Hanoi Takes the Crown as the Best Food Destination Worldwide in 2024
Hanoi proudly claims to be ranked first in the Best Food Destination globally, securing the top spot among the ’20 Best Food Destinations in the World 2024.’ From the iconic ‘pho’ (noodle soup) to the flavorsome bun cha (grilled pork with vermicelli), Hanoi’s culinary offerings showcase a rich tapestry of renowned dishes, including banh cuon (rolled rice pancakes), banh mi (Vietnamese baguettes), and ca phe trung (egg coffee).
Hanoi is Ranked 4th in the Top Destinations in the World 2024
Ranked 4th in the global standings of TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2024, Hanoi’s allure extends beyond its culinary delights. Described as a charming city that gracefully melds its aged Old Quarter, monuments, and colonial architecture with modern developments, Hanoi retains its deep historical connections. Formerly known as Thang Long, or ‘ascending dragon,’ the city’s landmarks, such as Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and Hoa Lo Prison, bear witness to its rich past. Hanoi’s accessibility, with lakes, parks, shaded boulevards, and over 600 temples and pagodas, adds to its allure.
The Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best is an annual award by TripAdvisor. It is meant to be given to destinations whose hotels, restaurants, and activities have received a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the community over a 12-month period. Hanoi’s dual recognition underscores its commitment to providing an outstanding and memorable travel experience for visitors globally.
