TripAdvisor website says about Hanoi “The charming Vietnamese capital has aged well, preserving its Old Quarter, historic monuments and colonial architecture, while making room for modern development. Lakes, parks, shady boulevards and more than 600 temples and pagodas add to the appeal of this city,”
The travel site also describes HCM City as Vietnam's largest, bustling largest hub which sets the cultural and economic pace of the country.
Hoi An on the central Vietnamese coast is a outstanding example of an important Southeast Asian trading port from the 15th-19th centuries, and Ha Long is famous for its stunning limestone islands, rock formations and caves.  
The awards are given in two categories: Top 25 Travellers’ Choice World Destinations and Top 25 Travellers’ Choice Asia Destinations. The Travellers' Choice Destinations awards recognize the top travel spots worldwide based on millions of reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers. Award winners were determined based on the popularity of the destinations, taking into account travellers' favourites and most highly rated locations.
The awards ceremony will be held in Singapore on June 18.
