Over 300,000 rose plants of over 150 most popular varieties from across Vietnam (Sapa, Hai Phong, Son La, Hue, etc.) and international favorites can be spotted in the area, contributing to the uniqueness and diversity of the valley.

Possibly the most impressive highlight is the vivid carpets of red climbing roses that have contributed to creating the Sapa brand.

Director of Sun World Fansipan Legend, Nguyen Xuan Chien, said that the rose valley in Fansipan is expected to contribute a new unique angle to Sapa, attracting more visitors to “the city in the clouds’, especially in the context of Vietnamese tourism making its best efforts to quickly recover after Covid-19 epidemic.
