Sapa and the North
A refreshing mountain gateway

Located in Vietnam's remote north west mountains, Sapa is famous for both its fine, rugged scenery and also its rich cultural diversity. Its lush, deep river valleys, in the shadows of Vietnam's tallest peak Mount Fansipan, are home to Blue H'mong and Red Dao communities, who continue to maintain their strong traditions and warmly welcome visitors to their homes.

The mountainous north of Vietnam is one of the most beautiful, yet under-visited regions in the country. Home to many ethnic communities such as the Hmong and Yao, the area appears to have more in common with areas of northern Laos and Thailand than it does with modern day Vietnam. Traditional rice terraces flow down the steep hillsides, while ancient jungles still teem with life. The town of Sapa has a refreshingly cool mountain climate and French colonial feel, making it the perfect summer retreat.

Sapa is also famous for its street market, which attracts villagers from the surrounding hills and is particularly busy on Saturdays. The unique embroidery, jewelry and clothes of the H'mong and Dao are good to buy here, and the sight of dozens of minority women in their traditional clothing is a memorable part of anyone who stays in Sapa.
