Xem anh phong to
More than 30,000 visitors from home and abroad vacationed at the popular mountainous resort town of Sa Pa in the northern province of Lao Cai during the five-day holiday.

The figure makes up around 70 percent of the volume of tourists to the province for the holiday, according to Le Manh Hao, head of Sa Pa district’s culture, sports and tourism office.

Located 38km from Lao Cai city, the whole town of Sa Pa is dominated by the Hoang Lien Son mountain range which is famous for containing Fansipan, Indochina’s highest mountain, at a height of 3,142m above sea level.

The town was discovered in 1903 and is endowed with myriad natural sites, such as Ham Rong Mountain, Silver Waterfall and Bamboo Forest.

The town is home to six main ethnic minority groups with various traditional festivals, unique cultural practices and regular events such as Bac Ha market and Sa Pa love market.

In 2009, the famous US Travel and Leisure magazine voted the Sa Pa terraces as one of the seven most beautiful and spectacular terraces in Asia and the world.

In early November 2013, on the 110th founding anniversary of the town, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism decided to rank Sa Pa terraced fields as a National Landscape site.
