Know More about this tour

This evening, your guide will pick you up from your hotel.

First stop, enjoy a leisurely ride on cyclos through the busy street of Saigon in the late evening, getting yourself into the Saigon atmosphere.

Next, enjoy the unique art of 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. A traditional Vietnamese orchestra provides background music accompaniment. Singers with origin in north Vietnam sing songs which tell the story being acted out by the puppets (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.

Then, continue to the harbor by cyclos for a dinner cruise, enjoy the city lights and panoramic views of Ho Chi Minh City . Enjoy sumptuous Vietnamese cuisine on this magical dinner cruise aboard a traditional-style Dragon Boat. The trip ends back at your hotel around 9:30pm.
