Water Puppet Tours


With its numerous national parks, white sand beaches, colourful villages, pagodas and ancient monuments, forests and islands, Vietnam is a land of often surprising beauty, offering cultural depth and history, increasingly combined with tourism-friendly areas offering all the facilities a modern traveller could wish for.

Vietnam’s people are its greatest asset: gregarious, friendly and eager to meet visitors. In the bustling cities, the often chaotic streets contrast ox carts with limousines, ancient rituals with sophisticated technology, and are ruled by the ubiquitous moped.

Our strength is in translating these opportunities into detailed, practical itineraries. We do luxury travel and event planning, as well as a wide range of beach, family, honeymoon, adventure, golf, veteran and cultural tours.

There is no better way to experience a destination than through the perspective of the local people. At Water Puppet Tours, this key element of local insight drives every step of our process of tour design and delivery. We provide tailor-made tours individually crafted for each client, achieving this by emphasizing the direct working relationship between the client and the tour designer and operator.

Impression: Variety of transportation on my tour

Dear Linh,

Thank you for the lovely red silk cloth/table-runner/bed-adorner!

I enjoyed my tour of Indochina *very much*. Some of my favorite highlights. Included an evening theatre presentation at the National Museum in Phnom Penh (the troupe enacted for us the traditional rituals at birth, death, marriage, healing, etc.), the amazing karst islands of Ha Long Bay & Krabi, Loy Krathong in Bangkok & Chiang Mai, the grand tapestry of religious buildings & practices (all up & down the Mekong River region) and, of course, the ancient Khmer temples of the Siem Reap area. Things went smoothly, the only problem was Siem Reap to Phnom Penh (the ox-cart trip had to be re-scheduled & that made things very rushed for Samphor in the capital. One of your best ideas was to build in a variety of transportation on my tour: tuk-tuk to ox-cart, bicycle to bamboo-train, junk to motor-boat to narrow canoes! That kept things fresh. I also had friends & contacts to meet across the region which added another dimension for me. The guides were friendly & knowledgeable, especially Mr. Sophan; the drivers were safe & efficient.

I will definitely recommend you and Water Puppet Tours to my friends/acquaintances to mention Vietnam.
