26 Oct 2011: Vote now for the Puerto Princesa Underground River
The Puerto Princesa Underground River is our country’s finalist for inclusion in the New Seven Wonders of Nature.
I remember visiting in 2008 and being in awe of the well-preserved ecosystem surrounding the river: monitor lizards roaming around, monkeys playing in the forest canopy above and very clear water. I hope that tourism impact to the environment will be kept to a minimum.
If you visit, do remember to safeguard your belongings. Monkeys abound in the surrounding trees and they frequently snatch items from unsuspecting tourists.
Also, please note that swimming in the area near the entrance of the underground river due to its depth.
Please show your support by voting. Deadline for voting is on 11 Nov 2011.
