Hoian, Hanoi named best Asian destinations

2010-09-09 (GMT + 7)

Hoi An and Hanoi were listed as two of the best holiday destinations in Asia in a recent poll carried out by online travel magazine Smart Travel Asia.

The historic town of Hoian remained in the fifth spot in the top ten holiday destinations  in Asia while Hanoi entered the list for the first time in seventh position. Kerala in India topped the list, moving up from third last year.
The annual Best in Travel poll that ran from May to July also listed the best hotels, resorts, spas, airlines and airports in Asia.
The Nam Hai in Hoian was ranked second in the top 25 leisure hotels and resorts in Asia. Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, Sofitel Da Lat Palace and Princess d’Annam Resort and Spa were also featured in the list.
The Park Hyatt Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City and the Sofitel Legend Metropole and the Sheraton in Hanoi were also voted amongst the best hotels for businesspeople and conferences.
According to Vietnam’s National Administration of Tourism, being listed in the top ten destinations in Asia is an excellent opportunity to entice more international visitors travel to Vietnam, Hanoi, especially on the city’s millennial birthday.

The annual poll, which is held every May to July, selects the best resort city, the best city to shop, the best city for business, and the best hotel, restaurant and airline.
Smart Travel Asia has over one million readers worldwide who are frequent travelers. The Best in Travel poll, now in its sixth year, allows readers to vote for their favorites among thousands of options in Asia.
