The girls came prepared and ready to conquer the other side of the world to be the face of World Miss Tourism Ambassador.

The press presentation last night started with an extravagant fashion show that showcased the creative designs of Dak Bonite, Mark Dela Pena and Russel Yasay. As part of the preliminary activities, the catwalk presentation is included in the prejudging event.
After the fashion show, the girls quickly changed for their swimwear, designed by Sonny boy Mindo. During this portion, the ladies introduced themselves with full delight of the audience. After that, the floor was open for the Q & A (Question and Answer) where the girls where given the chance to express themselves on a particular topic and answered questions related to tourism, the main theme of the pageant. What made this portion so engaging was the fact that each girl tried to support each other. When a candidate cannot comprehend the English language fluently, other girls were willing to help as the interpreter. And it was just a wonderful experiencing watching the candidates bonding and sharing moments together.
After the Q & A, the Top 15 in Best in Swimwear was chosen and the Darling of the Press award.
