It is time for our country to show the whole world how beautiful it is.
Its chance to land on the prestigious list of the 7 Wonders of Nature depends on you. Four of our natural destinations are contenders for this much-coveted list: the magnificent landscape of the Chocolate Hills in Bohol, the rich marine sanctuary of the Tubbataha reef in Palawan, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River Park, and the perfect cone-shaped Mayon Volcano in Bicol.
After last year’s highly successful democratic campaign in electing the new Seven Wonders of the World, in which over 100 million voters participated, New7Wonders has come up with the 7 Wonders of Nature to showcase the magnificent natural locations around the globe.

Our destinations may be safe in their rankings as of now but with the popularity of the campaign, it is possible that more and more nominees will enter the scene.
