Abstract: Natural amenities and tourism were considered to be important factors for the establishment of hill stations in Southern countries in Asia during the colonial time as they were only served for colonial bureaucrats and their families. After around 100 years of development, hill stations are now the most popular mountain resorts in some South and South-East Asia countries. The paper studies the relation between tourism in hill station and amenity migration - a social phenomena of post industrialization and examines whether tourism and amenity migration can bring the revitalization for the regional and rural areas where hill stations belong. Field research was conducted in Sapa hill station in the Northern part of Vietnam and the research is mainly focused on domestic amenity tourists.
