The Northwestern Food and Culture Festival is taking place from July 22 to August 12 at the Sun World Fansipan Legend tourist site in Sapa, honoring the traditional culture of the area and creating a new and unique entertainment destination for visitors during the summer of 2018.

Visitors have the chance to taste specialties of the northwestern region, such as “thang co” (a dish made from horse meat and its organs), Sapa-style sausage, grilled pork, and smoked buffalo, among others. They can also take part in cooking “banh chung” (a traditional cake) and grinding “banh giay” (glutinous rice cake) - a custom of the local ethnic H’mong people during their New Year Festival.

There is also a liquor making space, where visitors can learn about and participate in the traditional liquor making of different groups in the northwest and taste dozens of different types.

Agricultural products and brocade are also on display and sale.

A typical wedding ceremony of the Red Dao people, with colorful dress, and food and customs, is recreated from 9.30am to 11.30am every Saturday and Sunday during the festival.

A series of music and dance performances, folk games and lucky draw bring more festivity.

Some 1.9 km southwest of famous Sapa, Sun World Fansipan Legend is a resort complex consisting of tourism programs, cultural works, cable cars, entertainment services, and high-quality hotels.

Its highlight is the cable car to the “Roof of Indochina”, Mt. Fansipan. At 6292.5 meters long and a height difference of 1,410 meters between its lower and upper stations, it holds the world record for the longest non-stop three-rope cable car and the greatest elevation difference by a non-stop three-rope cable car.

The cable car can carry an impressive 2,000 guests per hour and allows everyone, including those unable to trek, to stand atop Mt. Fansipan, 3,143 meters above sea level, and marvel at breath-taking views of the Hoang Lien Son Mountain Range, unspoiled forests, and Muong Hoa Valley.
