Water Puppet Show & Dinner On Cruise in Ho Chi Minh City - 1 Day


Highlights: One hour enjoys traditional puppetry art, 2 hours scenic cruise along the Sai Gon River in a traditional junk & Vietnamese Dinner. Water puppet – a part of Vietnamese cultural Heritage, watching the Vietnamese Water Puppet is also the best way to discover the history & traditional cultural life of Vietnamese people.



At 18:00 we’ll pick up at your hotel, and then head to the Water Puppet Theater. There you’ll enjoy a truly wonderful puppet show that is performed in a pool of water with the water surface serving as the stage! The show’s musical background is provided by a contemporary orchestra accompanied by solo vocalist and professional musician instruments.

Watching the show, you will learn more about the Vietnamese rural folklore and various rural concepts and superstitions. Many of these programs, especially those involving the tales of day-to-day living, often have a trick ending with a humorous twist …

Aftershow, we’ll take you around the city by “Xich Lo” – was the most popular transportation means in Vietnam in the past, but is now a representation of the Vietnamese way of life. Then, 19:30 we’ll board a Riverboat and have dinner as we cruise along the Saigon River … with the ambiance provided by Saigon’s nighttime skyline … and traditional music taking us back thousands of years …

Get back to the hotel about 21:30, the tour ends.
