VietNamNet Bridge – The reputed travel magazine Lonely Planet has recommended ten best tourist sites for walkers, including Sapa town in Vietnam’s northern mountain province of Lao Cai.

The information was announced by Dr. Tran Huu Son, Vice Chair of the Vietnam Folk Art and Literature Association, Director of Lao Cai Province Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism on May 4.

 

The ten best sites for walking in the world chosen by the Lonely Planet include: Grand Canyon (USA), Aoraki or Mount Coock (New Zealand), Lake District (UK), Torres del Paine (Chile), Lauterbrunnen (Switzerland), Brecon Beacons (Wales), Kakadu National Park (Australia), Taman Negara National Park (Malaysia), Dartmoor National Park (UK) and Sapa (Vietnam).

 

The Lonely Planet introduces Sapa as follows: “The Queen of the Mountains, Sapa sits regally overlooking a beautiful valley, lofty mountains towering over the town on all sides. Welcome to the destination in northwest Vietnam, gateway to another world of mysterious minority cultures and luscious landscapes. The spectacular scenery that surrounds Sapa includes cascading rice terraces that spill down the mountains like a patchwork quilt. The mountains are often shrouded in mist that rolls back and forth along the peaks, offering tantalizing glimpses of what lies in wait on a clear day”.

 

In 2009, readers of the Travel and Leisure magazine (USA) polled Sapa’s terraced field as one of the most grandiose terraced fields in Asia and the world. Sapa’s Fansipan Mount was among candidates for the vote of seven new world natural wonders.
