This 4-hour evening tour of Hanoi starts with a hotel pickup a little before 4pm, and the tour takes off at 4pm sharp. Your first stop is at a city market, where you can gain a better understanding for local life in the Vietnamese capital. Your guide shows you the ropes, and you can pick up any souvenirs you wish (own expense).
After, move along to watch a puppet show on water. The performance is accompanied by an orchestra, and showcases an ancient Vietnamese art form. On some lucky nights, there’s even fireworks. The colorful show is a great experience, and gives outsiders a look into Vietnamese culture and folklore.
The last stop of the night is at a colonial villa where you can enjoy a dinner buffet of French and Vietnamese dishes. Once everyone in your group is done, you're escorted back to your hotels.
