Hoi An among world’s best cities with beaches

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) of Hong Kong (China) has placed Hoi An Ancient Town in fifth position in a list of the nine best city destinations with beaches around the globe.

The SCMP suggested Hoi An as a destination for visitors who want to mix shopping, sightseeing, and sunbathing. The article also mentioned other beautiful places around the world, including Mumbai (India), Brighton (the UK), Barcelona (Spain), Sydney (Australia), Miami (the US), Sanya (China), and Athens (Greece).

Any corner of Hoi An can become a poetic picture.

Commenting on Hoi An, SCMP wrote that it is a photogenic city on Viet Nam's central coast. An architectural medley of wooden Chinese shophouses, French colonial buildings, ornate temples, and the Japanese Covered Bridge helped the Old Town gain UNESCO World Heritage status in 1999.

Formerly one of the busiest trading ports in Southeast Asia, the Hoi An of today bustles with sightseeing tourists and features clothing tailored for a fraction of the price they would pay at home. At night, lanterns illuminate the Old Town, creating a fairy-tale feel (lantern-making workshops are also a hit with visitors).

"Rather than staying in the center of the city, many travelers opt for a beachside base. An Bang's white sands and sparkling blue waters have featured in CNN's list of 100 Best Beaches in the World and are only 3 kilometers from the Old Town. Hire a bike and pedal between the two", the newspaper recommended.

Hoi An has long been a favorite destination for domestic and international tourists. News agencies, international travel magazines based on the votes of readers and tourists always rank Hoi An in the list of famous destinations.

Last July, Hoi An was named in the list of favourite cities in Asia in the World’s Best Awards 2023 voted by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine. Previously, Hoi An was also honoured by Travel + Leisure many times as the most wonderful city in the world in 2019, the leading city in Asia in 2020, the top 10 Asian cities in 2018 and in 2021, or one of the 50 best places to travel in 2019.
