tour details

In past times puppetry in Myanmar was not merely a popular entertainment, but a high art held in much esteem by all classes. Marionette performances were a means of making people aware of current events, of literature, history and religion, and a display of lifestyles and customs. Today, the traditional marionette theatres are less frequented by local people, who tend to prefer more modern entertainment and news-giving media such as television; but they are a source of great delight for visitors to Mandalay – the centre of Myanmar arts and culture – as well as an insight into Myanmar tradition.
