Sapa was discovered during a French colonial period investigation of hill tribes. In 1898, the first exploratory expedition arrived in Lao Cai. H'mong, Tay, Dao Do, Giay, and Xa Pho are the most common hill tribes in Sapa. And now, as Sapa develops as a unique tourist destination, Kinh people are flocking there to do business. Sapa is surrounded by the Hoang Lien Son mountain range and the iconic Fansipan summit, which provides a pleasant temperature all year. It is spring in the mornings, with temperatures around 15°C, summer in the afternoons, with bright sunshine and breezes, hazy in the evenings, and winter at night. Sapa is one of the few spots in Vietnam where it snows occasionally.

Sapa, which translates to "sand settlement" or "sand village," is situated at a height of 1,500 meters on the Lo Suay Tong slope. From the top of this mountain, at a height of 2,228 meters, we can see the southeast of Sapa. Sapa is therefore cool all year and cold in the winter. When you visit Sapa in the summer, you can experience four seasons in one day. It is cool in the mornings and afternoons, similar to spring and fall weather. At noon, the sun shines brightly, as if it were summer weather but the air is cool as winter. In the evening, it is as cold as winter weather.

Because of the cool weather, Sapa has many flowers that are unique to Vietnam, such as peach, apricot, plum, cherry, and orchids. Sapa is most beautiful in the spring, when many different types of flowers bloom in a variety of colors. Sapa has so many beautiful landscapes, such as the Ham Rong Mountains, Silver Waterfall, Rattan Bridge, Bamboo Forest, Ta Phin Cave, and so on. Sapa is also well-known among those who enjoy trekking and climbing to the top of Fansipan Mountain, Vietnam's highest peak, also known as the Roof of Indochina, at 3,143 meters.

In addition, Sapa is home to many ethnic minority groups, including the H'mong, Dao, Tay, Giay, Muong, Thai, Hoa, Xa Pho, and others. The Red Dao, who make up the majority of the population in Ta Phin village, and the Black H'mong, who live in Cat Cat village, are the two largest ethnic minority groups. A distinctive embroidery method is used by some ethnic minority groups. As a result, you can purchase embroidered items manufactured by local ethnic groups such as the H'mong and Dao. Sapa is noted for its unique celebrations, such as the Giay Ta Van people's Roong Pooc festival, the H'mong people's Sai san festival, the Red Dao people's Tet Nhay festival, and so on. The most famous market in Sapa is the love market, where people sing a variety of H'mong folk songs while listening to the sound of the Dao people's flute.
