“A metropolis of boundless energy, Ho Chi Minh City draws together old and new Vietnam, representing the city’s past as well as its future. Wander through alleys and markets, explore the temples, and discover the designer malls beneath soaring skyscrapers in this fascinating fusion of different worlds,” World Travel Awards wrote on its homepage.

This year, Vietnam received a series of nominations for different categories in the Asian region. Ho Chi Minh City targets 3.5 million foreign arrivals this year as Vietnam reopened its borders after two years.
