Full Itinerary
 

Cheo (traditional operetta) is one of the unique traditional art forms of Vietnam. It has roots in ancient village festival in the Northern Delta dated back almost eight hundred years ago.

The tour starts with a visit to the Temple of Literature, the first university in Vietnam which was founded in the 12 century. From the Temple we will head to the Old Quarter of Hanoi for a great cyclo tour through the lively ancient town. The cyclo will take us to an ancient house for the highlight activity of the tour, the Cheo performance.

As we entering the ancient house, the Cheo artists will welcome us with a special greeting ceremony. While the band plays traditional music of Cheo, the artists invite us to enjoy green tea and “trau”, or betel. They will talk about Cheo - the true folk art of the Red River Delta, its history and its important role in the spiritual life of Red River Delta habitants. We then will enjoy two uniquely ancient Cheo extracts which are full of joy and colors. The extracts will be performed on a simple mat since the original Cheo stage was just a mat in the yard of village communal house.

After the performance, we can take photos with Cheo artists or have a conversation with them. Before leaving, we will hear a bit about the ancient house as well as the famous tube-like-house architecture style of Hanoi ancient quarter.
