Vietnam has a tropical monsoon climate so snowfall is always a rare phenomenon. However, there is a paradise located in the northwest mountains which is usually covered with the white color of snow when December comes. It is this distinctive characteristic that makes a lot of tourists curious to admire its miraculous beauty in Sapa tours. Also, there are some other reasons to prove that Sapa is worth visiting in December, even without tour guides. Let’s discover them right now!
1/ You can feel as if being in Europe
Visiting Sapa in December, you will really enjoy the same atmosphere as in Europe without leaving Vietnam. At that time, the temperature is severely below 0 degrees Celsius thus it snows heavily in a continuous way, making Sapa seem to be all filled with the snow. Therefore, if you have desired to play in the snow for a long time, it’s time for you to realize this dream. Certainly, it will be such a wonderful memory that you can not forget in your life. Actually, you do not need a tour guide to introduce it to you, right?
The constantly severe snowfalls in Sapa in December also make the peak of Ham Rong Mountain, Fansipan Mountain or Muong Hoa Valley full of white snow. There are no longer a wide range of green terraced rice fields or golden terraced rice fields at harvest time and no longer a variety of fruits and forest flowers in the blooming season. All are completely immersed in the snow with a marvelous beauty. In particular, one of the most remarkable images in Sapa in December is the stilted house of ethnic people. Its roof is entirely covered with white snow so you will be sometimes confused whether it is a house or not. Therefore, this is considered to be a highlight of your Sapa tours in December.
3/ Welcoming Christmas in Sapa is very appropriate
Christmas is a great occasion in December. It is a sacred moment greeted by the whole world. Usually, it reminds us of winter and snow. Unfortunately, Christmas in Vietnam is always crowded and cozy but not snowy because a large number of people have a habit of gathering together in some big cities for many years. So why don’t you make difference? It is to go to Sapa to enjoy the winter atmosphere and welcome Christmas Eve while admiring the snow falls on the roof of Stone Church. Absolutely, it will give you a uniquely meaningful Christmas Eve, especially with your family and friends.
4/ Joining the winter festival in Sapa is very funny
The winter festival in Sapa usually takes place from early November to early January. If you travel to Sapa in December, you will have a chance to participate in this special festival. More specifically, you will play some games in the snow and related to snow.
