The World Travel Awards (WTA) 2020 unveiled its Asia 2020 winners on November 3, 2020, and once again, Sun World Fansipan Legend developed by Sun Group in Sa Pa, Lao Cai was named as "Vietnam’s Leading Tourist Attraction".
The 2020 World Tourism Awards (WTA) - Asia Gala Ceremony did not take place as usual due to the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the organising committee announced the list of winners on its official website (https://www.worldtravelawards.com) at dawn on November 3, 2020 (Vietnam time). At this gala ceremony, Sun World Fansipan Legend Resort continues to retain the title of "Vietnam's Leading Tourist Attraction 2020".
Sun World Fansipan Legend Tourist Area
As the travel industry's most prestigious awards program in the world since 1993, WTA is considered as a measure of service quality, as well as a title desired by any organisation operating in tourism and travel across the globe. Being honoured as "Vietnam’s Leading Tourist Attraction" for two consecutive years affirms Sun World Fansipan Legend's position in Vietnam’s tourism industry, while at the same time honouring Sun Group's tireless efforts in creating first class and attractive tourist attractions capable of changing the face and position of this land.
Cheering this special event, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Chien - Director of Sun World Fansipan Legend said: “This is a mark of great pride for the resort, especially in such a difficult year as 2020 under the severe impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are well-deserved for our efforts in improving service quality and creating new experiences while ensuring that Sun World Fansipan Legend is a safe destination to attract visitors to Sa Pa. This noble award will motivate us to make more efforts in the future.”
A cable car to take visitors to the top of Fansipan
Sun World Fansipan Legend was invested by Sun Group and opened in 2016 in Sa Pa Town, Lao Cai Province. The resort offers visitors a journey with a multitude of experiences with bold cultural and natural beauty of the Northwest of Vietnam. Visitors can take journeys through the sea of clouds on the world's longest three-rope cable car and through Hoang Lien Son mountain range to reach the legendary peak of Mount Fansipan or a magnificent spiritual architectural complex right on the "Roof of Indochina", with the pagoda roofs leaning on the side of the mountain, hidden in the sea of clouds, as magnificent as a wonderland.
Spiritual complex on Mount Fansipan
Festivals throughout the year are also continuously held at the resort, enabling visitors to truly experience the life of the highland people, with the melodious sounds of leaf-horn and mouth harp, vibrant brocade or enjoying the taste of highland culinary specialties.
Sun World Fansipan Legend is also an interesting natural destination, the land of flowers blooming all year round, from bright yellow rape flowers like beams of sunlight, beautiful azaleas at the top of the sky, or the verbena officinalis in a romantic purple on the whole mountain slope. This is also the only place where visitors can see the largest rose valley in Vietnam with rare varieties of ancient roses, enjoy the breathtaking natural scenery of Sa Pa with gorgeous mountains and the world's most beautiful rice terrace from "Vietnam's longest mountain rail route" or have an adventure with magic performances from Dance on the Clouds - "The most unique art show expressing the Northwest Northwestern folk culture".
Space in the Sun World Fansipan Legend tourism area
With a professional, unique and caring style and clear vision of travel service provision, Sun Group successfully illustrates a vibrant and dynamic Northwest of Vietnam right at Sun World Fansipan Legend and makes significant contributions to the development of tourism in Sa Pa. In 2014, there were 826,000 visitors to Sa Pa and this figure nearly tripled with 2.5 million visitors in 2017. After the inauguration of the spiritual architectural complex on top of Mount Fansipan, the number of visitors to Sa Pa increased sharply from 2.4 million in 2018 to 3.2 million in 2019.
Even when tourism is in a 'frozen' period during the COVID-19 pandemic, Sun World Fansipan Legend is still a safe destination for visitors with attractive stimulus programs and unique new tourism products. The resort has become one of the fastest recovering destinations when the pandemic is under control.
All of the above proved the attraction and the methodical provision of tourism services of Sun World Fansipan Legend. Being named as "Vietnam’s Leading Tourist Attraction" by WTA for the second time is a worthy reward for the resort on the roof of Indochina and its whole-hearted tourism service provision. Once again, Sun World Fansipan Legend proudly brings Sa Pa and Lao Cai to new positions on the regional and international tourist map.
