HA NOI — Ha Noi has topped the list of cheapest global tourist destinations in the summer of 2012, according to the Trip Index recently announced by the world's largest travel website ‘TripAdvisor'.
The rating is based on the average cost of one night's accommodation for two at a four-star hotel, including dinner and return taxi fares over a 3.2 kilometre route.
The other cities from Asia are Beijing, which came in second, closely followed by Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.
Cities in Europe have once again come out as the most expensive destinations.
The most expensive is London, followed by Oslo in Norway, Zurich in Switzerland, Paris in France and Stockholm in Sweden. The results were from a survey of US cities, which received the largest number of international visitors during the period from June 1 to August 31.-VNS
