1. I got to choose chicken pho or bunh cha for dinner. Bunh cha is really good~ 2. Dan told me knowledge about Vietnam culture, especially Vietnam sacred animals that is also showing in the puppet show 3. As it is moon festival, he gave me bonus to see temporary night market 4. Another bonus is visiting an active railway where people lived just 1 meter away. Was in correct time for the train 5. After puppet show, Dan gave me chance to ride motorcycle experience and he is good driver too!

I was picked up on time by my friendly guide, Hannah (Thanh). We took a cyclo around the old quarter and Hoan Kiem lake and then I was taken for some food the guide recommended and an egg coffee. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and had excellent English. The tour ended as I was walked to the water puppet theatre and given directions back to my hotel. I was pushed for time, so booking this tour was great for me as I didn't have to worry about purchasing a ticket for the water puppet show (which is often sold out). I enjoyed the show, and would recommend as it is a unique experience.

It was so nice! The food was incredible and my tour guide, she was so kind and helpful. We had so much of fun and specially, I like the part of cyclo and water puppet show. If you want to know more about Vietnam, you should try both of them. Highly recommend!
