Hanoi comes 42nd in the global rankings, as it is known for its rich history, French colonial architecture, and vibrant markets.

Although many choose to navigate Hanoi by motorcycle, discovering the city on foot offers a deeper immersion into the millennia-old history of Vietnam, giving guests the chance to sample its delicious street food and experience the dynamic urban life in one of Asia’s most fascinating cultural hubs, the article wrote.

Elsewhere, the 87th position went to Hoi An in the central region. The ancient city is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port from the 15th to the 19th century.

Known for its old town illuminated by colourful lanterns, unique architecture, and custom tailoring, Hoi An enchants all who visit, the website reported.

As the nation’s vibrant commercial centre, Ho Chi Minh City is in 99th position in the world. The southern city offers a mix of French colonial architecture, modern skyscrapers, and historical sites like the War Remnants Museum, all of which are well worth exploring on foot.

Spain is the most walkable country, according to the findings, with 28 cities making the top 100 list. France features seven times, while the UK appears three times along with Poland, Colombia, and Vietnam. Only one city from the United States makes the cut.

The 100-strong list is based on booking and search data for 800 cities across 120 countries made on the GuruWalk website between April 2023 and April 2024.

The company, which offers free walking tours worldwide, compared the number of bookings and page visits per destination in order to compile the list.
