Traveling to UNESCO sites with Kids

Corner in Ankor

Did you know there are currently over 900 UNESCO World Heritage Sites around the world? I also found out that there are over 200 in Asia Pacific. So, wouldn't it be cool to set a goal to see all of them? At least those in your area?

I am always pleased to see when a World Heritage site gets recognized for UNESCO heritage status. It doesn't mean all of the destruction will stop or that the site will be preserved in perpetuity. What it does mean though is that people at least are thinking about preserving the sites that have significant heritage connections to that area. I pulled a list off of the UNESCO site and updated here on the blog in order to keep track of those sites that the kids have visited. While we are not always on the road, one the key reasons we take the kids traveling is that we want them to learn about the World. The UNESCO sites are a great way introduce history in a real life setting for them. Next stop will be the temples and city of Angkor in Cambodia this holiday season.

So, as I continue to update the list and add sites we have seen, here are some of the sites we have seen. Where do you want to go?

I want to go to the Great wall. My v is from China, and we're thinking about going to China maybe next year to visit his parent. We have been dating for 10 years and I still haven't met his parents yet. I think it's about time to go see them since we just recently got engaged. Great post again!
