In the Sapa attractions are not really a lot. Here you can visit the Museum of Sapa, to see the Catholic Church, and on weekends: love market in the Central square. Within walking distance of the town centre are worthy places to visit ethnic village of cat Cat and Park and ham Rong mountain, but to visit we would recommend it only if you are not able to go into a full-fledged trekking in the surrounding countryside.

Kind of places are the markets and the locals, especially if you come here for the first time. The ethnic groups of Hmong, Dzao, Thai and others in their colorful clothes are walking around the city and offer tourists to buy their simple homemade gifts, go on trekking. Mostly they gather around the town square (love market), or just settle down with the goods in the lanes.

Also from Sapa by yourself or with the travelers travel to more remote from the town: in the village of BAC Ha, a town of Lai Chau (Lai Chau), Dien bien Phu.

As far as entertainment for tourists, nothing here. You can just walk around the city, looking in local shops taking pictures of the locals. In the centre there is a small Park of Sapa with sculptures, and sometimes there's work or exhibit their work to local artists. Another area for walking – Park and paths around the lake of Sapa, where you can ride on boats in the form of swans. In the city centre there are many cafés, restaurants and bars where you can SIP a Cup of coffee at lunch or dinner, but no bars and no discos in Sapa you will not find few exceptions. After 20 hours, the city gradually falls asleep. If you are somewhere and hear the noisy company, it would probably be a group of young Europeans, the besiegers bar to the last, and nothing more.

But much more saturated with attractions in the surroundings of Sapa, and the main one is trekking in ethnic villages through the beautiful valleys and mountains, or climbing the highest mountain Fansipan. Especially interesting trekking tour with overnight stays in ethnic villages, and to sleep you'll be in conditions as close to real in the homes of local residents who converted their homes into homestay for tourists. To do these routes you can tour that are sold at any travel Agency and hotel, or by yourself.
