Palawan Underground River Officially among New7Wonders of the World
The results come after a long consultation process lasting from December 2007 to July 2009, when world citizens were asked to put forward sites which they deemed were natural wonders. The poll organised by Swiss foundation New7Wonders has attracted great interest.
Here the list of New7Wonders
The Amazon rainforest
Vietnam’s Halong Bay
Argentina’s Iguazu Falls
South Korea’s Jeju Island
Philippines’ Puerto Princesa Underground River
South Africa’s Table Mountain
More than a million votes were cast to trim the list of more than 440 contenders in over 220 countries down to a shortlist of 77.
The group was then further cut to the 28 finalists by a panel of experts.
