24th Miss Asia International in Hong Kong

The 24th Miss Asia International pageant held its final competition on Sunday in Hong Kong.

Xu Ying from the Chinese mainland was crowned Miss Asia 2009, while Wang His-yao, from Hong Kong/Macau, was first runner-up and Hsu Chia-huei from Taiwan second runner-up.

Organized by one of Hong Kong's leading broadcast companies, Asia Television Limited, the beauty competition has been held annually since 1985, except for a brief halt from 2000 to 2003.

After it was re-launched in 2004, the event started to admit contestants from Asian areas other than Hong Kong.
