Cox’s Bazar swings back to second wonder

The world’s longest unbroken beach Cox’s Bazar was yesterday promoted to the second position in the race for the new seven wonders of nature.

Earlier, Cox’s Bazar ranked third in “Group G” of a total of seven categories under the New7Wonders Foundation.

The overwhelming support of the citizens of the country, including expatriates, helped Cox’s Bazar and the Sundarbans hold on to the top, Bangladesh Parjatan Corporation said in a statement yesterday.

The Sundarbans ranked third in “Group E” for forests, natural parks and reserves, according to the website for the New7Wonders Foundation.
