Water Puppets Performance, Hanoi
Vietnam, Hanoi and The North

Info : Water Puppets Performance

This evening tour begins with a ‘cyclo’ to the theatre where the ancient Vietnamese art form of water puppetry is enacted. The unique tradition dates back to the 11th century originating in the villages of the north and is still celebrated as an art today.

The ‘stage’ is a pool of water in which the hidden puppeteer must stand (waist deep!) to skilfully manoeuvre dancing puppets attached to bamboo poles on its surface.

Each short skit in the performance relates to the daily life of the people and is accompanied by music from a traditional Vietnamese Orchestra.

After the performance we can arrange a transfer to a local restaurant for dinner or if you would prefer to relax or explore you can make your own arrangements for the rest of the evening. 

Guest Comments for Water Puppets Performance

Water puppets show was very good and entertaining, but as it was not in English one hour was enough!

Customer Feedback
The highlight of the trip for us was the Bassac cruise on the Mekong Delta, met some lovely people, ate wonderful food, had a fascinating insight into life on and around the river by the Bassac guide Anh Tou.
