When the global pandemic halted travel, that didn’t stop hotel brands and owners from constructing new buildings for accommodation. And as regulations were relaxed and the new normalcy was applied, the tourism industry quickly showed signs of recovery.
Long known as one of the most valuable destinations in Asia, Vietnam has been on the bucket lists of lots of tourists. In March 2022, when Vietnam reopened its borders to welcome international visitors, new hotels started to make their debuts in response to a new wave of travelers.
Recently, CNN has featured their list of top 8 hottest new hotels in Vietnam. They just opened, but these hotels do not disappoint with their outstanding customer service and excellent overall experience.
