One of Palawan’s tourist attraction the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) has made it to the list of the official New7Wonders of Nature (N7WN).

N7WN president Bernard Weber confirmed the news during a press conference at the Heritage Hotel in Pasay City on January 28, 2012.

“When your very own President Aquino came out in support of the PPUR campaign, I knew that this country was taking the New7Wonders of Nature seriously. Fans of PPUR all over the world responded to his call for action by voting in record numbers and today’s confirmation is the well-earned reward for this extraordinary display of enthusiasm.”

Puerto Princesa Mayor Edward Hagedorn, who was also present at the press conference, also expressed his delight of PPUR making it to the list.


“This confirmation is wonderful news for Puerto Princesa, and a great example of how now its more fun to be in the Philippines. World-wide exposure of our natural beauty on this level is critical both for tourism and for our image nationally and internationally”
