Train Street (Vietnam)
The attraction of the train street lies in the fact that people can sit, relax, drink coffee, and enjoy food next to the railway. Every time the train comes, people wash up on both sides of the road and take pictures.
However, this area has been closed because of potential risks to visitors. The closure also caused mixed opinions. Some argue that the street improves income for the surrounding neighborhood, while most are released that potential traffic accidents are prevented.
Nohmul Pyramid (Belize)
This pyramid is listed by National Geographic World Atlas as one of the 15 most important points of the ancient Mayan culture.
In 2013, several construction companies in Belize used excavators and bulldozers to destroy part of the pyramid to get limestone. As a result, 70% of the pyramids were destroyed.
This pyramid is on private land but it is protected by the government. Therefore, those who destroy the pyramid have received heavy punishment.

The shops inside were relocated to the Toyosu market in 2018.

White and pink stairs at Lake Rotomahana (New Zealand)
These pink and white mixed stairs were once considered a symbol of New Zealand. They are considered the “8th wonder” in the world. However, the volcanic eruption of 1886 destroyed this wonder.
According to some theories, the white steps have disappeared, but the pink ones are still hidden under the surface of the lake. It’s covered with mud. If the pink stairs are found, the world can admire this wonder again.
