Vigan reflects our country’s rich culture and history. As Filipinos proud of our own heritage, let us help make Vigan our very own world wonder.
Vigan is one of 28 finalists in the search. As the lone nominee from the Philippines, it aims to duplicate the success of the Puerto Princesa Underground River, which was named one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in 2012.
I hope that by gaining the title, Vigan will be able to attract more local and foreign visitors, and inspire appreciation of our heritage.This is an opportunity for us to showcase the beauty of our country, and motivate others to protect and preserve their cultural legacy so future generations will be able to appreciate and cherish it.
