Since 2020, “Flying in the flower season in Sapa” has become a “summer tourism trademark” of Sapa. It has opened the gate for tourists to this misty land to enjoy their summers with various promotions and plenty of flowers, flower beds, and flower valleys full of everlasting beauty.

Flowers bloom at the same time to give the tourists a truly incredible experience in Sapa.

Right at the Sun World Fansipan Legend tourist area, the “Fansipan flower valley” is blooming and full of colours: purple flower hills, butterfly-likes chrysanthemums, and antique and infrared roses. All are blooming at the same time, giving the tourists the best experience of the beautiful flower season in Sapa.

Fansipan is popular as the most extensive rose valley in the country, with an area of 50,000 square meters, located right beside Fansipan cable station.

Fansipan rose valley provides a union of hundreds of antique and infrared roses, including “million-dollar roses” such as Juliet roses, Aoi roses, Black Baccara, Catalina, Golden Celebration, Maurice Utrillo, Rouge Royale, Éclair, and Spirit of Freedom.

The purple flower hill stands out in Fansipan.

Alongside the mountainside cable station, there is a purple flower hill, with an area of 15,000 square meters, standing out in the middle of Fansipan. This has been one of the most popular tourist attractions in Sapa for years. Many tourists liken the everlasting purple of the flower hills to the faraway purple lavender beds in Provence, France.

Standing beside the rose valley is a pure white safflower garden. It looks as romantic as many scenes in Europe. Located right in the mountain-climbing train exit, it brightens the land and sky at the bottom of Fansipan mountain.

The vibrant yellow sunflower garden shines in a bright corner of the Northwest sky. 

Hoang Hai Yen, from Hanoi, said: “Back to Sapa is back to nature. I go to Sapa and visit Fansipan every summer. The gardens of flowers connect with each other, making a never-ending line along the mountain bottom. Standing on the rooftop of Indochina, seeing overlapping mountains, and relaxing in the cool environment is enough for an amazing summer.”

The launch of the “Azalea love story” show touches tourists profoundly.

This flower season, Sun World Fansipan Legend also gives the tourist a special gift, bringing the “Flying in the flower season in Sapa” to tourists and as well as the“Azalea love story” show.

Being inspired by Azaleas, a significant flower of Hoang Lien Son Forest and mountain area, with sounds, and dances full of traditional cultures of the highland people, the “Azalea love story” takes the tourists on a Northwest journey.

In between the overlapping mountains, the pan-pipe sounds of Hmong people wail with the upbeat rhythms of Dao drums, and bamboos rattle as if they are inviting tourists to join in the fun with Do and Quyen and their wedding full of colours.

All the boys have grace and the girls charming smiles in their brocade costumes. Everyone is passionate about the dance, recreating the poetic love story of Do and Quyen in the mountains of the Northwest.

The show serves tourists from June 5 to 15, 2022.

Through the language of music and contemporary dance, the show cleverly takes tourists on a journey of exploring Fansipan. It showcases the quintessence of the Northwest.

The show is performed for tourists from June 5 to June 15, 2022, every day at the stage in front of Trinh Temple cable station.

From Monday to Thursday, the show is at 9am and 11am. And for the three last days of the week, the times for the show are 9am, 11am and 1pm.

“Flying in the flower season in Sapa” provides a relaxing itinerary to explore Sapa in the cool summer environment. It is why the area is known as the “resting heaven of the Northwest area”.

Going by cable car through the mountains to Fansipan peak, this heaven gradually unfolds. The air is fresh and pleasant, and a sea of clouds flows across the sky.

At the bottom of the mountains, the terrace fields sparkle as water gently falls. The sunset is vibrantly red, and the shapes of Viet temples constructed during the 15th and 16th centuries stand firm in the middle of majestic mountains and forests, echoing with the sound of afternoon bells.

Van Sam Restaurant welcomes tourists to try Northwest specialities.

Getting off the cable car, Northwest food specialities are calling. They are irresistible and tourists can try the buffet in Van Sam restaurant. When night falls, all restaurants are full of the aroma of barbeque and fish hotpot, wafting through the centre of the town. Sapa is rich in fragrance, flavour and charm, day and night.

Sapa is a vibrant yet relaxing summer destination with lots of colours and flavours. How can you resist Sapa and visiting Fansipan?
