We walked 20 minutes to the Sa Pa market. Masses of stalls selling traditional costumes and embroidered items. Very few shoppers and many women in traditional dress, many working sewing machines. A 100 m walk down one of the streets in the town is more...More

Don't bother going. It's the worst market we've seen in Vietnam. No atmosphere whatsoever. Inside the market hall most stalls were closed and the few that were open were selling the generic Chinese plastic toys and souvenirs. Outside are few people selling meat and veggies...More

Nothing really fantastic about the market. Most of the stalls are selling the same stuff. If you go up to the 2nd floor, will see a group of H'mong ladies sewing and selling their ethnic fabrics products.

Not worth the visit and avoid at all cost! - Location is far away from city centre. - Not authentic - Overpriced factory made apparels/souvenirs (e.g. 300,000 vnd for a pair of poor quality made rubber slippers) - Beware when using the WC/toilet. No signs...More
