According to the website, from an exceptional culinary journey at the nation’s various Michelin star restaurants to the hidden hole-in-the-wall joints of Japan, travelers can embark on a mouthwatering adventure that is sure to leave their taste buds dancing with delight.

Booking.com stressed that Hanoi boasts Michelin Star restaurants Gia, Hibana by Koki, and Tam Vi.

At Gia, chef Sam Tran creates a rotating, seasonal contemporary Vietnamese menu, whilst Hibana by Koki serves Japanese cuisine at an intimate 14-seat counter which has ingredients flown in twice a week from Japan, while Tam Vi focuses on northern Vietnamese dishes such as ham with snails and crab soup with Malabar spinach.

“These eateries which were awarded the prestigious Michelin star in June 2023 serve beautifully crafted dishes and exceptional culinary experiences that are worth stopping by on a trip to Vietnam,” the website noted.

It also recommended that holiday goers enjoy a stay at Capella Hanoi which is located close to the famous Hoan Kiem lake and Hanoi’s Old Quarter. Indeed, guests can visit several popular tourist attractions near their accommodation such as Hanoi Opera House, Trang Tien Plaza, and Thang Long Water Puppet Theater.

Rounding off the list is Seoul of the Republic of Korea, Tokyo of Japan, Singapore, and finally Kaohsiung of Taiwan (China).
