    Hanoi ranked #1 in the top 10 most affordable destinations in Asia, following by two of Vietnam’s most popular tourist stops.

    According to the 2020 Backpacker Index compiled by Alpha Travel Insurance, backpackers need only $18.3 in the capital of Vietnam.

    The index ranked major cities in the region based on the minimum budget travelers would need for a day to cover accommodation, transport, meals, drinks and attractions.

    Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s southern metropolis, came third, with daily expenses estimated at $19.48 while ancient town Hoi An in central Quang Nam Province ranked sixth at $21.22.

    Others on the list were Thailand’s Chiangmai ($21.4), India’s New Delhi ($22.2), Cambodia’s Phnom Penh ($22.23) and Sri Lanka’s Colombo ($23.13).

    Foreigners have favored HCMC and Hanoi for years. The two cities were among the 100 most visited global destinations in the annual Top City Destinations Ranking released by global business intelligence firm Euromonitor International.

    Hoi An, a UNESCO Heritage Site, is much loved for its slow pace of life and tranquil atmosphere. The ancient town has earned one laurel after another this year including topping last year’s tourism hotspot listing by New York-based magazine Travel + Leisure.

    On July 16 last year, Google Doodle featured an image of Hoi An with symbols of Chua Cau (Pagoda Bridge) and colorful lanterns, the first Vietnamese destination to be honored thus.
