Sapa is an old mountain station built in 1922 in a beautiful valley (1600 m above sea level) near the border with China. The area is spectacular, but get there from Hanoi has never been particularly easy because some bad roads. Other problems that have prevented Sapa to become a resort from glossy magazine were War Worldwide, the guerrilla war against the French, the war with America and  economic crisis that hit Vietnam in the '80s. The old hotels built by the French were left to fall into disrepair and the village was
forgotten by almost everyone. Vietnamese included. Then, Sapa was
suddenly rediscovered. Not only foreign tourists, but also by
Vietnamese citizens and even some Chinese who now cross the border at
Cao Lai. Sapa would be nothing without the Hmong and the Dzao, ethnic groups the largest and most picturesque in the region. They live in almost all conditions extremly poverty.
