Sa Pa where the earth meets the sky
Perched at nearly 2,000 meters above sea level, Sa Pa is nicknamed "the city of the haze". It has a temperate climate with, sometimes, four seasons in the same day. Its beautiful landscapes and the cultural diversity of its ethnic groups make it one of the most popular sites in Vietnam.
In Sa Pa, it is possible to visit the old church, in French architectural style. In addition, a trip to the Cat Cat village, a visit to the Mount Hàm Rông, a hike in the Muong Hoa valley or a visit to Fansipan, the highest peak in the country, are possible. The Tram Tôn Pass, the highest pass in the country, offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
The city has become an ideal destination for domestic and foreign travelers, especially since the opening of the Nôi Bài - Lào Cai highway, which makes it possible to reduce the journey time between Hanoi and Sa Pa by only three and a half hours.
