Watch the sun set over the mountains from the highest point in Sapa Town. Incredible views of Mt. Fansipan (the highest peak in Vietnam), and the city below.

This relatively short hike up Ham Rong starts from the city center. You'll have to pay about 70,000 VND ($3.25) for access to the mountain park, but it's worth doing it once while you're in Sapa. The path winds past many shops and park-like areas. It feels a bit manufactured, almost like Disneyland, but that detracts little from the beauty of the area.

Take some time to explore around the park but make sure you make it to the overlook in time for sunset. The sun sets over the mountain range across the valley, and the fading light paints the town and surrounding area with an array of color.
