Mr. Nawat, President of the Miss Grand International contest, also shared his impression of the show. “I think it’s very difficult to choreograph actors. I heard there were more than 200 artists performing in the show, and they did it nicely. If you plan to visit Hanoi, at least come and enjoy the show once in your life. Once again, it is a wonderful show,” said Mr. Nawat.

Miss Grand International 2023 contestants will also participate in activities to promote Vietnamese culture and tourism in Da Nang, Hue, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh City.
