WHAT happens when beauty meets prestige? Malaysia is set to be on the world map of beauty pageants when 30 beautiful contestants of Miss CosmoWorld 2023 meet and stay at the prestigious Malaysia’s first Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur Bukit Jalil.

With the opening of international borders, beauty pageants are back and play an important role in boosting the tourism industry as well as celebrating and empowering women.
