DescriptionYour tour will begin at 5:30PM, at which point you will be picked up from your hotel to begin your trip. From there you will enjoy the unique art of a water-puppet show, a traditional art form closely connected with the long-standing spiritual life of the Vietnamese people. It is performed in a pool of water, with the water surface acting as the stage. The puppeteers will stand behind a screen and control the puppets using long bamboo rods and string mechanisms which are hidden beneath the water surface. A traditional Vietnamese orchestra will provides background music accompaniment, and singers with origins in north Vietnam will sing songs which tell the story being acted out by the puppets. Although the authentic shows are exclusively in Vietnamese, the tales depict rural life in villages and are easy to understand. The shows typically last for one hour and offer a colorful way to enjoy an ancient tradition. At 7:15PM you will continue to the harbor by pedicab for a dinner cruise, which will allow you to enjoy the city lights and panoramic views of Ho Chi Minh city. You'll enjoy sumptuous Vietnamese cuisine throughout a magical dinner as you cruise aboard a traditional boat, before your tour concludes at 9:30PM.
