The 69th Miss World finals will be held on December 7 in Thailand, marking the first time that the pageant will take place in the Land of Smiles.
Delegates from 130 countries are scheduled to arrive in Thailand on November 9 for the month-long festival. The opening ceremony will be held in Bangkok.
Each contestant will then compete in a series of fast track events that will take them on a journey across some of the country’s popular tourism sites taking in its rich cultural heritage.
“Each year we bring together nations from around the world with a shared sense of purpose. We work with incredible women, which is why I am excited to be in Thailand this year and work with the Thai people to make a difference. We have a spectacular show planned with our partners and will be revealing more details about the month-long festival,” Miss World chair Julia Morley said in a statement.
