(TRAVPR.COM) VIETNAM – December 27th, 2013 – HUE, Viet Nam — Seasoned travellers from around the globe lauded four Vietnamese hotels among the best worldwide, according to the latest survey by Travel + Leisure magazine.

Travel + Leisure, one of the globe’s highest circulating travel magazines, invited its readers to participate in the annual survey by answering a questionnaire and rating hotel candidates in five categories: rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants and value. A minimum number of responses was required for a hotel to be eligible for inclusion in the World’s Best awards, considered one of the most important in the industry.
The 112-year-old Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi once again earned the highest marks among Vietnamese contenders, while all-villa resort The Nam Hai made its second appearance on the prestigious list, and art-deco hotel La Residence claimed its first win from Travel + Leisure readers. Mombo Camp and Little Mombo Camp in Botswana led the winners with an average score of 96.60.
