Wonders of the SL world – Camury Reporting...

Second Life is filled with amazing and extraordinary places, and many of them become favorites for those who enjoy exploring. Some of these wonderful places represent perfect virtual replicas of their real life counterparts and certainly deserve a visit.

These are my picks of five fabulous places for you to visit in Second Life.

Machu Picchu

The mysterious city of Machu Picchu is one of the biggest attractions in all of South America. The ruins rise above the clouds at 7,979 feet above sea level. Built around the middle of the 15th century, it is the main conquest of the Inca Empire.

In Second Life you can visit and see the virtual replica of Machu Picchu and explore the stairways, temples, aqueducts and observation points scattered over a mountainous landscape resembling a maze. Machu Picchu is suitable for adventurers or those who enjoy culture and history.

Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is a steep gorge carved by the Colorado River in the state of Arizona in the United States. This formation is part of the Grand Canyon National Park and you can experience the graphic replica of this wonderful work of nature in Second Life. Many visitors, however, do not know everything the place can offer them, such as the distinct and inspiring landscapes and the many outdoor adventures for those who love an adrenaline rush. Take a balloon at the entrance of the park and explore the cliffs of this awe inspiring tourist spot.

The Grand Canyon is a place of grandiose beauty that is and inspiration to its visitors. It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is one of the greatest sights in the world — the longest wall in the world, an awe-inspiring feat of ancient defensive architecture. Its winding path over rugged country and steep mountains takes in some great scenery.
It's often said that the First Emperor of Qin built the Great Wall. Actually he was not the first to build it. See below:
Great Wall History — Key Events
Zhou Dynasty: The (Pre-) Warring States Period (770–221 BC)
State overlords built state border walls.
The Qin Dynasty (221–207 BC)
The First Emperor of Qin linked the Great Wall sections on China's northern border.
The Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD)
Han Wudi extended the Great Wall west to Yumen Pass and beyond.
The Ming Dynasty (1368–1644)
Hero General Qi Jiguang rebuilt the Great Wall around Beijing.

The majestic Great Wall was built with wisdom, dedication, blood, sweat, and tears. Families were separated, and many workers died and were interred as part of the Great Wall itself.

The Great Wall of China is also considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Great Wall consists of several walls, built during several dynasties over approximately two millennia. If, in the past, its function was essentially defensive, at the present it is a symbol of China and a sought after tourist attraction.

The virtual representation is worth a visit.  Have fun and explore this great work in Second Life. Don’t forget to visit the Panda Bears.


Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs.  Venice is famous for the beauty of its architecture and works of art.  A part of the city is considered a World Heritage site, along with the lagoon.

Take a gondola ride or stroll through the streets of the replica of this beautiful city in Second Life. Explore the canals, the magnificent squares and bridges and even stop for coffee or wine while enjoying the view of the lagoon.

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.  It is 324 meters high and was built in the 19th century. The Tower has become a world icon of France and one of the most recognized and visited structures in the world.

In Second Life you can explore the virtual replica of this magnificent structure and visit the square and surrounding buildings. If you’re looking for an infusion of adrenaline, you should climb up to the top of the tower and enjoy jumping of it with a parachute.

There’s nothing better than exploring and getting to know the beautiful landscapes and monuments that abound in Second Life.  For those who prefer beaches, waterfalls, snow, pyramids ...  there is something for all tastes and there arelways some interesting places to meet.  Go on an adventure in Second Life.
