Nha Trang withdraws as host of Miss World 2010

After the Miss World flag was handled to Vietnam during the 59th Miss World finals in South Africa, the province of Khanh Hoa and the city of Nha Trang withdrew from hosting the 60th edition of Miss World. Earlier in January, US-based RAAS group, license holders of Miss World in Vietnam retired their sponsorship for the pageant after a long dispute of which city, Nha Trang or My Tho, would host the final event. The government of Khanh Hoa could not secure the $10 million US dollars needed to stage the event and rather will focus on hosting a much lesser known international pageant. There is no news on where Miss World 2010 Festival will be celebrated as of today.
