Hoi An was placed at the 13th position with total scores of 86.98. The ancient city is a heaven for photography and cuisine lovers.

In 1999, the small city was recognised by the UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage site. It has been honoured by Travel+Leisure many times in its list of world top cities in 2019, 10 best cities in Asia in 2018, and 50 best cities to visit in 2019.

Referring to Hoi An, visitors immediately think of lanterns, the old town and the Covered Bridge - a symbol that cannot be more distinctive.

This year's World's Best Awards survey was open for voting January 11 through May 10, 2021, as destinations around the world were gradually lifting COVID-19 restrictions. The cities’ rating is based on travellers’ assessment on sights and landmarks, culture, cuisine, friendliness, shopping, and overall value./.
