The Quintessence of Tonkin

Written by

This new cultural show draws inspiration from the spiritual history of the nearby Thay Pagoda, telling the story of the pagoda’s founding monk Tu Dao Hanh and explaining the ancient union between religion and the monarchy.


Similar to other shows of its ilk that now woo in the tourists — think AO show in Saigon — The Quintessence of Tonkin plays an important role in helping non-Vietnamese understand Vietnam.


Years in the making and with hundreds of performers, an interactive stage, state-of-the-art technology, and a stunning setting, The Quintessence of Tonkin is an ongoing live event that should be added to any itinerary to Hanoi.
