Hiroshima

The city of Hiroshima encountered a devastating nuclear bomb attack by the United States Army Air Forces on August 6th 1945. To this effect, most of the city was destroyed but has since been rebuilt, becoming the largest city in the Chugoku region. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial (now a UNESCO World Heritage site) serves as a memorial to this historic event.

The Great Wall of China

The iconic Great Wall began as a defence system against invasions from the north. It became the world's largest military structure and border control, as well as encouraging trade under the Ming dynasty (1368- 1644). Today, it is an extremely popular UNESCO World Heritage site with the entire structure measuring an incredible 13,171 miles in length.

Nilgiri Mountain Railway

The Nilgiri Mountain Railway runs for 30 miles through the slopes of the Nilgiri Mountain range, in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. One of 3 mountain railways of India, it enjoys coveted UNESCO World Heritage status. The train, mostly hauled by steam engine, travels from Mettupalayam to Ooty, and is the only rack railway in India. Plans for construction began in 1854 when the British started frequenting Ooty to get some respite from India's tropical summers, and the views have changed little since then; passing the verdant forests of the Blue Mountains, so-called because the entire range turns blue when the Kurinji flowers bloom once every 12 years.
