Far from Saigon

Although they are both part of the same country, Saigon and Sapa could not be further apart, geographically, climatically or culturally. While Saigon is situated far to the South in the steamy Mekong Delta as it flows into the South China Sea, Sapa is about as far north as you can get without being in China. While Saigon is at sea level, Sapa sits at 9,500 feet and while Saigon marks the end of the Mekong River, Sapa marks the end of the Himalayan region.
