Getting to the peak of the highest mountain in Vietnam would be quite a strenuous trek, requiring hours (or sometimes even days) of hiking, but seeing the sea of clouds at the top of Fansipan Mountain is definitely worth it. If you’re not too physically fit, you can opt for the Sunworld Fansipan Legend cable car, which boasts as the longest non-stop three-rope cable car.
Visit the Love Waterfall and learn more about the legend behind its name. It is said that a fairy fell in love with a boy who often plays his flute near the falls, and when the fairy’s parents didn’t approve of the match, the fairy chose to become a bird to be with the boy. People say the falls is still home to fairies.
If you’re not up for the trek to the mountain or the falls, explore the Ham Rong Flower Garden and enjoy the colorful flowers and the amazing view overlooking the Sapa Town and Sapa Lake.
When you’re ready to shop for souvenirs, head over to the Sapa Market for locally made handicrafts, utensils, and clothing.
It’s best to visit Sapa from December to February so that you can enjoy a much cooler environment with an average temperature of 13 degrees Celsius.
