Ho Chi Minh - Cu Chi Tunnels
Half day - Moderate walking - Historical Interest
Hanoi - Water Puppet Show
The puppets are made out of wood and then lacquered; they often weigh up to 15kg. The shows are performed in a waist-deep pool. A large rod supports the puppet under the water and is used by the puppeteers, who are normally hidden behind a screen, to control them. Thus the puppets appear to be moving over the water. When the rice fields would flood, the villagers would entertain each other using this form of puppet play.
The theme of the shows are rural and have strong reference to Vietnamese folklore. They tell of day-to-day living in rural Vietnam, stories of the harvest, fishing and festivals.
Unmissable – Minimal walking – approx 45 mins 1 hour show
Luang Prabang - Kuang Si Waterfalls
Must see - Minimal walking - Half day
