I saw this performance in 2014 and enjoyed it so 'signed up' for a second visit. I somehow remember it being longer than the 30 minute performance this time, perhaps it has been cut back. Cost is 100,000 VND, about $6AUS ($5US) and worth the...More

Worth watching this as part of the 5 attractions you can choose using the Hoi An entrance ticket. I particularly enjoyed the traditional dances and sorrowfully sweet sounds produced with the Vietnamese violin.

Always expect the unexpected and I was pleasantly surprised. It was my first time with the Vietnamese performance. Didn't run to the length of time I was expecting. But what I did see was very clever and intriguing. Tip : book early , arrive early

The seating is not comfortable but I loved the performance and the audience was encouraged to participate. There were a number of short performances to cater for a variety of tastes.

We were 4 of 7 in the audience when we went - there were more performers. Kids liked the show, and we thought it was interesting to see and hear some of the Vietnamese culture. It seems like it needs quite a bit of a...More
