Two of the most notable destinations to make the list are Vietnam and the Philippines, with both nations receivinga detailed overview by writer Karen I. Chen.
With Vietnam continued suspension of international flights and halting of entry for all foreigners as a measure to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, the leading U.S. travel site urges its readers to make travel plans to visit the country soon after the pandemic passes.
Vietnam has eased its social distancing restrictions since April 23 and its popular tourist destinations have reopened. The government has also allowed "non-essential" services except karaoke parlours and discos to resume operation.
Recognition of the nation as a leading travel destination came after the US magazine voted the ancient town of Hoi An in the central province of Quang Nam as the best city for tourists to visit in the world last year due to its long history of culture, beautiful beaches, unique architecture, and alluring cuisine.
