A new survey published by Booking.com on August 19 on the occasion of World Photography Day showed that international visitors who love photography favoured Hoi An with its ancient yellow-painted houses; Sapa with its terraced paddy fields across the mountainside alongside poetic waterfalls and streams; and Hanoi with its busy Old Quarter’s streets.

This result was based on the sharings on the most favoured destinations for “photo hunting” journeys of 20,934 tourists from 28 countries and territories.

The voters had travelled for work or tourism in the past 12 months and have travel plans for the next 12 months.

In addition to the above destinations, international tourists also listed Ha Long, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Lat, Ninh Binh, Da Nang, Mui Ne and Hue among the top ten favourite destinations for photography in Vietnam.

The poetic scenery of Vietnam has been captivating many tourists from all over the world as they pursue their passion for photography at the many beautiful tourist attractions and UNESCO-recognised heritages.

As with foreign visitors, domestic tourists also assessed Hoi An and Sapa as the leading destinations for photography in Vietnam, followed by Da Lat, Ha Long, Ninh Binh, Da Nang, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hue and Tam Dao.
