The water puppets are a lot of fun for children and adults. Definitely worth going too. Even though the story is in vietnamese, any one can understand and enjoy.

it was my first ever water puppet show and it was brilliant! i am happy I said yes to my husband when he asked me to go here. however, we just entertained ourselves with the movements. this could have been more lovely if they had an english translation.

The puppet show was nice but there are no available english translation. All dialouges are in vietnamese. So we just watched to the movements of the puppets and the music. If you are really into culture and arts, then its a must see.
