LAKBAYAN: Puerto Princesa Underground River is Officially One of the New 7 Wonders of Nature!

ITS OFFICIAL! After being announced as one of the provisional contenders of the New 7 Wonders of Nature announced this January 28 by Mayor Edward Hagedorn, also confirmed by N7WN President Bernard Weber, who is also impressed with the site after visiting it months ago. With intense campaign from various organizations including the Department of Tourism, Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUG) was successfully pushed by the Philippine online community as votes are made online. 

Also in the New 7 Wonders of Nature list are the Amazon, Halong Bay, Iguazo Falls, Jeju Island, Komodo, and Table Mountain. Mayor Hagedorn also thanked President Aquino and other officials who helped in the campaign. At the start of the nominations, several natural sites were also pushed by Pinoys like Mayon Volcano, Tubataha Reef and Chocolate Hills to name a few.

Government officials said to have an official announcement on Monday. The prestige of being on the New 7 Wonders of Nature will indeed help boost tourism in Puerto Princesa and Palawan but also aims to teach people the importance of nature.

With this triumph, we love to have this now as an itinerary for LAKBAYAN this year 2012!
