The ancient town of Hoi An with its signature yellow walls and centuries-old houses was voted by global travelers the best place for photography in Vietnam.

It was followed by Sa Pa, surrounded by majestic mountains and rice terraces, and Hanoi, known for its bustling Old Quarter, according to a survey by online travel agency Booking.com.

Ha Long Bay with thousands of towering limestone pillars topped by rainforests came in fourth while Ho Chi Minh City, famed for its colonial French heritages, ranked fifth.

The top 10 included Da Lat, Ninh Binh, Da Nang, Mui Ne and Hue.

The survey was conducted among a sample of adults who had traveled for business or leisure in the past 12 months, and must be planning to travel in the next 12 months. In total, 20,934 respondents across 28 countries and territories, including 500 from Vietnam, were polled.

Hoi An, much loved for its peaceful atmosphere, has repeatedly featured in global tourism rankings.

A UNESCO heritage site and home to beautiful beaches like An Bang, it was named among the world's 25 most popular travel destinations in 2021 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards.
