Millions Choose New 7 World Wonders

Millions of people from across the globe cast their votes to choose seven new wonders of the world. The Amazon led the list unveiled Friday by New7Wonders, the group that oversees the campaign. Additional breathtaking spots included Halong Bay, Vietnam; Iguazu Falls, Argentina and Brazil; Jeju Island, South Korea; Komodo, Indonesia, Puerto Princesa Underground River, the Philippines; and Table Mountain, South Africa. Internet voting ended after two years Friday morning, and the confirmed winners will be announced early in 2012. The Seven Wonders of the World, chosen by Philon of Byzantium in 200 B.C., included the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Pyramids of Giza. The difference, according to the N7W website, is that the new seven wonders were chosen not by one person, but by millions.
