In order to record the life of minority ethnic people in Sa Pa, as well as the town transformation, under the influence of the new government development plan. Moreover, Kinh Wave is Danny’s interpretation and documentation of current Vietnam’s evolution era, in this particular case of Sa Pa when recently, the wave of Kinh (Vietnamese) immigrants together with our business plans have started engulfing.

Sa Pa town (Lao Cai province) is one of Vietnam’s most popular tourist destinations. Its majority inhabitants are from ethnic groups such as Hmong, Red Yao, Tay, Giay, Xa Pho and the Kinh.

In 2014, Hanoi to Lao Cai highway opened; Sa Pa tourism and economy have been developing dramatically since then. According to 2015 statistic, the number of tourists in the first quarter rose to 144.3% compared to the same period of 2014.
