SAPA (VNS) — The northern town of Sa Pa in Lao Cai Provincehas been selected by the UK's famous tourism website Rough Guides as one of the top nine global tourist attractions in 2014.
The website also suggested tourists reach the peak of Fansipan Mountain (3,143m) by using the cable car instead of hiking all day.
"This will be the world's longest and highest cable car, no less, running up from sleepy Sa Pa Town in Lao Cai province to Indochina 's rooftop," it said.
Also on the list were Shanghai Tower (China), Lincoln Castle and Dreamland (UK), the Whitney Museum of American Art ( US), Ice Caves (Iceland), Lost and Found Festival (Malta), Treetop Crazy Rider ( Australia), and Musee des Confluences (France). — VNS
