Sapa is an interesting destination and offers a little insight into local tourism tastes, it is far more developed toward Vietnamese and regional visitors rather than those from North America. The mountainous terrain offers great views and a bit of an escape from the seaside or river's edge attractions elsewhere in Vietnam.

Sapa is increasingly more developed in terms of tourism infrastructure, but it is a relative newcomer among operators hosting visitors from Canada or the United States. That can mean a little bit of an adventure while not asking you to rough it in a bunk. You'll enjoy Sapa if you like hiking and great views!

Planning your trip

Even local Vietnamese visitors come to Sapa to explore the mountainous regions of the country's north. You should certainly try hiking, just remember to stick to the trails if you're not enjoying the helpful services of a guide.

When you should go

Sapa is a great little mountain town you can visit at any time during the year. You'll find the weather most comfortable during the late spring months and into summer, as although Vietnam is a tropical country, Sapa is quite far north and at elevation.

The drier months of the year fall in March through May and again September through November.
