"This is truly a great honour that acknowledges the huge efforts we have made to bring a truly world-class tourism product to Sa Pa," said Nguyen Xuan Chien - Director of Sun World Fansipan Legend. "This award will also spur us on to ensure Sun World Fansipan Legend exceeds expectations as the country's leading tourism attraction."

Developed by Sun Group, Sun World Fansipan Legend first opened its doors in 2016, transforming Sa Pa in a just a few years from a sleepy backwater into one of Vietnam's premier destinations.


Visitors to Sun World Fansipan Legend will have many unique vantage points to admire the awe-inspiring beauty of the northwest -- especially the "rooftop of Indochina", Mount Fansipan, and the Muong Hoa Valley.

Within the complex, visitors can also immerse themselves in the northwestern mountainous culture by attending traditional festivals and discovering all about the many hill tribes who have lived around the "City in the clouds" for many centuries.

Departing from Sapa, the Muong Hoa funicular connects the town with the Fansipan cable car station. The short but wonderful funicular ride will thrill people of all ages as it trundles through mysterious tunnels, crosses a viaduct and offers passengers wide-views of the beautiful natural landscapes and terraced rice fields at an altitude of 1,600 meters.

As they ride in the Sun World Fansipan Legend Cable Car System, passengers will have breathtaking views of the mountain scenery. When they reach the top of Fansipan, at a height of 3,143m, they can visit a complex of spiritual buildings and shrines that showcase the ancient beauty of Vietnamese architecture as well as the country's spiritual beliefs.

Having Sun World Fansipan Legend recognized as "Vietnam's Leading Tourist Attraction 2019" is certainly a huge acknowledgement of the tireless efforts made by Sun Group to develop and deliver truly world-class tourism products and high-grade, transformative projects that have made an immense contribution in promoting Vietnam as a travel destination all around the world.
