Fun, magical, and informative, this Vietnamese water puppet show experience and Hoi An night tour is perfect for a romantic date night, a fun evening with friends, or a family celebration. Enjoy a memorable night out at the colorful water puppet show, dine at a local riverside restaurant, and shop for trinkets at the night market!
By night, Hoi An Ancient Town transforms into a city of lanterns. Its night market comes to life with stalls selling beautiful handmade arts and crafts, but its real charm lies in the colorful hanging silk lanterns that adorn all the buildings and streets. On this tour, you'll first take a one-and-a-half-hour boat trip to view the sunset at Duy Hai fishing village then return to the Ancient Town to have a different view of the Ancient Town at night — a very romantic, unique, and unforgettable scenery during your Vietnam trip. After your boat trip, head to the Hoi An Water Puppet Theater to enjoy a water puppet performance. Water puppetry is a unique folk art form that is associated with the long history of Vietnam's wet rice civilization. Water puppetry is exactly as it sounds — puppets dancing and moving along the water, controlled by the invisible hands of the puppet masters. It's not just a great source of entertainment, but also a form of art that needs extreme precision and tremendous practice. Combined with traditional music, it's a perfect way to enjoy Vietnamese traditional culture. You'll get to have dinner at a nice restaurant located on the bank of the Hoai River, enjoying a great view of the main part of the Ancient Town from the other part of the river as you dine. End your night with some shopping at the night market, where colorful stalls hawk a variety of local snacks and trinkets.
