CEBU will host Miss Universe 2016 Prelim SWIMSUIT Competition

Cebu beaches are something that one shouldn't miss! To boost local beach tourism, Miss Universe 2016's Preliminary Swimsuit competition will be held in queen city of the south!

According to an article posted at Sunstar Cebu, Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Dino confirmed the development after he met with Department of Tourism (DOT) head Wanda Teo.
Both were in Tacloban last August 27  to attend the Eastern Visayas Tourism consultation forum.

Miss Universe 2016 main  event will still be in Manila. But aside from the capital city,  Cebu, Iloilo, Davao and Vigan will also host some preliminary  events  which will held between Jan. 13 and 18 next year, Dino said, quoting Teo.

If that schedule pushes through, the prestigious pageant will take place just days ahead of the Sinulog celebrations, Cebu’s peak tourist season.

In Miss Universe 1994 pageant in the Philippines, candidates also spent some time in Cebu islands during pageant week. A big difference this year is that the reigning Miss Universe, who will turn over her crown in 2017, is the third Filipina Miss U beauty Pia Wurtzbach.

Michael Dino said that the organizers are eyeing two beach resorts in Lapu-Lapu City where the competition can be held. But other places in Cebu with white sand beaches are also being considered.

The 2016 Miss Universe pageant will be held on January 30, 2017 in Manila, Philippines.
