Dinner Cruise Tour with Rickshaw riding & Water Puppet Show

Excursion in Ho Chi Minh

Tour Price : $30-35 Duration : 4 hours Languages: English

Enjoy a 1 hour traditional puppetry art show - a very special moment for grownups and children alike. Take a ride on a cyclo for an adventure winding through the sights, sounds & smells of this historic metropolis - the ideal way to experience the city at night.

Unforgettable 2 hour scenic cruise along the Saigon River in a traditional junk & Vietnamese / Western dinner.

18.00: Pick up at your hotel to start the trip and transfer to Water Puppet Theater by car.
18.30: 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 Northern 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.
19.15: Continue to the harbor by Cyclo for a dinner cruise, enjoy the city lights & panoramic views of HCM city.
