ĐÀ NẴNG — The central city has selected the best 33 of 70 qualified candidates for the final round of the Miss Tourism Đà Nẵng contest to be organised on March 5, sparking a positive series of travel and cultural activities in the tourism recovery plan throughout 2022.
Head of the contest organising committee, Trần Thị Lê Chi, general director of Rồng Tiên Sa communication company, said more than 400 competitors nationwide had posted their clips and files online, but only 70 were qualified in line with contest regulations.
Chi said the final selection eventually was a list of 33 candidates for the final round in Đà Nẵng in early March.
Vice director of the city’s tourism department Nguyễn Xuân Bình said the contest would ignite the tourism promotion plan in 2022 with the city strongly committed to reviving the tourism industry after a two-year damage by COVID-19.
He said the Miss Tourism competitors would help boost the image of the Đà Nẵng tourism, landscape and people as well as tourism services in luring tourists to the city in 2022.
“It will be a significant event in promoting culture, tourism in the city, and attracting more tourists to the pristine beach and central Việt Nam through amazing entertainment and festival activities,” Bình said.
The event’s organising committee said a total prize of VNĐ2 billion (US$87,000) had been reserved for the winners, and seven sub-titles including Top models; Miss fashion; Miss Sport; the beach pageant; the most talented; communications; and kindness awards.
Top winners of the event will get berths at Miss Việt Nam and Miss World Việt Nam to be organised later this year.
