Francis Ford Coppola and Miss World support two New7Wonders of Nature Nominees

Two nominees in the New7Wonders of Nature campaign recently received votes from very prominent visitors. Legendary Hollywood director Francis Ford Coppola cast his vote for Iguassu Falls, which straddle the border between Argentina and Brazil, while Miss World voted for Ha Long Bay in Vietnam.

Miss Universe Voting 164x220The current Miss World, Zhang Zi Lin, expressed her support for Ha Long Bay during a visit to Vietnam which included inaugurating numerous charity houses. Also eighty contestants of the Miss Universe 2008 on June 27-28 visited northeastern Quang Ninh province where they called at well-known Ha Long Bay and voted for it as one of the world’s seven natural wonders (see picture on the left).

Francis Ford Coppola, best known perhaps for the Godfather series of movies, has been moved by the majesty of Iguassu Falls since he first saw them in 2003. He commented that “One of the most spectacular landscapes I've seen and one of the most incredible places I've visited are the Iguassu Falls” He noted that Iguassu Falls are like "ten Niagara Falls together.”
