Fansipan Mountain Reviews & Ratings
Wow! Really spiritual experience. The culturally interesting gift shops were a particular highlight. Definitely don’t spend your money elsewhere on less authentic and worthwhile experiences!
Worth every cent. Fansipan is one of the most magnificent attraction Vietnam has to offer. The place is ridiculously beautiful. The giant Buddha statue is detailed and beautiful.
A very cold whether condition... a great experience in one of highest mountain in Vietnam 🇻🇳. If you go there please take your winter suits and get ready for raining, windy 🌬 weather conditions too!!!!
Fansipan is too good to merit 5 stars. From the town of Sapa, you go to Sapa station, and take a tram uphill. There you change to a cable car, known for holding 2 Guinness World Records. Uphill you can either take another tram or climb the stairs directly. The air is rather thin and it may be cold at autumn. Upon arriving at the summit you see several triangles written "Fansipan 3143m", and the scenery is dramatic. Downstairs stands the highest Buddha statue in the world, at 3079m. The cable car ride is so sweet - perfect for a honeymoon 😍
It is the best place to travel on a safari. Cable cars will be a good experience. It is only expensive. It is about thirty dollars round trip. But you can't feel it. It is said to be the best season in July and August.
