Sapa by Victoria Express
Sapa is a former French hill station situated in the sweeping valleys near the Chinese border. Its high elevation of 1600 meters creates its cool climate which inspired the French to build villas there as a summer retreat. Today, Sapa still attracts visitors for its stunning scenery, comfortable climate, colorful markets, and a variety of ethnic hill tribes who live in nearby villages. This program has increasingly become popular through the years with improvements in the road conditions and the new 4-star Victoria Sapa Hotel making travel today much easier and more comfortable.
