Ho Chi Minh City has one of the world’s most impressive selections of coffee hotspots, according to travelers' endorsements of online travel agency Booking.com.

In celebration of International Coffee Day on October 1, Booking.com shared a list of the ten most favored destinations for coffee aficionados, where Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City ranks seventh.

“Ho Chi Minh City is home to upscale coffee shops and many more traditional spots where locals and tourists can sit on plastic stools that line the streets enjoying ‘ca phe sua da,' a ground dark roast Vietnamese-grown coffee often served over ice with condensed milk,” the Booking.com report wrote.

The online travel agency also revered Vietnam’s rich and varied coffee culture, with many areas coining their own delicacies including ‘ca phe trung,' or egg coffee.

The site recommends that international travelers join a Vietnamese coffee tour to experience and appreciate Vietnam's coffee culture like a local.

The ranking results, which were retrieved from endorsements for coffee left on Booking.com as part of post-stay reviews, named Napoli in Italy as the best coffee city in the world, followed by Ukraine’s Lviv and Italy’s Rome.

Despite having closed its borders to foreign tourists since March last year, Vietnam remains a popular destination for international travelers, emerging as the fourth most looked-up destination for trips in the latter half of 2020, according to tourism booking platform Agoda.com.

Ho Chi Minh City has also proved its attractiveness to domestic holidaymakers, leading the list of the most popular travel hotspots in Vietnam from June to August 2020, alongside Hanoi, Vung Tau, Da Nang, and Da Lat, according to a Booking.com survey.
