According to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, the Australian newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald published an article on the importance of sustainable tourism, presenting a list of 20 experiences with positive impact on the environment, ecology, and livelihoods of local residents. Among them, trekking tours through the UNESCO-recognised Non Nuoc Cao Bang Geopark in Vietnam’s northern province of Cao Bang made it to the list.

Previously, the Readers’ Choice Awards 2024 for the Asia-Pacific region by DestinAsian magazine named Phu Quoc at 6th place among the top 10 islands in the region. The destinations were voted based on expert and tourist evaluations, considering criteria such as appeal, experiences, local friendliness, cuisine, transport, infrastructure, convenient flight connections, and prices.

The 2024 Travelers' Choice Awards – Best of the Best Destinations by TripAdvisor honoured Ha Long Bay (3rd place) and Sapa (5th) on its list of the top 25 destinations worldwide.

Meanwhile, the Yahoo! Finance website named Hue in the central province of Thua Thien Hue as one of the top 20 most underrated travel destinations throughout Asia.

Not only places, but some Vietnamese dishes have also been mentioned by the international media. Among them, Banh Mi (bread) topped the Top 100 sandwiches in the world) announced by the culinary website TasteAtlas last month.
