Combine two popular activities in Hanoi: a cyclo tour of the Old Quarter followed by a water puppet show. You’re picked up from your hotel by cyclo and pedaled around the city at a relaxed pace. Enjoy unobstructed views of street scenes and capture the perfect photo op en route to Hoan Kiem Lake. Then take a seat at the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre for a 1-hour show featuring the Vietnamese art of water puppetry.
Start your 1-hour cyclo ride with hotel pickup in Hanoi. Get comfortable aboard your bicycle rickshaw as your driver pedals past significant city landmarks. In the French Quarter you’ll see the French-colonial grandeur of the Hanoi Opera House and the timeless elegance of the Sofitel Metropole Legend Hotel, built in an opulent era.
Continue on to Hoan Kiem Lake and Hanoi’s Old Quarter to explore 36 tree-lined streets in the historic district. Finish your cyclo tour at the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre and settle in for a quintessential show. Watch puppeteers perform Vietnamese legends on the water’s surface using a system of underwater poles and strings that bring the elaborate puppets to life.
Afterward, your tour ends at the theater.
