We went as it was booked on our group tour. It was interesting & well done, clever & funny at times, but it would not go down as one of the must see attractions in this busy interesting city.

A wonderful and unusual show about the Vietnamese culture. Something everyone should visit on their holiday.

I took my 11 year old daughter to the puppet theatre and it was very entertaining. We giggled and enjoyed the show. Even though there was no English we still understood the stories about the culture and found ourselves smiling a lot. We sat at the front as we were on a tour. I highly recommend this for young children... More

The Golden Dragon Water Puppets were definately something. It was very hard to follow if you are not local as it is narrated in Vietnamese and seems like it is comprised of many short scenes. However the music was great and to this day I still can only guess to how the puppets were controlled. Furtheremore, I advise booking on... More

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.
