The information was released by the contest management board at a press conference in Hanoi on April 17.
The board said Quang Binh, home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, is the venue for the final of the national costume contest, while Phu Quoc, a resort island, will host the swimsuit and preliminary competitions.
The MGI 2017 is expected to draw 80 contestants from across the world, with Nguyen Tran Huyen My, runner-up of Miss Vietnam 2014, representing Vietnam.
During the contest, participants will visit war-affected children and join other charity activities.
