Travelers’ choice – Ha Noi 8th best world destination
Update: Jan 12, 2015
TripAdvisor has sliced and diced its users' reviews and ratings for calendar year 2014 into lists of its most highly recommended global destinations and recently announced its winning destinations.

According to the world’s premiere travel website – “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.”

The Travelers’ Choice Awards honour top travel destinations world-wide based on thousands of reviews and opinions submitted 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 gathered for the year.

“Last year, Ha Noi welcomed 18,400 million visitors, including 3 million international tourists” said To Van Dong, director of the Ha Noi Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
