Sapa is the place to visit if you prefer the chilly weather over the tropical climate.

Within one day in Sapa, you can experience different weather from all four seasons: a cool spring morning, a summer afternoon with a little sunlight, a cloudy and foggy autumn evening with a cool breeze, and finally, a cold winter night.

The best time to travel to Sapa is in October, November, March, and April. During these times, the rain gets lighter, and the weather is not as freezing. Especially in spring (around April) when all the flowers start to bloom, you can witness a magnificent picturesque scene in this mountain city.

I didn't know there's so much to do in Sapa. We did visit the local market and it was such an amazing experience. Really didn't expect to see some people speaking English though. We bought home some of the handmade fabric. Those are very high quality for a very reasonable price. Will definitely plan a hiking trip if I get the chance to visit again. I am completely in love with the scenery here and truly looking forward to exploring more.
