A beautiful insight into a very traditional art form. Clever, witty, wistful and interesting for all ages. The buffet option is a little less than spectacular, but for about $12aud for the show and dinner, it's still a good deal.

It was nice to see a show about Vietnam's culture, i appreciate the songs, and the puppet navigating skills but because it was all in Vietnamese i felt sleepy watching it.

Really entertaining for all. Enjoyed this a lot. Be sure to pair this with a cyclo and Saigon river dinner cruise. Quite a few companies that do this.

I really enjoyed myself. The show was awesome and the one of the drummers was really hot! But the show itself was very entertaining and there are lots of restaurants and other things around the theater to go after you're done watching the show. The seats were a little uncomfortable but it didn't take away from the show so I... More

We were able to seat in the most front seat. My children (elementary school) were very pleased. It is recommended that you go after you book with agency.

Wonderful experience. We all loved it. The little ones were enthralled and so were their parents! Polite, courteous staff and enthusiastic performers. It was a bit hot inside but it was a summers day after all. Loved it.

wow, wow, wow, was so glad we went to see the water puppet show. What an interesting show it was, what the puppeteers did with the puppets considering they were in water was fantastic. Just of short taxi ride from our hotel and entry was very cheap. We have lots of wonderful photos to remember it by.

10 yrs ago my husband & I went to the water puppets in Hanoi. "Never again " we said. Well, we took the kids in Saigon & it was bearable. I wanted the kids to see a puppet show - it was only 50 mins & about 15 short stories. If you don't have high expectations - you'll enjoy the... More
