19. Bask in the Ancient Glory of Petra
Both one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, there’s no denying Petra’s mystifying allure.

But the hub of industry and ingenius engineering was only rediscovered in 1812. Team up with an expert guide like Amelia Stewart of Original Travel to discover the site’s exquisite pink sandstone formations, carvings, and monumental tombs. The travel company offers a handful of custom-built tours that pack all of the highlights into one comprehensive trip. Needless to say, the inspiring destination is guaranteed to leave a mark on even the most well-seasoned world travelers.
