Before taking part, Thi Mo said the competition was the final global beauty pageant she would contend and would try her utmost to win. She was able to make her dream come true, winning the highest title of the world pageant.

Among the 50 contestants, Phan Thi Mo places in the top 18 for Best Body, and receives the commendations of the judges and viewers around the globe.

She recently has triumphed over other contestants to win the Best Designer Bikini in the Preliminary Bikini Competition at the beauty pageant.

The competition was celebrated on July 29 in Hoi An town, the central province of Quang Nam. The contestants had to compete on a Victoria’s secret-inspired runway that was set above a swimming pool. They paraded their bikini bodies in two segments - creative designer swimsuits and in their bikini of choice.

Phan Thi Mo, 28, from Tien Giang Province, is 1.72 meters tall, weighs 46kg and measures 90-57-100.

She previously finished in the top 5 of the Miss Vietnam 2012 pageant. This is the first time Thi Mo has won the overall crown at a world pageant.

The first runner-up title goes to Miss Thailand. The second and third runners-up places are awarded to beauties from Bolivia and Mongolia, respectively.

Apart from the top prize for Phan Thi Mo, two other titles of World Tourism Queen and World Miss Couture are awarded to representatives from Hong Kong (China) and Chile.

World Miss Tourism Ambassador is not only a beauty pageant but also a tourism forum and cultural exchange event. Through the pageant’s activities, the contestants will promote and inspire audiences about tourism in their own nations and the host country./.
