Vietnam has been named the world’s leading heritage destination for a second time in a row at the 2020 World Travel Awards held in Russia on Sunday.

The results were based on votes cast by travel industry professionals and the public.

The recognition of Vietnam as the world’s leading heritage destination testifies to the country’s efforts to preserve its cultural heritage, the WTA said.

Vietnam is home to eight world heritage sites recognized by UNESCO: the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, My Son Sanctuary, Hoi An ancient town, Complex of Hue Monuments, Ha Long Bay, Trang An Landscape Complex, Thang Long Imperial Citadel, and Ho Dynasty Citadel.

These and other destinations have repeatedly won acclaim from prestigious travel magazines in recent years.

The WTA has been called the “travel industry’s equivalent of the Oscars” by The Wall Street Journal.

At the 2020 World Travel Awards, Asia, last month Vietnam was named Asia’s leading destination in the culinary, culture and heritage categories.
