On the morning of November 5th, Miss Teen  2010’s Top 20 finalists paid a visit to the Temple of Literature (aka the Confucius Temple), one of Hanoi’s finest historical sites. Although several others can be found throughout the country, the most prominent and famous one is  located in Hanoi where it also served as Vietnam’s first university.

As an important landmark known to represent both academia and beauty, the temple also acts as a cultural icon for the competition by encouraging contestants to reflect similar qualities.

Here are some photos from one of their last few outings before  the finals on November 15.

Oh look, a wall!

No look, a bird!
