Awaken at dawn, refreshed and ready for your first day in the former French hill station of Sapa, known for its cool temperatures and delightful mix of Nature and Culture in its postcard-pretty terraced rice fields and colourful ethnic minority groups.
Transfer 1 hr from the Lao Cai Train Station, just minutes from the Chinese border, to the stylish Victoria Sapa Resort & Spa where a beautiful buffet breakfast awaits. Sip a velvety smooth Vietnamese drip coffee as you look out over Mount Fansipan, Indochina’s highest peak.
In the afternoon, get your first taste of Sapa with a half-day excursion to Suoi Ho - Ma Tra Village. Take a walk around the village populated by ethnic minorities for a little insight into the villagers' way of life. Your driver will pick you up around 17h30 to bring you up to the town.
In the evening, sit down to a lovely dinner at Ta Van Restaurant, with a seat by its large central fireplace or on the outdoor terrace with views over the nearby mountain range. The restaurant also features traditional performances by H’mong and Thai minority dancers on select evenings (Saturday).
Overnight at Victoria Sapa Resort & Spa, a 77-room boutique property designed to embody the spirit of Sapa, from its stone and wood buildings that evoke the feel of an exclusive Alpine lodge to the wooden floors and locally-woven textiles in each stylish guest room. Relax and enjoy our swimming pool and hotel facilities: massage, sauna, fitness center, tennis court...
