Lao Cai tourism information[edit] Due to 25 minorities living together in this land, Lao Cai becomes a land with the richness of culture, history, tradition and cultural heritage. The Vietnamese in Lao Cai have become very wealthy because of trade with their close neighbor, China. The sudden increase in wealth paved the way for many to buy cars. To own a car in Vietnam means one is very wealthy. However, their attitude and the way they drive is worse than an animal. I have seen monkeys with more awareness. They do not care about people on motorcycles. Their motto is "Get out of the way, or I will run you over." Certainly explains why there aren't many westerners or conscious minded beings living there. Since 2017 there has been an influx of language schools, which employs other like minded Asians called Filipinos, who speak an unique dialect of English, but the Vietnamese need English to compete with the Chinese. Particularly, the proportion of the number of Vietnamese people living there reached the top in the 1960s because of the settler movements that officer was mobilized from Hai Phong city, Phu Tho province, Thai Binh province, Ha Nam province to Lao Cai. Among the ethnic minorities, the H’Mong, the Tay, the Dao, the Day, the Hoa account for a significant proportion. The diversity of their life has created the distinctive identity of Lao Cai. In order to promote this strength, the authorities of Phu Tho, Yen Bai, Lao Cai province jointly conduct to develop tourism of the source. It draws te attention of tourists successfully. Lao Cai is developing province located in mountainous area so it still retains the clean environment and the diversity of landscapes. It will play an important role to generate an ideal tourist destination for the domestic and foreign tourists. Sapa resort is one of 21 national tourist zones of Vietnam. Sapa is located at an altitude of 1200–1800 meters on average, year-round cool weather. It owns many landscapes, rocky woods, waterfalls and is a place of gathering for many traditional cultural activities of ethnic minorities as highland markets, Sapa love market. Hoang Lien Son range covers Fansipan peak considered as a “roof” of Vietnam
Vietnam
and Hoang Lien Son Nature Reserve attracting many scientists and tourists. Lao Cai possesses many historical sites, natural caves and agro-ecological areas with specialties such as Bac Ha plum, temperate vegetables, precious medicinal plants, trout, sturgeon, etc. Pair of Lao Cai international border gate (Vietnam) - Hekou international border gate of Yunnan
Yunnan
(China) separated through Nam Thi river is also an interesting tourist destination.[9] References[edit]
