Ho Chi Minh City: Water Puppet Show and Dinner Cruise

Benefit from pick-up at your hotel if located in District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City, and then make your way to the Water Puppet Theater by traditional cyclo (bicycle taxi).

Immerse yourself in a traditional art form closely connected with the spiritual life of the Vietnamese people. Be amazed by the skillful puppeteers who stand behind a screen and control puppets using long bamboo rods and string mechanisms hidden beneath the surface of the pool of water. Be mesmerized as the pool becomes the stage!

Hear traditional music from north Vietnam played by the orchestra and listen to songs that tell the story being performed. Although the shows are exclusively in Vietnamese, the tales depict rural life in villages and are easy to understand. Then, experience the buzzing nightlife on a dinner cruise aboard a traditional-style boat.

Water puppet show was something new, but the dinner cruise was poor.

楽しかった~!
シクロに乗って、水上人形劇場まで送迎してくれました。シクロは、視線が高くなるため、眺めがよく、道路の真ん中を横切るなど、ドキドキしながらも楽しかった。 人形劇の座席は最前列の真ん中を手配してもらえていたので、とても良かった。 そのあとのディナークルーズも、生バンドや伝統舞踊の披露があるなど、盛りだくさんのツアーでした。 短時間で、いろいろ堪能できました。

Excellent value for money
I don't have anything negative to say about this tour. Given the price you pay you get so much out of it. The tour guide was lovely and we enjoyed every part. The views from the boat during the dinner cruise were beautiful.

Unique experience with mixed feelings
We missed the first third of the show 'cause of traffic. Sat in the last row. Pick up at the hotel was generally late. The show is lovely. Afterwords stressy to catch the rikshas, no time for souvenir. The cruise is ok. Nothing to see, the music show is oversounded by russian tourists. Sad. All in all the only reason to make it, that it's difficoult to book it out of package. Shame for the organisation for an otherwise good programm

Good but with a bit hiccups
Good but have to change the time for water puppet show and we didn't get our expected seats (not too behind and together as family). a bit let down on that part. the cyclo guys were a bit pushy for tips as well.

Puppet show was nice to look at but all in Vietnamese made it hard to follow, but so called dinner cruise was disgusting, not recommended at all. Food terrible could not eat it. Felt very sorry for the guide, Yen, he tried to help, but there was no helping this useless mob. If you see boat called King Cruise, RUN

Greatly organized, great Guide
The guide Tahnh did organize everything very well. The water puppet show is really charming and a must-see. After the show which lasted about 45 minutes, we mqde a cyclo tour to the harbour, where we had a dinner cruise and a several course meal accompanied by song and dance. The food was good, the ship and the staff friendly. The cruise lasted about 1 1/2 hours, but you do not go too far from the harbour. You get a nice sight of the skyline though. Pick up and transfers were punctual and fine. Absolutely recommended.

water puppet theatre is a rarity, seen only in Hanoi and Saigon
This is not a Kids’ show. A professional folk music orchestra characterises the performance given by the young artists.

Interesting
This was ...interesting. lol. Be sure to visit the bathroom before hand hahah ! Strange, but traditional experience. Our guide wasn't super helpful.. to be honest. She just tossed us from transpiration, to seating etc. But some chatting and history would have been nice with our payment of tour. Overall good night spent in Saigon though!!

Poor, dinner cruise very disappointing!
Cyclo ride was fun, water puppet show was okay, not the best one I've seen. The dinner cruise was very disappointing, the drinks waiter tried to serve us the wrong cocktail, even bringing the ingredients to the table, which were completely different to the ones listed. We asked him to take them back & bring us tonic water instead. The food was very basic. Not worth the $$. Would of better off booking just a cruise with one of the other companies. Disappointing because it was a birthday dinner for our daughter.
