The diversity of natural landscape

In some certain travel destinations, tourist can only see the same kind of landscape everywhere they go. However, Sapa offers tourists a chance to contemplate the diversity of natural exoticness. The small town nestles on the mountain range of Hoang Lien Son; with Fansipan peak known as "the roof of Indochina" spreading extremely spectacular sceneries. Here and there are terraced paddies with the shining yellow colour of harvesting season, or looking like a big mirror made of pouring water. In somewhere else, houses on stilts of ethnic people evoke a peaceful sense all over the wild ambience. All those blessings create a truly vivid picture.
