Thang Long water Puppet Show

by Maykong

Where do I get the tickets in advance and normally how many days in advance do I need to take ?

Re: Thang Long water Puppet Show

by nzbased

Hi, we booked the same day, and had no problems. In fact, we had almost front row seats. But it may depend on the time of year (high/low season). If you have a few days in Hanoi, you could definitely book ahead while there.

Right at the theater itself, there's a ticket booth at the entrance (see my tip on this below). You can actually buy and watch the same day if there aren't a lot of tourists in town. If you plan to go to Halong then I suggest you buy them at least 2 days before the show so you could watch when you return to Hanoi.

You don't need to book in advance. Or you could book in advance before 4 hours, and your hotel in Hanoi can help you to book

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Temple Construction

by guell

The temples of Vietnam are traditionally constructed entirely of wood and assembled without nails or screws. Roof trusses are held in place by a complex lattice of stiles and rails.

One of the best examples of traditional Temple architecture is the Temple of Literature.

Traditional Living in the Mountains

by Brisvegaskid

Through Handspan Travel (80 Ma May St, Hanoi) we booked a tour to Sa Pa. We (2 adults, 2 teenage daughters) travelled overnight on the train in a 4-berth sleeper. We slept better than we expected. On arrival we were taken by bus on a very scenic journey to Sa Pa - about an hour. From here we went from the Handspan office by jeep to the start of our trek.

We had our own guide, for just our family. We trekked 18km up through the mountains and down clay paths, through the paddi fields, over streams with hanging bridges and through the local villages. We stayed with a family in their village home. Cold water, our own towels, very clean squat toilet, beds with no sheets (we had our own silk sheets) and we ate what they ate. We loved it and it was the highlight of our whole trip - but don't consider doing this if you have different expectations.

Buying ceramic

by Applelyn about Local Crafts

In all the shops I went to in Hanoi, this shop owner was the only one that didnt push her products. Even though I didnt buy anything from her as it was only my first day there, she helped me with directions to get to my restaurant. I guess this is good customer service. A look around her products, the price tags looked reasonable but "bargain" is still a must. In this shop you can find, ceramic ware, stone ware and masks. I like the colourful ceramic tea set with a wooden tray. It is good for display or a gift. It really depends on the quality. On average about USD5.

There are rickshaws and rickshaws. . . .

by kokoryko

Some local people still call them pousse-pousse, the French name for these vehicles.
I only used once that kind of transportation medium in Hanoi, so I cannot tell a lot about, but for short distances, in the old city they are quite useful and agreeable.
Two sorts of rickshaws:
--The ones waiting for the customers at hotels and tourist spots; I do not know the price for a short ride, and I do not like a lot being “hooked” by these guys who are a bit “aggressive”.
--The ones you find on markets and other popular places, not specially looking for the foreigners, just waiting for customers; I paid 40.000 Dong from Quan Than temple to the Hotel Metropole (4 km), probably not very expensive.
Sitting in the rickshaw is a bit scaring at the beginning in the heavy traffic of Hanoi, but after a few minutes, you get used, and even begin to think of making pictures of what happens around in the traffic or on the roadsides. It is enjoyable to go around in a rickshaw, but again, the drivers do not speak English, so, be patient and use a map to explain where you want to go.
