Translated by Bing
There are rumors, dating Sapa on May 1 feels like immersing yourself in a romantic love story. Indeed, Sapa in the first months of the year was cold enough for the hug to be sweeter, the fragrant grilled forest meat lingered with footsteps, the aroma of coffee called Pudong to wake up, the love of Sapa night was dissolved.

Sapa weather March 1

In the first months of the year, Sapa is very cold. In the first half of the month, the temperature is still swinging at 10-18 degrees. At the end of the month, frost is possible with temperatures of only 5-10 degrees. Fansipan Peak can snow.

It was cold, but during the day it was warm and dry. Sapa this season has relatively little rain, extremely convenient for you to go out and take photos.

In the evening, Sapa fog covered the way. Heavy dew sometimes thought of fog rain. The cold slipped into the neck, into the sleeves, only making the lovers walking along the street almost rub and hold hands more tightly and immerse themselves in romance together.

The two most chosen means of transportation by those with 1st month Sapa travel experience are motorbikes or cars.

Surfing vivu motorbikes to explore O Quy Ho, or surfing the village is one of the unforgettable experiences. Cold, but free to immerse yourself in heaven and earth, stop anywhere, check in and own beautiful photos without dead corners.

Motorbike rental cost: 100,000 VND – 160,000 / day for digital cars, gas cars and 200,000 – 300,000 VND / day for scooters. If you are afraid of the cold and afraid of riding a motorbike, you can rent a taxi or rent a self-driving car. The cost of renting a self-driving car is about 1,000,000 VND/day with an additional deposit. January 1 is foggy and may have frost that makes the roads slippery, if you are not confident in the steering wheel, you should take a taxi or rent a car with a driver.

Trekking is also an interesting experience for those who want to explore the pristine destinations in Sapa. But make sure you are in good health to catch up on a long day trekking mountains and villages.

Tourist attractions


January 1 is one of the most beautiful "cloud hunting" times of the year on Fan Peak. The thick and porous coils of clouds, when floating like a giant blanket, when billowing like a stream of clouds flowing down the world, are more beautiful than any rumor anyone wants to witness once.

Fansipan Peak can also surprise you with a romantic snow shower. However, Fansipan January 1 is also prone to frost, strong winds, fog rain and very low temperatures. Experience traveling to Sapa in 1st month is to always watch the weather forecast carefully before choosing a date to go to Fansipan!

Oolong tea plantation with cherry apricots

On the way from Sapa to O Quy Ho pass, you will encounter green oolong tea hills with cherry blossom paths spread with brilliant pink.
