Dance, music and puppetry
The traditional performing arts are alive and well in Southeast Asia and add an entertaining insight into local culture for kids and adults alike. The Hanoi Water Puppets are must for any family visit to Vietnam's capital, whilst for those exploring Mai Chau a traditional dance performance is a great introduction to the local minority cultures. In Siem Reap the excellent Phare Circus provides a modern, energetic show, whilst the Apsara dancers offer a more traditional Cambodian style.
Take a look behind the scenes of one of Vietnam's most beloved art forms: Water puppetry.
