Saigon evening tour (cyclo, puppet show, dinner cruise)

18.00 Pick up at your hotel to start the trip (free pickup at hotels located in the downtown of District 1 only, other area surcharge 10USD/pax).

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 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.

19.15 Continue to the harbor by cyclo for a dinner cruise, enjoy the city lights & panoramic views of HCM city. Enjoy scrumptious Vietnamese cuisine on this magical dinner cruise aboard a traditional-style Dragon Boat End the trip at 21.30.

The show was entertaining and creative. I thanks all the entertainers esp to those playing the puppets as they need to be in the water for an hour. I guess the show will be informative if I could understand the language. If they would like the foreigners to understand the dialog and at the same time they want to retain the originality of the show, perhaps they should consider adding a screen on top or below the stage to display the subtitle. Please come early or atleast on time so that you wont be disrupting other audiences

A charming hour of cute puppets telling little stories, all the while splashing through water. Even without translation, I followed the stories. The puppeteers are very talented, even making the puppets show emotion. A grand finale of a fire-breathing dragon was a surprise.
