Hanoi (VNA) – The Bai Dam Trau beach in Con Dao
island in Vietnam’s southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, has been listed among
the 25 most beautiful beaches in the world, according to a recent article
published by Travel Leisure magazine.

“Trying to select
Vietnam’s most beautiful beach is tough, but Bai Dam Trau in the Con Dao
islands is certainly a top contender,” the article says.

“With distinct golden sand, soft swells, and
shady groves of bamboo and evergreen trees, it’s the kind of place to spend the
day gently swinging in a hammock with a beach read and walking in the surf with
a freshly hacked coconut,” the article adds.

Topping the
list is Saud Beach on Luzon island in the Philippines, followed by Elafonissi
Beach in Greece and Nungwi Beach in Tanzania.

Along with the
Vietnamese beach, the list also sees two other representatives from the Asian
region, including Railay West in Thailand and Radhanagar in India. 

Last year, Travel
Leisure magazine placed Vietnamese hotel The Reverie Saigon in the southern hub
Ho Chi Minh City at 57th position among the 100 best hotels globally.

In 2019, the ancient city
of Hoi An in the central province of Quang Nam made it into the magazine’s list
of 15 most beautiful cities across the world./.
