According to TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards, riding through downtown Hanoi came in at 15th among regional experiences that travelers should not miss out on during a visit to the capital of Vietnam.

“Seeing landmarks such as Hai Ba Trung Temple, the Presidential Palace Historical Site, and Long Bien Bridge; sample some of the city’s finest street eats; and soak up the atmosphere in country villages,” readers of TripAdvisor wrote about visiting the capital city by motorbike.

Furthermore, taking an Eco Cooking Class in Hoi An followed by a trip to local markets, as well as basket boat and crab fishing, was voted among the best experiences in Asia, coming in at 20th position. 

Hoi An Eco Cooking Class is a fun and interesting way in which to experience rural life in the ancient town. Visitors can be guided by a local tour guide in dealing with local traders in the market in order to select and buy high-quality ingredients for the cooking class, TripAdvisor readers shared.

The tour continues from the market directly on to bamboo basket boats on the canals of the Bay Mau Nipa forest, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the nipa palm forest and enjoying crabs fishing. The final activity is to participate in cooking for around two hours with the restaurant’s chef, the website quoted.

Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards is an annual award which is voted on by millions of travelers from around the world.

The prizes are then broken down into various categories, such as the best outdoor activities, exclusive experiences, and best food destinations.
