Hoi An among top 10 most hospitable cities in the world

Booking.com's Traveler Review Awards 2022 names Hoi An as one of the top 10 most hospitable cities in the world, besides Matera of Italy and Bled of Slovenia. Hoi An ranks 10th.

 

Among the world's most hospitable place in 2022, Hoi An won the hearts of tourists with its charming old town recognized by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage site, its idyllic pace of life, romantic beaches... 

Chinese and French influences can be seen throughout the city, which all blends together seamlessly into the diverse local food scene, said the website. 

To get a real taste of Hoi An and authentic village life, travellers can take a guided cycling tour to visit local artisans and learn about their craft, from throwing pottery and making traditional reed mats to noodle making and wood carving. After a day of exploring, travellers can settle in hotels, homestays or resorts.

Recognised by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage in 1999, the town is a warren of ancient temples, houses, and shops built around a number of canals.

Hoi An has also maintained its position as one of the world’s 13 most romantic destinations, as selected by CNN.

Others in the list are Matera (Italy), Bled (Slovenia), Taitung (Taiwan - China), Nafplio and Toledo (Spain), Monte Verde (Brazil), Bruges (Belgium), Nusa Lembongan (Indonesia), and Ponta Delgada (Portugal). 

Below is a list of the 10 most hospitable destinations in the world, chosen based on more than 232 million reviews from travelers:
