Seven New Wonders of Nature

Everyone is celebrating because The Underground River in Puerto Princesa makes it to the New Seven Wonders of Nature. But when I checked their website, it seems that the list is just provisional. Eventually, votes will still be reviewed and a final list will be announced next year. Well, let’s just hope for the best.

Friends, here are the new seven wonders of nature, in random order! (As if I know the order, haha!)

The Amazon Rainforest – Brazil

Known for its piranhas, carnivals, diverse ecosystem and its lush rainforest, the Amazon represents over half of the forest remaining rainforest. Beat that! Its river is also the largest in the world, and a fun trivia, not a single bridge crosses the Amazon River, maybe because of the piranhas, crocodiles, and the other creatures lurking on its waters.

Halong Bay – Vietnam

 

The bay is known for its limestone karsts and isles in various shapes and sizes. I cannot find a picture on the web that doesn’t have a boat on it, haha! I still prefer El Nido and Caramoan, though. Love your own, bakit ba?

Iguazu Falls – Argentina

Definitely, my favorite on the list. It is one of the largest waterfall on the planet. This beauty has 275 waterfalls all in all, and the tallest one of them all is 80 meters in height.

Jeju Island – Korea

I love Korea, and I also love Jeju Island. I know that Spring Waltz was shot here. It has Korea’s tallest mountain/a Dormant Volcano. What is a Dormant Volcano? Think Mount Pinatubo. Hehe

Komodo Island – Indonesia

Komodo Island is known for its rainforest and Komodo Dragon. A Komodo Dragon is a carnivore – meaning eating meat! Hehe. I’ve read somewhere that there saliva are deadly.

Table Mountain – South Africa

 

This is the only natural site on the planet that has a constellation named after it. The flat-topped mountain has withstood six million years of erosion and hosts the richest, yet smallest floral kingdom on earth with over 1,470 floral species.

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park – The Philippines

Super Duper Like and Love! Hehe. I’m planning to go here next year, its is the longest navigational underground river in the Planet. A distinguishing feature of the river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea.

I am just hoping that our Underground River will still make it on the list next year. Well, something as beautiful as our PPUR definitely deserves to be on the list.

Btw, all photos were from Google. Ciao Everyone!
