HỘI AN — The Hội An Memories Land has been voted as the World Leading Cultural Tourism and Entertainment Complex 2023 at the 30th annual World Travel Awards in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
It’s the second award in a row that the Hội An ancient town-based complex of tourism, art performance, entertainment and resort & spa in the middle of the Thu Bồn River has won after the first successful vote at the annual event in Oman, the complex’s communication and media said.
It said the complex had tough competition to edge out Thailand’s Legend Siam and Ocean Park Hong Kong in the vote for the victorious award the second time.
The complex also joined a cheerful moment with Hà Nội as the capital was voted as the World Leading City Break destination; Sun Group’s Sun World Fansipan as the World Leading attraction, and Khánh Hòa province’s Empyrean Cam Ranh beach resort with the World Leading leisure resort awards.
The Hội An Memories Land is the first and only combined art performance and resort in the UNESCO-recognised world heritage site of Hội An and the tourism hub in central Việt Nam.
It creates an art entertainment option for domestic and international visitors in Hội An town at night.

It hosts the Ký Ức Hội An (Hội An Memories) – a 60-minute show on the 400-year history and development of Hội An during the Đại Việt (Great Việt) State in the 15th-18th century — on the open-air stage in the middle of the Thu Bồn River.
The show, which debuted in 2018, features the daily life activities of people in Hội An including silk trade, pottery, folk performances, a busy trading port town, and the cultures of Japanese, Chinese, and Europeans through visits by merchant ships to Hội An during the 14th century.
The show was recognised as the leading historical spectacle at the Best Hotels-Resorts Awards by Wanderlust Tips in South Korea, and was chosen to be shown at Times Square, New York in the US in 2019.
