In the late 1880's the French debarked in highland Tonkin and from then on Sa Pa, or Chapa as the French called it, began to appear on the national mapIn the beginning Sapa was visited by military parties as well as missionaries. The French military Tonkin's ‘pacification' operation resulted in an agreement that the Sa Pa region was placed under French authority in 1896. Later on the entire Lào Cai region came under direct colonial French military administration. The sensitive northern frontier was thereby considered relatively controlled. In the following years French civilian inhabitants followed, attracted by the continental climate.
At the end of the Second World War a long period of hostilities began lasting up til 1954. During that time nearly all of the 200 or so colonial buildings in or around Sa Pa were destroyed. Almost all Vietnamese people fled and the former town entered a prolonged sleep.
In the beginning of the 1960s the New Economic Zones migration scheme set up by the new Socialist regime stimulated inhabitants from the Vietnamese lowlands to migrate to the region.
In 1979 there was a short occupation of the northern border region by military troops from China that had little impact on Sa Pa town.
In 1993 the decision was made to open the door fully to international tourism. Sapa has turned in to a very popular tourist destination as well for Vietnamese people as international tourists.
Fansipan, 3143 meters of altitude, is the highest peak in the country.
