Kim Travel: 36 Bui Vien Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh city.
Your tour will begin at 5:30PM, at which point you will be picked up from your hotel to begin your trip. From there you will 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 acting as the stage.
The puppeteers will stand behind a screen and control the puppets using long bamboo rods and string mechanisms which are hidden beneath the water surface. A traditional Vietnamese orchestra will provides background music accompaniment, and singers with origins in north Vietnam will sing songs which tell the story being acted out by the puppets.
The water puppet show was more exciting and fun than I expected! The movement of cyclo was also fun. The cruise was delicious though the amount of rice was large. The night view was also beautiful. The tour was fun, but the guide was so kind to us who can’t speak English and it was a good night. Thank you very much.
