Travel in AUG, 2018
In Vietnam, I watched a total of three performances. If I add a performance that I didn't expect at Myson, I would have watched five performances. All the performances I saw were the most traditional Vietnamese performances and the most beautiful performances. Among them, I would like to review The Hoian Memories. It was a performance that showed the charm of Hoian, less known than Danang, which maximized the charm of Aozai, a traditional Vietnamese costume, and made me aware of the old Hoian history.
Recently, a variety of parks have been built in Hoian. One of them is the Hoian theme Impression Park. Since the Hoian Impression Park was recently opened. However everything was not 100% opened, it may be obvious that it is not well known. But the main performance, the Hoian Memories, is currently in operation. Therefore, I recommend that anyone traveling in Hoian visit here and see the performance.
Hoian Impression Theme Park
It is a theme park. This is a reproduction of the streets of Hoian as well as the traditional features of Vietnam. So if this place is completely built and opened, it will probably become a center for many tourists. There are some restaurants and some places where you can experience traditional Vietnamese culture. There are tickets, including performances, and so on. Of course I would recommend purchasing it, that include performances and cultural park. If you don't have much time, you can just buy a performance ticket. The show begins at 7:30 p.m., but I want to tell you to arrive at least at 7. Because there is a small performance before the Hoian Memories show.
Small stage, the wedding of Princess Ngoc Hoa and Japanese merchant
This performance expressed the wedding. Hoian was once the center of a trading city. Therefore, various foreign cultures have entered the Hoian, so Vietnam, China, and Japan are mixed. The traces of that diverse culture are easily found in the old city streets of Hoian. A good example of Phuoc Kien Assembly Hall(It was a gathering place for Chinese merchants from Beijing who used to live in Hoian in 1757.) and Lai Vien Kieu(The name of the bridge that connects Hoian City in Vietnam with the residence in Japan.), which are well known to foreigners, is a sign of the culture. The princess of Vietnam and the Japanese merchant got married. This performance is a representation of it. So you can feel the very Japanese at first scene, but the last one creates a different atmosphere. This performance was probably about 15 minutes. It's not too long, so it's good to watch it before the Hoian Memories. The small stage performs after the Hoian Memories. But there's a lot of audience out there. It is better to go early and watch this small performance more leisurely than in time for the crowds.
Non lights on the way to the main concert hall The upper street lamp is made of non, called Vietnamese traditional hat. This street was very pretty. Many people were busy walking around and taking pictures. I couldn't help but bring up the camera, too. This place was very modern and traditional. And that symbolizes those parts was very impressive.
