The 20-year-old from Nam Dinh Province was chosen after Ngo Phuong Lan, who won Miss Viet Nam Global 2007, decided not to enter Miss World as it would interfere with her studies.
Teresa Sam, the first runner-up, was ruled out as she is a British subject and cannot speak fluent Vietnamese.
Minh Thu, who studies English at the Hanoi Open University, was crowned this year’s Miss Vietnam Sea. She stands 1.67 meters tall and weighs 50 kilograms.
Ms. Nguyen Thuy Nga, the CEO of modeling agency Elite Vietnam, said she and her staff were rushing to complete the formalities and get everything ready for Minh Thu’s trip.
The final of Miss World 2007 will be held on December 1 in Sanya, a city in the southern province of Hainan.
