Nestled high in the Tonkinese Alps near the Chinese border, Sapa was built as a French hill station to serve as a respite from stifling Hanoi summers. These days, weekends are still the biggest draw in this bustling small town. Visitors from the capital flock to Sapa for a glimpse of the famed Saturday night "Love Market", treks to local hill tribe villages, or an ascent of Vietnam's highest peak, Mount Fanxipan. Sapa itself is a busy little town; a crossroad of cultures converging then venturing off into the inspirational, misty mountain landscape.

Nestled high in the Tonkinese Alps near the Chinese border, Sapa was built as a French hill station to serve as a respite from stifling Hanoi summers. These days, weekends are still the biggest draw in this bustling small town. Visitors from the capital flock to Sapa for a glimpse of the famed Saturday night "Love Market", treks to local hill tribe villages, or an ascent of Vietnam's highest peak, Mount Fanxipan.

Sapa itself is a busy little town; a crossroad of cultures converging then venturing off into the inspirational, misty mountain landscape. On a clear day you will treated to views of steeply terraced rice fields, towering verdant ridgelines, ethnic minority villages, raging rivers and astounding waterfalls. The area offers superb trekking to nearby hill tribe villages tucked within the terraced rice paddies.

Some eight ethnic groups inhabit Lao Cai province: Hmong, Dao, White Thai, Giay, Tay, Muong, Hao and Xa Pho. The most prominent in town are the Red Dao, easily identified by the coin-dangling red headdresses and intricately embroidered waistcoats worn by the women; and the Black Hmong, distinguished by their simply embroidered royal blue attire. Many of the locals that frequent Sapa , especially the women and children, can speak near fluent English and are incredibly friendly. One to four-day treks are offered by several outfitters. Guests usually sleep in the traditional village homestays.

Topping out at 3,143 meters, Fansipan has become the most challenging hike / trek in Vietnam. There are a variety of options and routes that will see one to the summit.

A number of small hotels ranging from 2 to 5 star ranking are available for the tourist. In recent years the town has seen an influx of investment and a number of quaint coffee shops and restaurants serving local and international food are available.

The best times of the year to visit Sapa are in the spring and fall. Early summer tends to be rainy and muddy; while winter temperatures can drop to the freezing mark (Sapa saw snow in years 2000 and 2010!). However, the infamous Sapa mist does make for some incredible photographs.

The best time to visit Sapa is from September to November or from March to May, when the weather is fairly settled with dry sunny days and clear cold nights. In April and May, Sapa is blooming with flowers and green pastures.

During winter from Mid December to February, you can get some great feelings with the weather and sightseeing at there, Winters can be decidedly chilly, especially in the Northeast where night frosts are not uncommon from December to February, but the compensation is daybreak mists and breathtaking sunrise views high above valleys filled with early-morning lakes of cloud.

The rainy season lasts from May to September, peaking in July and August, when heavy downpours wash out bridges, turn unsealed roads into quagmires and throw in the occasional landslides for good measure.
