CHO­QUE­QUIRAO

Of­ten called “the other Machu Pic­chu,” this 15th-cen­tury Peru­vian citadel, which is spread across 1,800 hectares, is just as strik­ing as its nearby sis­ter city—but much less touristy since it re­quires a four-day hike to reach it.

SHI CHENG

You’ll need scuba gear to ex­plore the 265 stone arches of this 12th-cen­tury “Lion City” near Shang­hai be­cause they’re un­der­wa­ter in Thou­sand Is­land Lake, which was formed by a hy­dro dam in 1959.

AT­LANTIS

Is this famed un­der­wa­ter city re­ally lost or is it the ul­ti­mate myth­i­cal hoax con­cocted in an­cient Greece by Plato? Writer Mark Adams sets out on a global jour­ney to find out in his new book, Meet Me in At­lantis.
