Hanoi - Its North & History 5D4N

OVERVIEW
The capital city of Hanoi has become an intriguing blend of old and new, East and West. Beyond the usual tourist paths, AWS has planned visits to private homes of Vietnamese citizens and a luncheon with a local patrician in his home to hear his personal account of Vietnamese history.


Our adventure takes you to local theatres, traditional water puppertry shows ('tuong'), classical opera and 'Ca Tru', the ancient art of chamber music featuring female vocalists in combination with  water puppetry, a unique art form based upon local folk traditions.
