Here at Explore we came up with the idea of launching a new 7 wonders list that is all about great travel experiences, how we enjoy places and experiences rather than just the sites themselves.
Our top 20 were chosen from hundreds of nominations from around the world, from Explore staff, customers, tour leaders and overseas partners.
After a lot of debate in the office these were whittled down to the 20 below and then for the last 4 months, people with a passion for travel have cast nearly 50,000 votes to form our top 7 wondrous experiences of the world.
You'll find the shortlisted 20 below, or click here for the top 7.
You voted in your thousands in our comprehensive survey over the last 4 months. Now it's time to reveal what your top 7 Wondrous Experiences of the World are.
You’ve all seen the lists of the 7 Wonders of the World, the Natural World or the Ancient World, but when we looked at those we realised the one thing missing was the people aspect; the way in which people actually enjoy these sites and the way they experience them.
So, we came up with the idea of launching a new list, which is all about you, the people who travel to and get pleasure from, what are otherwise lifeless edifices or planetary features.
You did your bit...
For the last 4 months, people with a passion for travel have cast nearly 50,000 votes. The people have spoken, the votes counted and the results are now ready to be released. oh - and one lucky voter will have won an Explore adventure, plus a further 35 voters will have won subscriptions to Lonely Planet magazine or an Adventure Pack.
