Sapa Town, at 1.5km above sea level

Sapa town is located in a mountainous region near to the frontier of Vietnam. If you are taking the train from Hanoi, you will first reach a town called Lao Cai.

Lao Cai is right across the border from China and if you travel around Lao Cai, you could see some buildings across a river that belong to China.

Sapa, being a mountainous region, is dominated by different ethnic minority groups such as Hmong, Dao and Giay.
