Pattaya will host the 66th Miss World beauty pageant in November, bringing the oldest running international contest to Thailand for the first time.

Along with Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Earth, Miss World – founded in 1951 in the United Kingdom – is one of the Big Four international beauty pageants, the most coveted beauty titles when it comes to international pageant competitions.

Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome welcomed the Miss World delegation to Pattaya City Hall Jan. 19.

He said contestants from 130 countries would complete in the contest, the exact date for which has not been set.

Sonthaya said Pattaya was proud to serve as host and would show Thailand’s welcoming smile for all the world to see. (PCPR)
