Escape the bustling confines of Hanoi city, and breath the fresh air on this full-day rural Vietnam tour. With a local lunch of goat meat, fried rice and local fruits onboard, you’ll be fueled for an afternoon of action, taking in the scenery by both bamboo boat and mountain bike. See local villagers going about their daily lives as you come to appreciate a quieter slice of Vietnamese culture.

Excellent show covering so many aspects of Vietnam life and culture through music and lights set on a lake a bus ride out of town. Transportation included in ticket. It is outside so need a jacket. Can have a meal at the sight or take your own although it appeared that most people paid for a meal. The food looked good!

Sorry to be a debby downer, but it sooooooooooo is not worth seeing this show. You leave your hotel at 4:40 for a 5 o'clock pickup, then drive AN HOUR AND A HALF to get there, see it, then another hour and half back to arrive at 9:45. Not even close to worth the hassle.

What works: The USP of this show are the farmer-turned actors, standing on stage telling the story of their own ordinary lives. The landscape, the technical resources, the basic ambience, everything is super impressive. What needs to be worked on: The storytelling aspect. Throughout the show, I kept wondering what exactly is the show about. What does Tonkin refer to is something I had to figure out using Google sources, when that needs to be a quintessential part of the Quintessence of Tonkin.

Without doubt one of the very best cultural shows I have ever seen in my life and on my world-wide travels. Our guide, Tranh, was very professional, very polite with superb English. To describe this cultural show is covered by one statement: spectacular and stunningly impressive and beautiful. If you ever have the pleasure being in Hanoi, this is another one of the MUST-TO-DO items on the traveller's itinerary. A very moving and wonderful experience. Consider to buy a Platium Ticket (seats are very comfortable and the seatings are in a covered area with the ultimate best view).
