Cebu, Philippines – Miss Universe candidates goes to Cebu for a close-in encounter with whale sharks.

Half of the candidates that went to Cebu remained in the city for photoshoots, while the other half comprising of Miss Philippines, Miss Vietnam, Miss China, Miss New Zealand, and Miss Thailand went to Oslo. For most of them, it was their first time to go on a helicopter ride so they were very happy with the experience.

But before the beauties can try this world-renowned adventure, they need to go on a briefing to know the proper way of swimming with these gigantic mamals. According to the girls,

“This is a once in a lifetime experience that we will never forget”

Although the Oslo adventure isn’t yet a part of the Miss Universe itinerary, according to Tourism Undersecretary Kat Kat de Castro, in January the Miss Universe candidates will return to Cebu which will be the venue for the swimsuit competition.
