A great show & VERY talented acrobats.

This is a wonderful 1-hour show, that includes modern acrobatics, Vietnam-style.The main theme of the show are traditional Vietnamese baskets & big sticks.The acrobats vì chưng an absolutely WONDERFUL job in entertaining the audience, while performing jaw-dropping acrobatic routines.While there is very little connection between the different acts, the enthusiasm of the dancers biến hóa for it.We got seats C1 & C3, which are on the 3rd row of the theater (they are called "Ohh" tickets). The tickets were 840,000 VND (apx. 37US$) và were totally worth it.Notice that photography is not allowed during the show (distractions from the audience might literally endanger the acrobats).Do not miss taking a photo with the performers when the show is over - the entire cast comes down lớn the entrance of the opera house and is more than happy khổng lồ take photos & selfies with the audience.Bottom line - an absolute MUST attraction lớn enjoy while in Ho chi Minh.
