Phong Nha, Hoi An, Ninh Binh - Top 3 Most Welcoming Places in Vietnam
In January, Booking.com - the world's leading digital-based travel service providing company - announced the results of the Traveller Review Awards 2021 based on millions of user reviews aiming to honor good-quality resort places that are appreciated by visitors. Phong Nha, Hoi An and Ninh Binh have excelled in the award’s Top 3 most welcoming places in Vietnam.
Ninh Binh's poetic landscape a source of inspiration for many travelers near and far
Phong Nha - home of Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO - is like an underground palace with a wild natural landscape, the world's largest cave and Asia's oldest limestone mountain. Meanwhile, Hoi An captivates visitors with the ancient and tranquil beauty of red-tiled houses covered with moss, time-stained yellow walls, colorful lantern streets, and delicately-carved horizontal lacquered board. In contrast, with the fanciful riverside landscape and limestone mountains emerging from green fields, Ninh Binh with the Tam Coc - Bich Dong complex is dubbed "Ha Long Bay on land" captivating visitors right from the first sight.
According to Mr. Anthony, Vietnam Regional Director of Booking.com, the honor of the units in this year's Traveller Review Awards is a testament to their dedication, persistence and resilience, thereby providing wonderful travel experiences for travelers from all over the world during a challenging and difficult year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Tripadvisor readers have voted two experiences in Vietnam among the Top 25 best travel experiences in the world including a Hue – Hoi An motorbike tour and a private Ho Chi Minh street food tour.
An Australian travel magazine called Traveller has recently ranked Hoi An second among Top 10 most charming destinations in the world without cars and motorbikes.
Along with Bali in Indonesia ranked 4, Hoi An is one of the only 2 destinations in Southeast Asia among 10 world’s cheapest tourist destinations at the 8th rank.
