VietNamNet Bridge – Duong Truong Thien Ly arrived at the OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa on Sunday morning, one of the latest contestants coming to this country for the Miss World Pageant.

Wearing a blue ao dai and palm-leaf conical hat, Thien Ly attracted the eyes of many passengers at the airport. She looked very cheerful after an 11-hour flight.

The appearance of Thien Ly and some other contestants warmed up the OR Tambo Airport. Contestants were warmly welcomed by the organizing board and brought to Sandton Sun Hotel in the centre of Johannesburg, one of the best hotels in South Africa.

The Vietnamese contestant shares a room with Miss Thailand.

Thien Ly brought four suitcases of costumes, designed by Cong Tri and Sy Hoang, to South Africa.

Last night contestants met with the Chairwoman of Miss World Organization, Julia Morley. Today they will be shot for an introduction video clip, practice at Convention Center and attend a night party.
