We will take you on a trip by cyclo to experience Ho Chi Minh City's attractions. Then, you can 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 being the stage. The puppeteers stand behind a screen and control the puppets using long bamboo rods and string mechanisms hidden beneath the water surface. A traditional Vietnamese orchestra provides accompanying background music. Singers originating from north Vietnam sing songs which tell the story being acted out by the puppets which are carved out of wood. 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. You will be taken to experience Saigon’s nightlife and reach the harbor for a dinner on cruise on the river. Relax and observe the beautiful scenery of the city while enjoying Vietnamese cuisine on a traditional-style boat.
