Reviews of 2015 WHS


Champagne
'The inscription of Champagne did remind me the first time when I visited the city of Reims in 2006.'
Climats, terroirs of Burgundy
'I visited this newly inscribed WHS on two occasions once in July 2013 and once in May 2015.'
 
San Antonio Missions
'The 5 Missions of San Antonio are just one of the few extraordinary sites that are a must see while visiting San Antonio.'
San Antonio Missions
'Remember the Alamo and don’t forget other four missions is maybe the words that will be in every tourist magazines of the lovely city of San Antonio especially after June 2015 when finally the San Antonio Missions become the first World Heritage Site for Texas.'
 
Arab-Norman Palermo
'I visited all the sites in this soon-to-be inscribed WHS in May 2015. Palermo itself has 7 sites.'
Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution
'From sites and components that become the third industrial site which Japan nominated to become a World Heritage Site, I was fortunate to see at least 9 sites during my short visit to Kyushu especially in Kagoshima and Nagasaki.'
 
Susa
'Susa is not as spectacular as Persepolis but still has a lot to offer for tourists and archaeologists.'
Singapore Botanic Gardens
'Many visitors to the Singapore Botanic Gardens (SBG) will be underwhelmed, perhaps because of a tendency to treat the gardens as a natural site.'
 
Aqueduct of Padre Tembleque
'As a spectacle the aqueduct is pretty impressive but the story behind it reveals an interesting aspect of the European settlement of the Americas.'
Champagne
'I visited this TWHS in June 2013 unknowingly but in November 2014 I made up for it by staying at a small champagne-maker.'
 
Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus District
'I have visited Hamburg several times and a stroll through the Speicherstadt and the Kontorhaus district was always a must.'
Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus District
'I visited these sites in Hamburg in October 2014. They are truly unique and in my humble opinion deserve inscription as they truly possess OUV.'
 
San Antonio Missions
'I was travelling hitchhiking around USA together with a girl from Montreal, Canada.'
Singapore Botanic Gardens
'When I first heard that the authorities were considering this nomination, I was extremely skeptical about it.'
 
Singapore Botanic Gardens
'On my three days business trip to Singapore, I found a time to visit the famous Singapore Botanic Gardens which actually seemed to be no problem as the garden opens everyday from 5 AM to midnight, but I also wanted to visit the famed National Orchid Garden too and this section only opens till 7 PM, so after meeting I directly went to the park and arrived at 4 PM, a perfect late afternoon time to see the places and stayed in there until 8 PM before my dinner.'
Baptism Site "Bethany Beyond the Jordan"
'I visited Bethany beyond the Jordan with a tour guide when travelling from the Dead Sea towards Israel and Palestine in .'
 
Forth Bridge
'I visited the Forth Bridge in 2007. The picturesque monument is stunning. My experience at the bridge was based on an afternoon visit to North Queensferry, and travelling across the Firth of Forth itself several times.'
Susa
'Susa had been one of the most important cities of our world for thousands of years, and its a big shame that it is so ignored in our time.'

Baekje Historic Areas
'The two most important sites in this serial property are the Tomb of King Muyeong and Mireuksa Temple.'
