Do you like to travel?

I like to travel a lot. But I don’t have a lot of money to travel outside of MALAYSIA. hehehehehe

I have a dream I will get a great job that will give me a good salary that can make my dream come true. That is, I want to travel and visit all beautiful places around the world.

So today I want to share with you 10 MOST NEW NATURAL WONDERS OF THE WORLD (mcm public speaking lak)


Great Barrier Reef

The world's largest coral reef system, the Great Barrier Reef is home to over 1,500 species of fish, 200 species of birds and numerous species of whales, dolphins and sea turtles. It extends about 1,250 miles along the coast of Queensland, Australia, and spans a total area of about 14,300 square miles. The reef has historically been a well-protected, pristine haven for delicate coral and abundant marine life. However, this habitat is at risk due to overfishing and pollution, in addition to rising sea temperatures likely caused by global warming.


Milford Sound

This South Island fjord, created by receding glaciers, is one of New Zealand's best-known scenic attractions. With an annual rainfall of 270 inches, Milford Sound is also one of the wettest places in the world. It stretches nine miles inland from the Tasman Sea, and is most easily visited by boat tours that last one to two hours. Visitors can enjoy gazing up the sheer rock walls that rise 3,900 feet or more on each side, and may catch a glimpse of the seals, penguins and dolphins that inhabit these waters.


Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls was created by the same glacial activity that formed the Great Lakes 10,000 years ago. A popular tourist destination, especially for honeymooners, the falls are on the border of the U.S. and Canada. Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side, is about 2,600 feet wide, while the American Falls is 1,060 feet wide. Both face the Canadian shore, so the best views are available from the Canadian side of the Niagara River. For over a century, numerous daredevils have attempted to challenge the falls. Tightrope walkers, jumpers and, in 1901, the first person in a barrel — a schoolteacher from Michigan — have all risked the plunge.


Mont Blanc

Western Europe's highest mountain, at 15,781 feet, lies between Italy and France in the Alps mountain range. The two countries are connected by both a 7 1/4-mile tunnel beneath the mountain, and a gondola across the nearby 12,600-foot Aiguille du Midi Mountain. Known as "the white lady" (La Dame Blanche in French; Monte Bianco in Italian), Mont Blanc is popular with climbers, skiers and snowboarders. In 2007, Europe's highest portable toilets were installed at 14,000 feet, aiming to serve 30,000 visitors annually.


Bikini Atoll

Part of the Marshall Islands just north of the equator in the Pacific Ocean, this atoll includes Bikini Island, which is famous for two reasons: First, in the 1940s and 1950s, several nuclear bombs were tested there, and second, the two-piece swimsuit was named after it in 1946. Prior to the first nuclear tests, the U.S. designated the lagoon as a ship graveyard during World War II. Today, the naval wrecks are popular with scuba divers. Though some residual radioactivity remains, measured levels have been deemed not hazardous.
