The American Society of Civil Engineers compiled another list of wonders of the modern world:[9]

Great Pyramids of Giza
Great Wall of China
Taj Mahal
Serengeti Migration
Galápagos Islands
Grand Canyon
Machu Picchu


Natural wonders
Similar to the other lists of wonders, there is no consensus on a list of seven natural wonders of the world, as there has been debate over how large the list should be. One of the many lists was compiled by CNN:[11]

Grand Canyon
Great Barrier Reef
Harbor of Rio de Janeiro
Mount Everest
Polar Aurora
Parícutin volcano
Victoria Falls


Underwater wonders
This list of underwater wonders is of unknown origin but has been repeated sufficiently often to acquire a degree of notability:[12] [13]

Palau
Belize Barrier Reef
Great Barrier Reef
Deep-Sea Vents
Galapagos Islands
Lake Baikal
Northern Red Sea


New Seven Wonders
Main article: New Seven Wonders of the World
Two "New Seven Wonders" lists have been promoted since 2000.

In 2001 an initiative was started by Swiss organization New Open World Corporation (NOWC) to choose the New Seven Wonders of the World from a selection of 200 existing monuments (ongoing).[14] Twenty-one finalists were announced January 1, 2006.[15] The results will be announced on 7 July 2007.

In November 2006 the American national newspaper USA Today in conjunction with the American television show Good Morning America revealed a list of "New Seven Wonders" as chosen by six judges.[16] The wonders were announced one per day over a week on Good Morning America. An eighth wonder was chosen on November 24 from viewer feedback.[17]

Number Wonder Location
1 Potala Palace Lhasa, Tibet
2 Old City of Jerusalem Israel
3 Polar ice caps Polar regions
4 Northwestern Hawaiian Islands National Monument Hawaii, United States
5 Internet N/A
6 Mayan ruins Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico
7 Great Migration of Serengeti and Masai Mara Tanzania and Kenya
8 Grand Canyon (viewer-chosen eighth wonder) Arizona, United States
