“I am delighted we are going to host the 2019 Miss World Final in Thailand. I know we are going to have the most amazing journey, as the ‘Land of Smiles’ is truly one of the most remarkable and welcoming countries in the world,” Morley said. “Spending time here it’s easy to see why Thailand gained its nickname, the people are so friendly, and everyone really does smile or ‘yim’ a lot.” Missosology.Org
