itinerary


All guests are warmly welcome upon arrival at Noi Bai International Airport by our local guide then transfer to the hotel for check in.

Free at your own leisure until pick up to visit the beautiful Hoan Kiem Lake - the most beautiful lake in Hanoi before enjoy a performance of the famous water puppet show. The Vietnamese traditional art of water puppetry has roots that date back to the 10th century when it originated in the Red River Delta area of northern Vietnam. The farmers in the region celebrated festivals and harvests by performing this unique art form. Learning to manipulate the puppets is usually a tradition that is passed on as a family secret. It takes a great deal of skill and because the puppeteer’s hands are underwater, it is easy for them to hide their methods. The fascinating part is that the central stage is below the water line, and the puppeteers stand in the waist-deep water. A rattan curtain hides them, but they can see the stage and the audience through the bamboo slats. Dinner at local restaurant. Overnight at hotel in Hanoi.



After breakfast at hotel, you will enjoy the journey of more than 4 hours on newest highway to Lao Cai. Lunch will be served en route at local restaurant.
