About the Tour

This Sapa – Can Cau Market Tour 3D2N, Depart Daily gives you a chance to explore the famous mountainous town of Vietnam, named Sapa and learn about culture, tradition, custom, society of Ethnic people through the local market.

Sapa is a mountain region in North Vietnam, located at the height of 1500-1650 meters above sea level. Considered one of the most interesting destinations for traveling not only in North Vietnam but also the whole country. It is distinguished by the beautiful natural landscapes, diversity of minority people, mountain spaces, clouds covering towering peaks, rice terrace fields, and especially the 3143 high Fansipan Peak, which is famous as the Indochina Roof.

Going to Fansipan Peak regardless of the season, sitting on the cable car cabin turning thousands of clouds, in the middle of the vast sky and the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, visitors will have a feeling of peace.
