Come see a traditional Vietnamese folklore puppet show, enjoy the accompanying orchestral music, and the experience Saigon by night from the river on a dinner cruise. This is the perfect evening activity!
The tour begins in the early evening with a cyclo trip from our office to the water-puppet theatre. Water-puppetry is an ancient puppet tradition and an imporant part of Vietmanese culture. In water-puppetry, puppets are played on the surface of a pool of water, while a Vietnamese orchestra of professional musicians accompanied by an array of talented singers provide background music for the performance. Enjoy watching the puppet show and learning more about Vietnamese rural life and folklore. Many of the programs, especially those involving the tales of day-to-day living, often have a humorous twist.
After the show, we'll take you to Saigon river to board a junk for a cruise. Take the time here to admire the lights of Saigon city from the river. Dinner will be served on the cruise, which you can enjoy while listening to our selection of realxing music.
The tour ends around 9.30pm, when we'll return you to your hotel.
