VTV.vn - Vietnam received a number of awards across multiple categories at the 2019 World Travel Awards, which took place on Saturday. These awards are known as the Oscars of global tourism.

Vietnam has won in four categories at the World Tourism Awards 2019, including “Top Destinations in Asia 2019”, “Top Gastronomic Destinations in Asia 2019”, and “Top Cultural Destinations in Asia 2019”, while Hoi An ancient town won the title of “Asia’s Leading Cultural City Destination 2019”.

The 26th World Travel Awards (WTA) 2019 - Asia and Oceania Gala Ceremony 2019 was held at Vinpearl Convention Center Phu Quoc on Phu Quoc Island on October 12.

The World Travel Awards, the biggest event of the tourism sector, has been held annually since 1993. The Awards, sometimes described as the Oscars of world tourism, draws hundreds of travel companies to honor outstanding achievements in Aviation, Hotels, Resorts, Travel Companies, and Tourist Destinations.

Each year, the WTA stages a series of regional galas to recognise and celebrate individual and collective success in each geographic region.

This year Vinpearl Phu Quoc, a top Vietnamese resort and entertainment center, was elected to host the WTA Asia and Oceania Gala. The pristine island of Phu Quoc is a hidden lush paradise off the southern coast of Vietnam, surrounded by the warm turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand.
