The aim is to develop the tourism industry in Vietnam's largest city.

Tourists will be asked to select their top five destinations - museums, landmarks, historical sites or even events - around the city.

They will also be encouraged to add their five favourite restaurants, dishes, cafes and markets, among other things.

The programme will last from December 2011 through March 2012.

The top 100 list will be announced in April of next year.

La Quoc Khanh, Deputy Director of the department, said the they encourage businesses and institutions to nominate themselves, but the final decision will be made by tourists votes.

This is the second time such a programme has been carried out in Ho Chi Minh City. The first one was launched in 2009.
