Philippines is part of the NEW SEVEN WONDERS of Nature

Some of the beautiful spots in the Phlippines are nominated in the New 7 Wonders of Nature in the World. As a proud Filipino, I am very happy about this and though I haven't been to these places before but I know how wonderful they are that is because for one reason, they are located in the Philippines.

Here are the nominees from the Philippines:

Tubbataha Reef - an island of coral reefs that encircles a lagoon, located in Sulu Sea. It is protected by Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park to keep it's natural beauty.

Was also declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on December 1993.

Chocolate Hills - composed of over a thousand of perfectly shaped cones located in Bohol. It is the Bohol's most famous tourist attraction.

The hills are all covered with green which turns brown during dry season. But until now it was not yet known how these wonderful hills were formed though there have been lots of theories of some geologists and some legends that the Bohol people would tell for the reason of the formation of these hills.

Mayon Volcano(Mt. Mayon) - an active volcano which was known for it's near perfectly con e shape, located in the province of Albay.

This is the most active volcano in the country, erupted over 47 times in the past 400 years, because it is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire.

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park - also known as St. Paul's Subterranean River National Park, located in Saint Paul Mountain Range on the northern coast of the island of Palawan.

The longest navigable underground river which measures 8.2 kilometer that winds through a spectacular cave before emptying into the South China Sea.

You can cast your votes on for whatever place you want to be part of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in the World.
