Sapa Vietnam is about 350 km north-west of Hanoi. It is famous for its fine & rugged scenery as well as its rich cultural diversity. Sapa is usually covered in a cool and foggy atmosphere.

A night train from Hanoi to Lao Cai and then another 45 minutes from Lao Cai by bus, you will find the lovely Sapa appear in fanciful fog right in front of your eyes. The best time to visit this scenic town is April and May when the place is blossoming with colors, pink and white flowers and green pastures in valleys.

Aside from a leisure and relaxation time in this pleasant weather, visiting Sapa's prideful natural beauty spots such as Ham Rong Mountain, Silver Waterfall, Rattan Britge, Bamboo forest and Ta Phin Cave is a great experience. This place is also where the climb of many Fansipan Mount (the highest mountain in Vietnam) climbers started.

Sapa is called the land of love for its various flowers of captivating colors in the vast country. The whole town is decorated in pink color of peach blossom in Lunar Tet. It is also regarded as the kingdom of orchids with hundred kinds of brilliant colors and fantastic shapes such as Orchid Princess or Orchid of My Fair Lady's shoe.
