Millions of travelers seek out and interact with these monuments in different sections of the world. They can now browse over these historic locations with the unique lens of virtual reality via The New York Times.

The New York Times reported:

‘These sites and monuments are popularly known as the “new Seven Wonders of the World,” modern additions to the ancient Seven Wonders laid out by Philo of Byzantium in 250 B.C., which included the hanging gardens of Babylon and the pyramids of Giza. (Of those ancient seven, only the pyramids remain.)’
