Which one is more famous - the Banaue Rice Terraces or the Great Wall of China?

Dr Abe V Rotor
Banaue Rice Terraces, Philippines and The Great Wall of China

I walked the rice terraces
from Earth to moon and back;
on the moon I saw the Great Wall
gray, with color of crimson spill,
cries of Genghis Khan I heard,
and echoes of moaning chill.


I walked the rice terraces round the Earth
many times the length of the Great Wall,
green on one side, golden on the other;
songs I heard are thanksgiving,
in ritual rhythm rise echoing a past, 
a past still living.~


NOTE: Both the Banaue Rice Terrces and the Great Wall of China are among the top wonders of the world and adjudged UNESCO Heritage sites.
