspiring experience
Petra in Jordan may not be one of the most famous landmarks is the world, but i think the sheer scale and beauty of the ‘lost city’ of Petra is well worth a top 10 spot.
Although Jordan borders some of the more troubled countries of the Middle East, such as Iraq, Syria, Israel and Saudi Arabia, it rarely experiences any problems. Jordanians perfectly articulate this when describing themselves as ‘The quiet house in a noisy neighbourhood.’ and there is nothing in the world that resembles it. Hidden behind rugged mountains, the rock-carved, rose-red city boasts more than 800 individual monuments. Petra sits about 163 miles (262km) south of Amman and 83 miles (133km) north of Aqaba where the countries two international airports are situated.
The mountain-top ruins of Machu Picchu are the most popular tourist attraction in South America. Machu Picchu is one of the most magical places in the world and worthy of a top 10 spot.
Machu Picchu is a city located high in the . It lies 43 miles (69km) northwest of Cuzco at the top of a ridge Machu Picchu (meaning ‘ ’). It was built between 1460 and 1470 AD by Pachacuti Inca Yupanqui, an Incan ruler. Experts believe it was most likely a royal estate and religious retreat. The city has an high above the Urubamba River canyon cloud forest. The real is a walking route that leads through the mountains above the Urubamba River, following (at least partly) the course of an old Incan roadway leading to the city of Machu Picchu.
