We used one of our 5 Old town tickets to see the dance and music show in the afternoon and it was really worth the visit! It was great to see some of the traditional dances and songs performed by a young group of people!...More

It's a tourist trap. And a bad one at that. I was as bored as the musicians. The music was fine, but the show was embarrassing. Bad costumes and worse dances. Or the other way around... Go spend your time somewhere else. Or waste it...More

Sure, some complain that this is a tourist trap but really! Where in the world isn't? At least it is cheap (VND 20k) and air conditioned - and I for one enjoyed the distraction. 3 shows daily 10.15am, 3.15pm and 4.15pm. Enjoy!

That was our spontaneous choice for the evening and it was the best we could go for in Hoi an. The show was lovely and I think it's great for everyone who wants to see something traditional and get to know the culture a bit...More

A mix of dancers and musicians performing in an intimate little old style theatre. The musicians are brilliant - they played some Vietnamese songs but also their own alternative rendition of Johann Strauss' "The Blue Danube waltz". The dance performances were equally entertaining with some...More
