It is rare for any other province/city to have such a large number of beauty contests which are not only at national scale but also international scale as this province. According to Ms. Paula Shugart - President of the Miss Universe Organization, when deciding to choose Nha Trang as the venue for the Miss Universe 2008 Contest, representatives of this organization had thoroughly studied the necessary conditions with the strictest requirements. "When we received information that Nha Trang was fully qualified to host the contest, we all were very happy. Nha Trang is a beautiful coastal city with very good facilities. Citizens and local authorities are very much in favor of supporting the organizing unit. Therefore, we are considering planning to bring the contest back to Nha Trang," shared Ms. Paula Shugart.

According to Mr. Tran Ngoc Nhat – Head of Organization Board of Miss Universe Vietnam 2017, this is the third time this contest has been held in Nha Trang. Each time the contest takes place, the organizers receive the attention and support from the local authorities. The enthroned beauties of the contests have actively worked for the community in their term. Especially, they have spent much time for introducing about the land and peopleof Nha Trang Khanh Hoa to domestic and foreign friends. It can be seen that the brand of Miss Universe Vietnam Contest has gradually closely linked to the location of Nha Trang.

 Every time the beauty contest takes place in Nha Trang, the the image of the coastal city is introduced, advertised more widely in the country and around the world. This is essential for a sea tourism city. Because these events have not only attracted the attention of the public at the time of the event, but also influenced during the later period. Besides, with the coronation ceremony held in Nha Trang, in their activities, the beauty will pay attention to promote the image of Nha Trang. This is also a form that attracts a lot of public interest. "After my coronation in Nha Trang, during my term, when going to any place in the world, I would like to introduce about the people, the beauty of Nha Trang, as well as my impression to everybody. After 10 years back to Nha Trang, I saw the stronger development of the city and I also have more beautiful memories here" shared Miss Universe 2008 - Dayana Mendoza.


Recently, in the meeting with representatives of the Organization Board of Miss Universe, Organization Board of Miss Universe Vietnam, Mr. Nguyen Dac Tai, Vice Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee, said that the contest was held in Nha Trang over 10 years ago. The image of Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa has been better known through the contest. Nha Trang is ready if this contest comes back.
