Vietnam has been ranked third among the top 10 destinations for Bucket List holidays, according to a list released by TripAdvisor, a US travel and restaurant website company. 

According to TripAdvisor, Vietnam deserves to be ranked third among the 10 best destinations for Bucket List holidays as the Southeast Asian country is known for its bustling cities, delicious food and beautiful coastline.

TripAdvisor advises travelers spend a half-day for Hanoi food tour, or enjoy a full-day Mekong Delta bike tour from Ho Chi Minh City, and evening Hoi An food tour by bike.

Costa Rica tops the lists, followed by New Zealand, Vietnam, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Portugal, Mexico, the US, Iceland.

Earlier, Vietnam has been ranked fourth among the most remarkable travel destinations where your dollar goes far, according to a list released by Men’s Journal, a US men’s lifestyle magazine.

Men’s Journal has some words of advice for travelers that a week in any Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City luxe hotel will cost you the same a night in any western capital.

And those are the costlier parts, you can cruise along on your motorbike rentals or visit the stunning rice paddies for next to pennies, in addition to eating some of the best, most flavorful food in the world. A night in a five-star Ha Long Bay hotel is less than US$100, as is a stay on the white-sand, palm-dotted island of Phu Quoc.

The number of foreign tourists to Vietnam in the first seven months of 2018 is estimated at 9.08 million, a year-on-year rise of 25.4%, the General Statistics Office (GSO) has announced.

In 2018, Vietnam aims to serve 16 million foreign tourists and 80 million domestic tourists, according to General Director of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) Nguyen Van Tuan.
