In order to support travellers, the locality is rushing to prepare for the influx of tourists.
Accordingly, the municipal Youth Union has provided tour guide training courses for about 250 union members aiming to provide information and instructions to tourists.
The district plans to open three information booths and hotlines in 35 public locations.
Moreover, municipal authorities have asked 350 hotels, restaurants and bars in the locality to commit to not raise their prices on the occasion.
There are nearly 200 hotels with 5,000 rooms and more than 100 homestays in Sapa, according to the municipal Cultural and Information Office.
