Best Of “Live” Roaming Sapa, Vietnam’s Hill Tribe Morning Market

Sapa, Vietnam is one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in Vietnam. At the time of this original live broadcast guesthouses and hotels were being constructed in a frenzy to accommodate the demand, especially from Vietnamese for lodgings. 

Sapa, with an elevation of 1500 meters has been a cool retreat from the heat and humidity of Hanoi and the surrounding area since the early 1900’s.

Military and missionaries arrived in the late 1800’s then the first French civilian took permanent residence in 1909.

Inhabitants of the Sapa region date back hundreds of years with little known of the first civilization other than hundreds of petroglyphs they left behind. Then came the hill tribes, Hmong, ZDao, and others.

Today those hill tribes are still seen everywhere around Sapa dressed in their traditional clothing.
