Sa Pa strives to become key global tourist attraction - 9/19/2016

 

The information was revealed by Nguyen Huu The, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee at a recent press conference introducing political, cultural and tourist events in the province between 2016 and 2017.

To make the dream come true, Sa Pa is focusing on improving infrastructure, accommodations and services to better serve tourists, especially the building of accommodation facilities of three stars or more, said Ha Manh Thang, Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The upcoming inauguration of the Lao Cai-Sa Pa expressway is expected to make it easier for the town to lure visitors, he added.

Located at 1,600 metres above the sea level in Vietnam’s northwest mountains, Sa Pa is a picturesque town famous for its fine, rugged scenery in lien with rich cultural diversity of many ethnic minority groups.

Home to many hill tribes, rice terraces, lush vegetation and Fansipan, the highest peak of the country, Sa Pa has become an ideal destination for domestic and foreign travellers.
