Not my country, but couldnt resist:

1.Great Wall, worlds largest manmade structure, entire length of all sections - 8851 km








2. Grand Canal, 1400 years old 1776 km long (worlds largest manmade waterway, and dwarfing the great wall as pictured below):







3. Forbidden City (worlds largest palace - 980 buildings and 8700 rooms or chambers)






4. Xian Tombs - 500 imperial tombs and pyramids, of which only a few have been explored, with the Terracotta Army just being
one of them (which has so far taken 36 years, and will take another 80 to completely excavate). The grandest tomb has never been
excavated but took 700,000 labourers 38 years to construct.








5. Potala Palace, Lhasa, Tibet - 370-656ft tall, 1300 ft wide, for centuries the tallest building in the world








6. Longmen Grottoes- 1,400 hand carved caves housing 100,000 statues:








7. Mogao Caves, worlds largest depository of Buddhist art collected over 1,000 years from 366 AD, in 492 temples, 735 caves with over 11,000 frescoes, 2400 statues, and thousands of ancient manuscripts

Oh my...the marvels of architecture in your country are a swimming pool, a theme park and a ferris wheel?! That would be really poor! What about your historic architectural treasures?

They don't have to be ancient. I like his choices and I would love to swim in that pool one day.

some countries have "7 wonders of architecture" so un-artistic that it really makes me sad.

architecture is not the same thing as construction.

as for the Reichstag, it was wonderful before the fire, I don't think its wonderful anymore, and it's certainly not comparable with some baroque castles of Germany that are not in the list.

Well Singapore is a futuristic city so it's fitting that their wonders are modern.
