Puerto Princesa Underground River Wins New 7 Wonders

We Filipinos are really proud of our own Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) as it is already official where it has named as one of the world's New 7 Wonders of Nature which was announced by New Seven Wonders of Nature Foundation in Zurich, Switzerland last January 28, 2012. 

We thank you for all those Filipinos from around the world who did support via online and SMS voting. This spot battle won together with South Korea's Jeju Island, the Amazon in South America, Halong Bay in Vietanam, Igazu Falls which can be found between Argentina and Brazil, the famous Komodo in Indonesia and Table Mountain in South Africa.

Based on the latest report, tourists in the Philippines have grown and there are a lot of tourists visiting Puerto Princesa Underground River. For those who haven't been there yet. I'll show you some photographs taken in PPUR.

As you can see, it's not just a underground river but it filled with very crystal clear water, preserve environment, and the very long river passing through the cave and in fact it is 8.2 kilometer that flows through the cave before it flows out to the West Philippine Sea. The cave also is a live cave. You can see different creatures, limestone karst mountain landscape, the formation of stalagmites and stalactites, history engraved and many more. 

So enjoy your trip in Puerto Princesa Underground River because It's More Fun in the Philippines!
