Tour Itinerary

We will begin our evening with a wonderful dinner at a lovely local restaurant. After dinner, we will make our way to the theater to enjoy the Water Puppet Show. Puppets are made from light timbers, carved, polished and decorated with different colours to demonstrate the clear personalities of each character. Water puppetry is a unique Vietnamese art form performed in a large pool using the water as a stage. The artisans inside the cabin control puppets. They perform each pole, rope,… puppets with the system of ropes arranged outside or under the water. The stage is decorated with flags, fans, parasols. It is considered as one of the most traditional and important parts of Vietnamese culture. You will also enjoy the Vietnamese orchestra, which provides the background music for the show. The orchestra is manned by an array of talented singers accompanied by professional musicians performing with traditional musical instruments. The show is a great way to learn more about the Vietnamese rural life and folklore. The programs performed, especially those involving tales of day-to-day living, often have humorous plot twists for you to enjoy.

We were unable to get booked in to dinner but decided to see the show. Although it was all in Vietnamese (which we were aware of) it was very easy to understand the story. It was very funny at times and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The theatre is a little tired but it really didn't matter (lady in front fell through her seat.....so glad it wasn't me). This is very unique and definitely worth a visit. Less
