Halong Bay Listed Among the World’s Best Tourist Destinations in 2024

Halong Bay is the sole representative of Vietnam on the list of the 24 best tourist destinations worldwide for 2024. Recently, OvationNetwork, a luxury travel company based in the United States, unveiled a list of the 24 best travel destinations for the year 2024. The selection criteria encompass a fresh perspective, the perfect blend of natural beauty, outdoor activities, cuisine, and daily life experiences.

Zane Bohrer, Vice President and CEO of OvationNetwork, mentioned that travelers tend to seek destinations with profound connections, offering unparalleled experiences.

Halong Bay stands as Vietnam’s exclusive entry on the list, securing the 24th position out of 24. According to OvationNetwork, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the world’s most unique ecological and geological formations.

Andrew Lewis Harrison, an American travel advisor, noted that whether one is passionate about history, nature, cuisine, or adventure, Halong Bay can cater to diverse interests. He suggested travelers experience the bay on wooden boats and, for those concerned about crowds, explore nearby Bai Tu Long Bay to the north.

In 2023, Halong Bay also made CNN’s list of the 25 most beautiful destinations on the planet. Furthermore, during the 45th session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee on September 16, the Halong Bay-Cat Ba Archipelago in Quang Ninh Province and Hai Phong City was recognized as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.

Prior to this, Halong Bay in Quang Ninh Province had been twice recognized by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage Site in 1994 and 2000.

According to OvationNetwork’s announcement, Sardinia (Italy) is the top travel destination for 2024. In Asia, the company recommends Niseko (Japan), Jeju Island (South Korea), the Orkhon Valley (Mongolia), Goa (India), Tangalle (Sri Lanka), and Pokhara (Nepal).”
