Hoi An is the Best City in the World in 2019
“The food in Hoi An was the best in Vietnam,” said one reader. “Amazing vegetarian and vegan options and Hoi An–exclusive dishes such as white rose.” This year, the title of Best City in the World belongs to Hoi An, Vietnam.
At Travel + Leisure, we know our readers have traveled the world near and far, discovering what cities are truly worth experiencing on every continent. That’s why, each year, we task them with helping us figure out something that’s difficult to determine: What’s the best city in the world to visit right now?
For our 2019 World’s Best Awards survey, T+L asked readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. And the results are in. This year, the title of Best City in the World belongs to Hoi An, Vietnam.
Hoi An Is the Best City in the World — and the Street Food Is Only the Beginning
This charmer of a city leaped from its No. 8 position last year to the top of our list. What draws readers to what one called “a little gem of a place”? For some, it’s the shopping: “You can have anything made to order.” For others, it’s the food. “The best in Vietnam, with amazing vegetarian and vegan options,” wrote one fan. It doesn’t hurt that Hoi An is so accessible either. “It’s great that the inner part of the city is restricted and cars aren’t allowed, so one can walk down the center of the street to the shops and markets,” explained one reader. “The city has a nice atmosphere, being right on a river.”
The Four Seasons Nam Hai - a beautiful resort
When it comes to places to stay, there are plenty of options: resorts, hotels, hostels, and guest houses. The true stand-out in the area is the Four Seasons Nam Hai, a beautiful resort with one of the best spas in Asia. Located on the beach, the Nam Hai is just a short taxi or motorbike ride into the heart and energy of Hoi An. Opt for a pool villa where the bed is on an elevated platform next to a built in bathtub.
