Sapa

Trip Planner Asia  /  Vietnam  /  Lao Cai Province  /  Sapa
A hub of tourism in the country's northwestern mountainous region, Sapa represents home for a large number of ethnic minorities from the hill tribes of the region, and acts as a base for explorations of the surrounding area's wealth of natural sights. Established as a hill station by the French, the city's colonial-era buildings have long since started to crumble, adding an evocative historical air to the colors of the traditional dress worn by the local Hmong, Dao, and Tay people. Outdoor adventuring and cultural exploration remain the main reasons to visit Sapa, with the urban area dissolving into a vast spread of rice terraces punctuated by small, traditional hill-tribe villages. Our Vietnam trip itinerary app allows you to plan your trip to Sapa and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
