Have These Five Interesting Places On Your Travel List

Aug 18, 2007
The Masai Mara and Serengeti wild life parks in Kenya and Tanzania respectively are worth a visit especially in August during the wildebeest migration. The Masai Mara and Serengeti parks are actually separated by the border between the two countries.

The Masai Mara is not only famous for wildebeest but also the so called big five: lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard. Wildebeest migrate north in July to August for fresh pasture and back south in October; it is an impressive sight with thousands of wildebeest seeming to be obeying at the same order. The wildebeest are joined by Zebra and Gazelle.

The Great wall in China is an historical marvel worth a visit in one's lifetime. The wall stretches for an amazing more than 6,000 km, amazing because it was built without all the machines that are used in construction today. In the beginning the wall was made out of rammed mud and but later with stone and brick. The wall was build for defence of the Chinese empire. Some parts of the wall are completely destroyed and vandals keeping taking parts of it to sell to tourists.

The Great Wall welcomes thousands of tourists every year and more so after the opening up of the China to the outside world. However globalisation may threaten its existence as China modernises rapidly building highways and high-rise buildings.

The Pyramids of Egypt have welcomed millions of tourists some of who make second visits. The Pyramids are a living legacy of the Egyptian civilisation. Most archaeologists agree that they were built as burial grounds for royalty of the kingdom. Most of the pyramids are well preserved and it is possible to go inside some of them and see how they look on the inside. The pyramids were massive structures; some took 400 years to build. They never fail to amaze visitors considering that architecture was not as developed as it is today. The most well known include the Sphinx and the pyramid of the Giza pyramid complex that has several pyramids grouped together.

Niagara Falls on the Niagara River that straddles the Canadian and American border is a natural miracle that has pulled crowds since the time of the explorers. It is also a popular wedding and honeymoon destination. The falls is not as high as falls go but it very wide; it is comprised of three falls: the American and the Bridal Veil Falls on the American side of the falls and the Horseshoe falls on the Canadian side. Apart from its beauty and tourism the falls are important for hydroelectricity generation for Canada.
