Vietnamese water puppet has been a unique puppet show well known by the world. It was also recommended that there is one in Hanoi which is well known and recommended via internet.
Non the less, there are not many activities that we could do in Ha Long, therefore, our tour included a water puppet show and cultural show at the local well known Royal Amusement Park. Indeed it was packed with tourists too. There is a Casino in Royal Amusement Park and before the show started, few of us went to have a short gamble and it was my first to gamble in a Casino, normally just watching friends to play back in the University in Liverpool.
- Water Puppet Show -
I always tell myself that every country has their own culture and believe, we should respect them. Well, not many people that found water puppet show interesting and from such I've seen on that night, the music, the puppets, the musician, it's all teamwork. Never easy to deal with and to be recognise by the world.
Immediate after the puppet show, we went to another venue by walking distance to watch the Vietnamese cultural show.
Frankly, they have similar culture attires like us and even the dances!
One of them will be Bamboo dances, where in Sabah, Bamboo dances is a traditional dances by the Murut here. Do I ever mentioned that we could see similar traditional wear in China as well?!
Perhaps, we might see similarity again in another Asia country too. :)
- Cultural Dances -
I always love culture and it has been the way to understand more about a country. :)
