Departure Time

7:00 AM
Start with pickup at your Ho Chi Minh City port (contact local operator following booking to confirm departure time). Transfer to a water puppet show, where you’ll see lacquered wood puppets dance on a water “stage”, accompanied by songs from a Vietnamese choir and orchestra.

It’s easy to follow the storylines, which are often humorous, and depict rural Vietnamese life and folklore in vivid colors. Following the water puppet show, transfer to the wharf for a dinner cruise along the Saigon River. As you dine, a troupe of Vietnamese folk singers will offer a different take on traditional music—it’s a world away from the more formal music at the water puppet show.

Enjoy views of Ho Chi Minh City’s colorful skyline from the water, and watch for the small fishing boats that navigate along the shore. Return to shore after dinner, then finish the night with drop-off at your cruise port.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Ho Chi Minh City
Pick up at Sai Gon port. The evening will begin with an unforgettable Water Puppet Show. Water puppetry is a unique Vietnamese art form performed in a large pool using the water as a stage. It is considered one of the most traditional and important parts of Vietnamese culture. You will also enjoy the Vietnamese orchestra, which provides the background music for the show. The orchestra is manned by an array of talented singers accompanied by professional musicians performing with traditional musical instruments. The show is a great way to learn more about the Vietnamese rural life and folklore. The programs performed, especially those involving tales of day-to-day living, often have humorous plot twists for you to enjoy. After the show, we will head to the Wharf where we will enjoy a dinner served on board a cruise. The cruise will have a live entertainment by traditional folk style songs. Go back to the cruise.
