One of the most interesting experiences travelers who spend their vacations in Vietnam should never miss is to watch a Water Puppet Show in Hanoi.
The traditions of water puppets date back as early as the 11th century in the country. The performance now takes place in a swimming pool where large pieces of wood support the puppet from beneath and move them around. Several tourists who travel to Vietnam enjoy these performances.
The water surface in the swimming pool represents the stage of the water puppets, a show that grabs the attention of a large number of tourists who spend their vacations in Vietnam.
Puppeteers stand behind the large pieces of wood to control the puppets in a wonderful performance telling stories about the heritage and history of Vietnam. The performance takes from 2 to 4 hours and it is accompanied by the finest tunes of live music.
