Trekking along rice terraces, tribal villages and mountainous terrains
Mountainous areas of northern Vietnam are among the best places all over the country for trekking, and Sapa is not out of this bucket list. Taking a trekking route in Sapa is the possibility to help you get out of the tourist trails, lead you to explore remote places, which are completely off the beaten track. Natural dramatic scenery in Sapa must be one of the most spectacular views that you've ever witnessed in your life. In case you prefer a less challenging journey, a short hiking route within a day or to nearby villages, along popular main roads is also a great option. As Sapa offers a wide range of trekking and hiking routes from easy to hard level, you can choose the route which is the most suitable for you, depending on your trekking skills and ability.
Explore the indigenous culture
Local culture is a unique charm that Sapa attracts tourists beside the amazing landscape. The distinct living condition has helped local ethnic communities here create their own traditions and customs which are different from the others. You can easily experience Sapa’s lifestyle through local markets, the fair for all trade among locals and only take place on specific dates in a month. To get to closer to their daily life, don’t hesitate to try visiting tribal villages through your trekking route, tasting local food, staying overnight with locals in rustic stilt houses and directly seeing how local costumes and traditional handicrafts are made. Their very unique way of life harmoniously associated with nature in Sapa is always tempting for you to come and explore.

Visit numerous places for amazing sights
There are numerous places which are ideal for having a bird’s eye view overlooking Sapa’s breathtaking scenery. You can easily set off some of them in your trip, which are not forcing you have a trekking route such as: Tram Ton Pass – Heaven’s Gate (a superb place to see panoramic view of great valley below and O Quy Ho Pass – one of four greatest passes in NorthWestern Vietnam), Ham Rong Mount (ideal location to enjoy the imposing panorama of Sapa town and a part of SunWorld Fansipan Legend leading to Fansipan Peak) or just a cafeteria along Fansipan, Violet and Muong Hoa Road, which has balcony or outside terrace to witness the great view of Sapa’s beauty, etc.
Take a cable car ride to Fansipan Mountain (Indochina Summit)
Being Indochina Summit with the height of 3143m above sea level, Mount Fansipan is a truly tough challenge for anyone who dreams of standing on top of Indochina once in a lifetime. Instead of climbing from two to four days before, the cable car journey operated by Sun World Fansipan Legend has shortened the time conquering Fansipan within around 15 minutes. The cable car ride is not too long, but it is enough for you to admire the beautiful natural landscape which is thousands of meters away underneath. After arriving at the cable station on the top, it will take about 20 – 30 minutes to climb 600 more stairs to reach Fansipan peak, the roof of Indochina. Standing on the Peak, which is over 3000 metres above the sea level – an unimaginable altitude, and widen your eyes to surrounding mountains peaks among a sea of the clouds is indeed a priceless moment of your whole lifetime. You’d better spend half of a day to explore Sun World Fansipan Legend which is a huge complex of spiritual, recreation, cuisine and sightseeing in Sapa.
Combining both culture and natural beauty into one enticing package, Sapa is definitely worth visiting if you have the chance.

Depending on which method of transport you choose, getting to Sapa from Hanoi can be a time-consuming and energy draining process. I strongly recommend including some time in your itinerary for rest – e.g. set aside your first afternoon/evening for recovery.
While it is technically possible to visit Sapa as a day trip from Hanoi, it’s not advisable.
There are very few companies that offer this option, simply because the drive is so long. Even if you left Hanoi at 6am, you wouldn’t arrive in Sapa until after lunch. That would only give you a few hours to explore.
I strongly recommend an alternative day trip such as Ninh Binh (< 2 hours from Hanoi) or even Halong Bay (< 3 hours from Hanoi).
