CNN’s travel site, CNNGo, listed the "Top 50 Best Dive Sites in the World." Among the cited dive spots were two Philippine locations: Tubbataha, Palawan, Philippines (No. 8) and The Canyons, Puerto Galera, Philippines (No. 44).

CNN’s travel site, CNNGo, listed the "Top 50 Best Dive Sites in the World." Among the cited dive spots were two Philippine locations: Tubbataha, Palawan, Philippines (No. 8) and The Canyons, Puerto Galera, Philippines (No. 44). (See the list below.)

 

Note: There’s a typo in the numbering of the spots in the CNNGo list. (There’s no No. 41 and it has two No. 45s, which does not make sense since there have to be 50 places listed.) For clarity, we listed the places with their correct numbers based on their chronology in the original version of the list.
