Chestnuts are a commodity many tourists choose to buy as gifts.

A motorbike taxi driver on Thach Son Street said there are many people here at night these days because of the nice weather.

Mai Trinh, a visitor from Ho Chi Minh City, said: “Before I came, I did not think Sa Pa would be so bustling. In fact, the streets were very crowded. I really like the atmosphere here because it’s as cool as Da Lat. However, I find the traffic still a bit messy. There is some noise and light pollution.”

Hue, a barbeque shop owner on Ngu Chi Son Street, said: “There are quite a lot of customers this weekend, I sold nearly twice the amount of normal days. In the past weeks, it was raining so there were not many customers coming here.”
