For me, Viaduc de Millau bridge, the tallest bridge in the world, will always be the most amazing engineering marvel. In France, having seen that personally, it’s completely beautiful and makes you wonder how did they do it. And one of the shocking things about is that it was built in just 3 years (costing €394 million). Many countries can’t even complete a simple bridge in a decade.
Aside from the Millau Bridge, there are handful of engineering marvels that are incredible and mind-numbing. Palm Island in Dubai is a very common name that always comes in this list. It’s beautiful and one of the world’s biggest home for luxury hotels, high-end homes and theme parks. Burj Khalifa is another very popular and common that makes onlookers go in awe about this marvellous engineering feat.
Another name that comes to my mind is National Stadium in Beijing, China. It is also called bird’s nest thanks to its unique and wow-worthy appearance from the outside. The stadium can home more than 80,000 people and is counted among one of the best in the world.
Here are few of other engineering marvels that you (and me) should definitely check out once in a lifetime:
Hoover dam in Nevada, USA;
Langkawi Sky Bridge in Malaysia;
Panama Canal in Panama;
Laerdal Canal in Norway;
The Rolling Bridge in London.
Of course, the are plenty more names in this list.
