The destinations won TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Best of The Best 2023 Awards.

According to TripAdvisor, ASEAN Tourism industry is very proud that the 6 ASEAN destinations have won the honor from the famous travel website.  In addition to the two destinations of Vietnam, this list also includes Siem Riep (Cambodia), Chiang Mai (Thailand), Panay Islands (the Philippines) and Lombok (Indonesia).

The website noted that the UNESCO-recognised World Heritage Site of Hoi An is a historic city that was a popular trading port from the 15th to 19th centuries in central Vietnam.

The city is notable for its many man-made marvels. On every 14th day of the month the city turns off its electric lights and illuminates the night with lit paper lanterns.

“With so many things to do and try in Hoi An, it is no wonder that this quaint seaside town earned the number two spot on the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Best of the Best 2023,” it shared.

Meanwhile, Ho Chi Minh City is well known for its historic French colonial architecture. The southern metropolis is also famous for its many attractions, including the Jade Emperor Pagoda, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Binh Tay Market, and the Mariamman Hindu Temple.

Earlier, both cities had been also ranked among the world's 25 trending destinations by the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice./.
