Water Puppet Show and Old Quarter Walking Tour of Hanoi
What to Expect
You'll fall in love with these bold, beautiful, cute and endearing puppets from yesteryear floating cheerfully along the water in their Sunday best attire. A tour representative will deliver your Water Puppet Show ticket to your hotel, and provide you with an information sheet. Forty puppets star in the show representing the bygone agricultural era, including 14 original ones from the ancient Vietnamese Puppetry. Your ticket comes with a brief guided orientation prior to taking your seat. The show also involves the participation of many eminent and excellent artists of the Water Puppet Theater.
Conveniently, your ticket allows you to skip the long public lines. Pre-booked tickets help you to have the best seats in advance.
Afterwards, you'll follow a 1-hour walking tour of Hanoi’s Old Quarter. Skip the ticket lines with your pre-booked admission, then meet your professional guide after the show for a stroll through ''36 Old Streets'', aka the Old Quarter. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of local life with informative commentary about its traditional craft guilds. You need to walk, taste, smell and hear the sounds of Hanoi to embrace it fully.
Plus, the expert tour guide will show you how the Old Quarter of Hanoi was formed. The contrast of the wet rice agricultural civilization in the show and modern life of Hanoi people will help increase your understanding about Vietnam.
