Hoan Kiem Lake- one of the most attractive destinations in Ha Noi

According to the list, Ha Noi ranked second, with many voters praising the charming streets found throughout the capital’s Old Quarter, along with the rapid pace of modern developments.

"The charming Vietnamese capital has aged well, preserving the Old Quarter, monuments and colonial architecture, while making room for modern developments alongside," TripAdvisor said.

"Ha Noi may have shrugged off several former names, including Thang Long but it hasn't forgotten its past, as sites such as Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum and Hoa Lo Prison attest. Lakes, parks, shady boulevards and more than 600 temples and pagodas add to the appeal of this city, which is easily explored by taxi."

Completing the top 10 list is Bangkok of Thailand, Siem Reap of Cambodia, Phuket of Thailand, New Delhi of India, Jaipur of India, Kathmandu of Nepal, and Beijing of China./.
