Admit It, You Have No Idea What It Means To Be A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Do You?
Published on January 10, 2012
Of the 55 or so sites I've visited thus far I can actually see why the vast majority made the list. There might be one or two I'm not so sure on, but they nearly all actually represent some sort of significant historical and cultural stature. It makes sense. There could easily be more, I'm sure, but a lot of that comes down to the cash involved and the politics of getting on the list.
That said, there are some sites where I've found the surrounding areas more impressive than the actual designated site, but those, too, are not particularly common.
