Hoi An among world’s most romantic places

Hoi An ancient city in Vietnam’s central coastal province of Quang Nam has been selected by the US Cable News Network (CNN) as one of the world’s 13 most romantic places to visit.

The world cultural heritage site was ranked ninth on the list.

According to CNN, Hoi An “may have rocketed in popularity in recent years, but even increased visitor numbers can't detract from the undeniably quaint and romantic feel of this former trading port.”

The old town features ancient temples, houses and stores built around canals and pedestrian bridges that let visitors wander hand in hand, with hundreds of multicoloured lanterns swaying in coastal breezes, CNN said.

CNN recommends visitors enjoy famous foods including “banh mi” baguette sandwiches.
