These are 2018's nominees for the UNESCO World Heritage List

Incredible natural beauty, amazing archaeological treasures,

historic cityscape -- what makes a destination worthy of UNESCO World Heritage status? A stunning selection of must-see spots are among the 2018 nominees to join the extensive list of World Heritage properties. Currently in session in Manama, Bahrain, UNESCO's World Heritage Committee is debating which sites to add to its catalog. So far, the Ancient City of Qalhat in Oman, known for its incredible archaeological remains, has already been awarded World Heritage Status. So has Al-Ahsa Oasis, an evolving cultural landscape in Saudi Arabia, and Kenya's Thimlich Ohinga archaeological site. Nominees still to be debated include the funeral and memorial sites of World War I in Belgium and France and -- one for fizz fans -- the beautiful Prosecco Hills of Italy's Conegliano and Valdobbiadene areas.
