There used to be a
love market in town on Saturday night until late 1990s where tribal teenagers from villages near and far trek into town to meet, sing, impress, entertain each other and find a mate. It's all very coy, but unlike many of the more remote love markets in the region, it has become very commercial in recent years, These days there are more camera-toting tourists than love-sick Montagnards. Since more and more tourists
travel to Sapa for witnessing the love market, it's not in session as it was once.
