Ms. Diem, 21, is a student of the HCM City-based Foreign Trade University and speaks English fluently.

She played a minor part in the film “Ambition” and now anchors the weather forecast on HCM City Television.

Designer Vo Viet Chung has come up with a special ao dai (the traditional Vietnamese outfit) for Ms. Diem to wear on stage. She will also don evening dresses designed by Hoang Hai.

This is for the sixth time that Vietnam is sending a contestant to this pageant. In 2003 Vu Huong Giang won the Most Talented and Congeniality awards.

To quote the official blurb, Miss International Tourism pageant is not only a search for and presentation of the most beautiful young women, but it also seeks representatives to have a great influence in promoting tourism and introduce her homeland to the world.
