Xem anh phong to
Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay has been named in a temporary list of the world’s 10 new wonders of nature by the New Open World Corporation, four days before the poll ends. By November 6, Ha Long Bay had more than 8 million voting messages.

The others in the top ten include: the Dead Sea in Israel, Palestine, and Jordan; the Grand Canyon in the US; the Great Barrier Reef off Australia and Papua New Guinea); Jeita Grotto cave in Lebanon; Jeju Island in South Korea; Komodo Island in Indonesia; Puerto Princesa Underground River in the Philippines; the Sunderbans in Bangladesh and India; and Vesuvius Mountain in Italy.

Eamonn Fitzgerald, who is in charge of the New Open World Corporation, said the list could change in the remaining days of the campaign before the final list was released November 11.

Tran Nhat Hoang, director of the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s Tourism Promotion Center, said that Ha Lang Bay has great hope to enter the list of seven wonders if Vietnamese continue sending messages to vote for the site.

The Tourism Promotion Center has mobilized 300 volunteers to join online forums to urge members to vote for Ha Long Bay.

To vote for Ha Long Bay, one has to go to the website http://www.new7wonders.com and follow instruction on the website or send a text message (“Halong”) to 147.

On September 27 New7Wonders Foundation chairman Bernard Weber announced that Ha Long was among the 28 finalist candidates for the new seven wonders of nature.
