HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese beauty representative Nguyễn Thị Liên Phương won the first runner-up title at the World Miss Tourism Ambassador beauty contest which concluded on Saturday night in the Philippines.
The finale night of the beauty contest was celebrated with the participation of 50 contestants. The Vietnamese contestant’s name was announced among the top 21 and top 11, from where she went on to win second place.
Phương’s title is equivalent to the Miss Eco Tourism 2017 title. The first prize of World Miss Tourism Ambassador went to Miss Russia Alena Raeva, while tourism ambassadors from Chile, Germany and South Africa were the others who finished in the top five.
Phương said she was pleased with her achievement. “I put in my best efforts not only during the 10 days of the contest, but also for months before my first participation in an international beauty pageant.”
Born in the southern province of Long An in 1994, Phương earlier won the runner-up title of Miss Tourism Vietnam 2017 before competing in World Miss Tourism Ambassador.
A recently-established pageant based in the United States, World Miss Tourism Ambassador 2017 is not only a beauty arena, but also a channel for promoting tourism, culture and tourism services of any country that sends a delegate to this contest. — VNS
