8th Natural Wonder on Earth Halong Bay

 watching the world’s interest in Halong Bay. In the Official New 7 Wonders of Nature Halong Bay is one of 28 finalists in a global vote on the seven most spectacular natural spaces in the world. We won’t know until Nov. 11, 2011 (11.11.11) whether the world thinks Halong Bay is one of the world’s most stunning natural landscapes, or seascapes.

So much is going to go into the winning of that designation. Politics. PR Campaigns. There’s just no telling who wins. But it’s been no small thing for Halong Bay to be culled from, first 440 different locations in 220 countries, and then from among 77 locations to be among the 28 finalists.

In early September 2010, the voting put Halong Bay in the #2 spot. Today, as I check, we’ve dropped some. But we’ll rise again! By the time all’s said and done, more than a billion votes will be factored into the seven designees.
