A must-watch when you're are HCMC. Very interesting show , although can't understand as it is in Vietnam language.

The activities about normal life in this show mainly take place in the North of Vietnam, not in the South. You can find some activities in this show such as boat racing, lion dacing, frog fishing, raising ducks ect.

We thought this would be fun for the kids to see while we were in Vietnam - and even though we couldn't understand the language, it was still fun to watch. Very different. Make sure you get tickets early as it sells out quickly. They...More

As a family we really enjoyed this performance out of the ordinary. We are glad we did this as part of our Ho Chi Minh visit.

Hi, I have 2 children. A 5 and a near 2 yr old. Would this show be suitable? I am wondering if the 2 year old would have the attention span. How long does it go for? Thanks!

Lasts maybe a bit less than an hour. Probably cheap enough that you could leave early if the child gets bored. About $US7 or £UK5. Enjoy if you go, try and get seats near the front for best view.
