Full description
Choose from a shared or private experience to spend a few hours exploring the local culture of Hanoi by night. Take in the sights and smells of the bustling market with your guide and learn how the locals buy and trade. Afterwards, enjoy an authentic cultural experience by seeing a water puppet show. Native to Northern Vietnam, water puppetry gives an insight into rural Vietnamese life and folklore. Puppets are made from light timbers and are carved, polished, and decorated with different colours to demonstrate the clear personalities of each character. The show is performed in a pool using the water surface as the stage. The stage is decorated with flags, fans, and parasols. The artisans inside the cabin control the puppets with a system of ropes arranged outside or underwater.  After the show, head to the West Lake where you will enjoy a lavish buffet dinner. With a wide range of food options, get a comprehensive taste of North Vietnamese cuisine to finish your evening in Hanoi.
