Sapa (Lao Cai province) is a poor district in Northern Vietnam. Almost all of the local population are ethnic people, who are semi-illiterate and lack education. Most of these people are farmers with very low income, living in difficult conditions.
Sapa today is the tourism center of the northwest.
Sapa is orientated to make the most of the spectacular views emerging on clear days; overlooking a plunging valley, with mountains towering above on all sides. Views of this epic scenery are often subdued by thick mist rolling across the peaks, but even when it's cloudy, local hill-tribe people fill the town with color.
This is northern Vietnam's premier trekking base from where hikers launch themselves into a surrounding countryside of cascading rice terraces and tiny hill-tribe villages that seem a world apart. Once you've stepped out into the lush fields, you'll understand the Sapa area's real charm.
