With the theme of “A Decade of Beauty,” the final night of Miss Vietnam 2020 brought about youthful and modern performances alongside traditional cultural beauties, inspired by the nation’s intangible cultural heritages that have been recognised by UNESCO.

At the final, 35 contestants competed in four traditional performances in ao dai (Vietnamese traditional costume), swimsuits, evening gowns and a Q&A round.
