Hostelworld has revealed its top 11 up-and-coming destinations for 2019, based on its year-on-year increases in total bookings made from 2017 2018.

Ha Giang in Vietnam’s north has been named among 11 up-and-coming destinations for 2019, according to a list released by Hostelworld, a leading brand for millennials and other budgetconscious travellers seeking adventure and a social travel experience.

Ha Giang province is described as the most beautiful place in the area, with its sweeping landscape sceneries. Bordering China, the panoramic views over the terraced rice fields will blow you away.

Coron in Philippines tops the list, followed by Arugam Bay and Ella in Sri Lanka, Labuan Bajo and Holbox in Mexico, Nusa Lembongan in Indonesia, Unawatuna in Sri Lanka, Ha Giang province in Vietnam, Beirut in Lebanon, Yasawa in Fiji, Goreme in Turkey.

Vietnam aims to receive about 18 million foreign visitors and carter to 85 million domestic ones in 2019, and earn more than VND700 trillion (US$30.2 billion) from tourism, according to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
