  • The fair is equal to all the fairs that are around Vietnam. Excessive animal food and prices that vary depending on your face. There are also souvenirs to buy and children asking you to buy them the little things that their families force them to sell (please DO NOT).

  • The Hotels in town tell you not to buy from the mobile street vendors and to come here instead. Individual decision I guess but this is more expensive and it is yet to be determined whether the qualit...  more »

  • In the winter , I went on a vacation to Sapa, and that was the nicest place I have ever been to. After passing through several hills that were covered in mist, Sapa finally appeared as a beautiful floating island in the cloud. There are many beautiful hotels and villas in Sapa, and all of them together create a very ancient atmosphere. The famous destination in Sapa is the Silver Waterfall, the current carries a huge amount of water down the cliffs, and it makes a sound which can be heard in a long distance. In the evening, we hang around at the outdoor market. There are many interesting featuring goods of Sapa that I did not have chance to see before. The next day we spent most of our time going out to enjoy the natural sight. The most dramatic scene here is the terraced rice fields. I have never thought that a farm scene could be this beautiful. The sunset here is also very different, and we can completely harmonize into the miraculous nature in Sapa. I love the atmosphere here, and I hope that I am able to come back here one day.
  • Cold with great view behind. Local people are smiling and buying their ingredients to cook. If you love to explore real life of people without fake and commercial, come here to see with your own eyes
  • A typical local market but rather big n has diverse n variety of goods n stuffs you can witness esp, the ethnic textiles, table cloth, ethnic costume, bags n more. Local made veggies, herbs, spices to local cuisine can be all found here. Good place to explore the locals.
  • I give it a 4 star simply because it is the big market of Sapa town. Besides the food, which is quite adequate, you will find lots of souvenir type of things to purchase.
  • Lots of places selling nuts also told not from Sapa region make sure you buy the ones from the local region some from China they may be cheaper but not as tasty as the Sapa nuts personally I like the walnuts and pistachio the macadamias are good as well. A bit more expensive but it's worth the extra few thousand. Yeah lots of tasty nuts here in Sapa not enough people talk about it it is really good tasty and fresh but you need to bargain the bit with the sellers
