Ha Noi rated 8th best destination

HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi ranked eighth in the Travellers' Choice Destinations announced earlier this week by TripAdvisor.

The world's largest travel site said: "The charming Vietnamese capital has aged well, preserving the Old Quarter, monuments, and colonial architecture, while making room for modern developments alongside.

"Lakes, parks, shady boulevards, and more than 600 temples and pagodas add to the appeal of this city, which is easily explored by taxi."

This year's top 25 list of global hot spots sees Asian destinations climbing in the rankings: Six of the top 25 are in Asia, with several Asian cities climbing 10 or more spots from last year.

Travelers' Choice Destinations honour top travel spots world-wide based on millions of reviews and opinions sent in by travellers.

They are determined using an algorithm that takes into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, attractions, and restaurants in destinations world-wide gathered over a 12-month period. — VNS
