Every so often I meet people whose travel bucket lists include UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Most folks talk about those sites which are most famous and familiar, e.g., like the Great Wall of China, Taj Mahal, Machu Picchu, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, etc. But, what about places which are lesser known to the general world public? There are over 1,000 WHS around the globe, many of which a lot of people don’t know exist. I love the idea of taking the road less traveled, and I have found some of the more obscure WH sites to be truly amazing. Listed below are a few of them, with the dates of their WH designations. Some of them were already on my own travel bucket list, others are new to me. How many do you know?
