HÀ NỘI — In its list of 17 best destinations for 2017, the UK edition of Esquire recommends going to Việt Nam for its optimism and street food.
Việt Nam continues to emerge as a new global travel destination. But unlike other travel lists which focus on just beautiful beaches and fancy hotels, this time Việt Nam is strongly recommended for its state of mind.
"Việt Nam is undergoing a period of peace, innovation, creativity and success – and the expressions of optimism are noticeable and a delight to witness," the magazine said.
Visitors are encouraged to take time and slow down to really appreciate the country’s stunning culture.
Highlighting popular destinations Hà Nội, HCM City, Da Nang and Hoi An, the magazine tells visitors to truly enjoy the Vietnamese experience by taking boat rides in the Mekong Delta and cooking and Vietnamese language classes and visiting hill tribe villages.
Esquire’s list also includes three other destinations in Asia – India’s Golden Triangle, Japan, and Sanya in China. — VNS
