This monument is in the town centre opposite the Stone Church. There is a patch of green with seats, landscape gardens and open space. The inscription is in Vietnamese so the meaning was lost to us.

As locating very close to the Sapa Holy Rosary Church Or the Stone Church you can see both at almost the same time. The monument is nice looking one.

The monument is simple enough, but what will distract from the experience is the throng of street vendors following you around to sell their wares (a problem throughout the entire town) Not really worth it to visit the monument if - like me - you...More

You are unlikely to miss this monument when in Sapa but then again you are also likely not to particularly remember it. It is hardly attractive although I acknowledge that perhaps there is a meaning in it that is simply lost on me. If nothing...More

It's not something that you'd plan your day around going to see. However if you're around Sapa and near the square its a nice monument to have a look at.
