THREE Vietnamese cities are among the world’s top 100 travel destinations for international tourists, global business intelligence firm Euromonitor International said in its latest report.

Based on Euromonitor’s Top City Destinations Ranking report presented early this month at the World Travel Market event in London, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Ha Long are the three most-visited cities by international tourists arriving in Vietnam.

Ho Chi Minh City was ranked 36th while capital Ha Noi and Ha Long claimed the 52nd and 56th spots, respectively.

Euromonitor projected that Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s largest city, would attract 5.5 foreign visitors this year while Hanoi and Ha Long were seen to welcome 4.3 million and 4 million international tourists, respectively.
