Besides Hoi An, other famous cities, including Udaipur (India), Upud (Indonesia), Kyoto (Japan), are also on the list.
This list has been based on opinions and votes of travellers from all over the world.
In addition to the architectural structures, Hoi An still holds a rich and diverse intangible culture. The daily lives of the local people with their long-time practices and customs, beliefs, folk arts and cultural festivals have still been well preserved and developed in Hoi An.
The ancient town is considered a living museum of the old-time architecture and urban lifestyle of Vietnam.
