Sapa is among the highest places in Vietnam and among the most recent additions to the Vietnam tourist trail. Sapa’s commercialization began in earnest in the early part of the 2000s, according to Footprint Vietnam, a Vietnam travel and tour company. Compared to other small-town tourist stops — most notably Hoi An on the Central Coast — Sapa is still relatively undeveloped and rough around the edges, which is particularly refreshing when travelling in Vietnam.
