New7Wonders Cities: 14 finalists revealed

The official finalists that have been voted through the last round of the New7Wonders Cities campaign have been revealed in Zurich. Bernard Weber, Founder-President of New7Wonders congratulated the candidates and said “This is a memorable day for all involved in the 14 successful city campaigns. The short list is as inspiring as it is enlightening.”

14 Official Finalists are:

  • Barcelona (Spain),
  • Beirut (Lebanon),
  • Chicago (United States),
  • Doha (Qatar),
  • Durban (South Africa),
  • Havana (Cuba),
  • Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia),
  • La Paz (Bolivia),
  • London (United Kingdom),
  • Mexico City(Mexico),
  • Perth (Australia),
  • Quito (Ecuador),
  • Reykjavik (Iceland) and
  • Vigan (Philippines).


La Paz, Mexico City and Quito are Latin American destinations that did make it into the finalists. We are surprised Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires aren’t on the list. What do you think? What other cities should be in the official finalists?
