Sapa – a town located deep in the mountains of northwest Vietnam and very close to China, so you can feel the similarities in the culture of the region. This is the time you should be in Sapa and the things you should know first.

I. How beautiful is Sapa town?

Sapa itself is picturesque when it’s clear, but if it’s foggy and you can’t see the mountains in the distance, everything looks the same. As a destination that has grown from a small hill to a must-see tourist destination in less than 15 years. This is a place with ravishing scenery, relaxing feeling like living in white clouds. The colors, culture and cuisine of this place are all ethnically unique.

All of these places are within walking distance of each other in less than twenty minutes. My favorite thing we found in Sapa is walking down the hill out of Sapa town, a new four star hotel where you can enjoy the sunset view of the nearby rice terraces visible from the road.
