Taj Mahal
Mumbai, Feb 16: It seems that Seven Wonders of the World have lost its tourists attraction, reports in a survey.

A survey conducted by a hotel booking portal found that tourists are preferring to visit other foreign destinations. The Seven Wonders could have dropped low on the priority list of tourists, shows the survey.

According to the survey, one in three travellers have never visited any of the seven wonders of the world. Over 33% of the travelers have visited Rome's ancient amphitheatre, the Colosseum at least once. Around 17% had visited the Great Wall of China and over 9% of the tourists had visited Christ, the Redeemer, of Brazil and Taj Mahal.

On the basis of Hotels.com's survey, most of the Indians have visited Taj Mahal, 45% had visited the Great Wall of China and almost 28% had visited the Great Pyramid of Giza.

"Egypt and China are very popular among Indian travellers . Rome is another destination which attracts travellers for its Colosseum. Indian travelers are still to open up to a place like Peru. But travelling to Peru is very expensive, said Rajesh Rateria, managing director, Cirrus Travels.
