After traveling the whole country by motorbike from one capital to the other arriving to this night performance in Hanoi was the most emotional experience we had. Great live musicians! Simple but very power and meaningful.

Water Puppet... new for us & Yes we enjoyed it, good for family with kids, near night market. They have 3 shows/day, $7.5/pax. They use local language but easy to understand what they are showing. Must try with kids and well time spend.

Let's get this out of the way: for what it offers, the price is almost outrageous. The show in itself is very nice, although very short and honestly, it's nothing to write home about. The music is the most enjoyable part. The puppeteer's choreographies are...More
