Participants from 130 countries have begun to arrive in Bali.
During the first week of their stay, participants visited the temple Tanah Lot in Tabanan, and participated in the Sports Challenge in Nusa Dua.
The Tanah Lot trip was exciting experience for the ladies.
“I’m very happy. I have seen similar things in Thailand, but this is the first time I built a sea view,” Reigning Miss World 2012 Yu Wenxia said about her experience at a press conference last Saturday.
Tanah Lot temple is indeed beautiful, and it is one of the iconic cultural attractions of Bali. This Hindu temple is unique because it is built on a rocky island off the coast of Tabanan coast.
The morning after the opening ceremony, which was held on September 8, participants woke up early and took part in a turtle release program at Nusa Dua Beach.
Part of Miss World’s “fast track” programs, will be followed by the Sports Challenge: Beach Fashion, Talent Show, Top Model, Beauty with a purpose, and Multimedia. Winners of these programs will earn points to qualify as a semi-final.
For the group Sports Challenge on September 10, participants were divided into four groups and competed in volleyball, tug of war, a race Bakiak (Indonesian three-legged race) and a game in which each group competed to fill a perforated bucket with water from the sea.
The Yellow Team, consisting of participants from Italy, Bulgaria, Slovakia, the Netherlands and Nicaragua, dominated this event by winning three of four games.
