The Vietnamese city of Hoi An has been named the best in the world at the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards. Jumping up from 8th place in last year’s annual readers survey, it knocks Mexican San Miguel de Allende off the top spot, which is has held for the last two years (and now sits second). Readers rated cities on their sights and landmarks, culture, cuisine, friendliness, shopping, and overall value. One person called Hoi An a ‘little gem of a place’, while another praised its vegan and vegetarian options. For some, it was the shopping that really shone, with a reader saying ‘you can have anything made to order’. Others praised the infrastructure, crediting the chilled atmosphere to the fact the city’s located right beside a river, and the Old Town area is completely pedestrianised. Hoi An is considered one of the safest cities in Asia, and the night markets are renowned for their street food and fresh produce.
