PH among 40 ‘most beautiful’ countries

New York-based Condé Nast Traveler (CNT) has recognized the Philippines’ charm once again, listing it as one of the 40 most beautiful countries in the world.

The Philippines, along with South Africa, Canada, Australia, Mexico, and the United States, was cited for the natural attractions it has to offer.

“There are more than 7,000 islands in the Philippines, and they easily number among the most beautiful in the world,” CNT writer Caitlin Morton wrote in a June 2 article.

“The Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River National Park in Palawan encompasses mangrove forests, one of the world’s most impressive cave systems, and an underground river. The Chocolate Hills of Bohol Island consist of an estimated 1,776 grass-covered domes that are mysteriously uniform in shape. The rice terraces of both Banaue and the Philippine Cordilleras provide panoramic views of every shade of green imaginable,” she added. (PNA)
