At 18:00, we will pick you up from your centrally located hotel in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City and begin the trip.
At 18:30, we will take you to enjoy a unique art form called the water puppet show. This traditional performance is closely connected with the spiritual life of the Vietnamese people and is performed in a pool of water. Puppeteers control the puppets using long bamboo rods and string mechanisms hidden beneath the water surface, while a traditional Vietnamese orchestra provides accompanying background music. Although the show is exclusively in Vietnamese, the tales depicted are easy to understand and offer a colorful way to enjoy an ancient tradition. The show typically lasts for one hour.
At 19:15, we will take you to experience Saigon’s nightlife and reach the harbor for a dinner cruise on the river. You will observe the beautiful scenery of the city while enjoying Vietnamese cuisine on a traditional-style boat.
At 21:30, we will drop you off at your hotel doorsteps and the tour will end.
