The totally amazing 'Machu Picchu' in Cusco Peru.
I have no idea how, they built there?
But...these people were something else!
The picture I added to this question is a place in Egypt called Abu Simbel and that is where I would like to go. I'm absolutely fascinated with ancient Egypt, and in particular the Pharaoh Ramses II.

One day when all these crazy kids grow up I'll go there!
It looks amazing, and you will get there...just keep saying it :)

Hi Meggf....keep planning your Egypt trip! It's absolutely amazing! Many years' ago, flew from Athens (saw Parthenon & went to Delphi) to Cairo. To see the Pyramids from the air was goosebumps material! Saw them on the ground, went inside Cheops' & came out at 16th level & climbed down from there! Cairo Museum, then flew to Abu Simbel. Cruised from Aswan to Luxor, seeing all the Temples & various Burial Chambers, including Tu-tankh-amun's & SETI I, Hapshetsut's Temple etc etc etc.
Had always wanted to go to Egypt, & was NOT disappointed!

The Pyramids
The Egyptian Pyramids, to be more specific.
Worth seeing. They ARE huge when you see them up close, specifically if you have to climb down from the level XVI of Cheops' Pyramid! Good fun!

Hmm, I would like to see all of those mentioned: Machu Pichu, and some of the Egyptian Pyramids (and statues). But most of all I think I'd like to see the Parthenon in Greece.
I don't know that it counts as really "ancient" but the old castles and such throughout Britain. As well as Stonehenge. I think that Europe gets overlooked when talking about checking out "ancient" stuff! I have no plans to travel overseas though so I will settle for exploring ancient Aboriginal caves, and paintings here in Australia.
Definitely! I want to see all the castles throughout the UK as well.

A lot of my travels to date have been based around seeing ruins. I've done two trips to see the Mayan temples in Mexico, Belize and Guatamala and have visited Cambodia to see the amazing temples around the country including those in Angkor Wat. I have visited Egypt but we were in the Luxor area so enjoyed the ruins and tombs there, but would love to visit the pyramids. I am yet to do Machu Picchu but it's on the list for when the kids are older. I love history and seeing some of these amazingly preserved ruins is a real glance into the past.
I cant choose one. I watched a documentary some time ago and wrote down the top ten ancient ruins in the world. I would love to visit them all starting with the Stonhenge

I've been to The Great Wall of China - parts of it are intact and parts are crumbling in ruins. It's an impressive destination and highly recommended.

I'd like to do a massive monument tour of the world! Stonehenge was great but being able to walk among, and touch, the standing stones at the Ring o' Brodgar, erected between 2500 BC and 2000 BC, was truly amazing. I've learnt to look beyond the tourist places.
On my bucket list are South America and Middle East/North Africa.
Have always wanted to journey from Turkey, & visit every country's ruins down to Iran.
Maybe, one day, if there's anything left!
Other sites I'd love to go to are:
Leptis Magna
The Cave of the Swimmers'
Manchu Picchu
Fly over, seeing the Nazca Lines
All the ruins after Mexico, through Meso-America,
& into the countries' in the northern part of Sth America
The Entombed Warriors' at Xian

Roll-in big 'Lotto' win, & I'd be off faster than the 'proverbial'!
