These Are the 2019 Nominees for UNESCO's List of World Heritage Sites

A bird-filled estuary along China's Yalu River, ancient Bagan temples peering out above treetops in Myanmar and an Alpine road in Austria popular with thrill seekers are among this year's nominations for the UNESCO World Heritage List. This week the committee responsible for the list begins 11 days of deliberations in Baku, Azerbaijan, to decide which destinations should be added to a portfolio that already names 1,092 sites in 167 countries.
