Harsh, brutal, fascinating and sickening are all words that could be used to describe Ho Chi Minh City’s War Remnants Museum. Learn about the devastating impacts of chemical agents used during the Vietnamese War, be horrified looking at preserved foetuses, shudder at the sight of reconstructed torture cells, learn about left during the war, treatment of civilians and see the imposing vehicles of war. A visit to one of Vietnam’s most popular attractions is not a pleasant experience, but is definitely one not to be missed.
Enjoy a form of entertainment unique to Vietnam as you watch large bright wooden puppets perform on water. Marvel at the skill of the puppeteers, who are secluded behind screens, as you take a peek into the marvellous traditions of Vietnamese culture. Listen to the wonderful traditional music, performed a live orchestra, and by captivated by the charming stories told through the puppets. See people, fish and dragons acting out various scenes. Pay a visit to the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theatre in Ho Chi Minh City for an enjoyable and memorable evening.
