Vietnam ranked fourth among the best cities for street food


Ho Chi Minh City of Vietnam has been ranked fourth among 50 best cities for street food, according to a latest survey by CEOWorld.

Turns out the list was ranked based on votes from travelers who are also food lovers. According to the US’s business magazine, 92,000 business travelers and 1,400 corporate travel agents from over 86 countries and territories took part in the survey.

The survey measures the cities on four parameters: number of street food vendors, affordability, number of street food experiences, and food hygiene.

In the list, Singapore was ranked first, followed by Bangkok of Thailand and Hong Kong (China). Ho Chi Minh City of Vietnam was in the fourth while Mumbai of India was in the fifth place.

Vietnamese cuisine has become better known in the world over the last couple of years, with international chefs and prestigious food magazines praising several national dishes.

CNN last Wednesday named Vietnam’s pho noodle soup and fresh summer rolls among the world’s 50 best dishes.

Earlier this year, the cable TV channel made five recommendations for a food tour in Hanoi to foreign tourists and international reporters covering the Trump-Kim summit where the U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un found ways to advance peace on the Korean peninsula.

Vietnamese ranked among the world’s 15 favorite cuisines in a survey released earlier this year by YouGov, a British online market research company.

Some of the dishes found on street corners here have made it to all corners of the world, like banh mi, a Vietnamese sandwich which has been listed in the top 20 street foods in the world by Fodor’s Travel, a U.S travel site.
