Brilliant! My husband, daughter 20yrs, son 18yrs and I LOVED this show. I personally didn't want it to end and clapped and waved like a child at the end of performance. A must see!

The water puppet show is traditionally Vietnamese so if you are into art/culture/theatre, then I would recommend this for you. It is also quite cheap at only USD8 per person.

This theater is centrally located in middle of town with a nice park close by. Very busy area with lots of souvenir shops and places to eat close by. Loved the puppet show, alittle over an hour, worth seeing, not a " must see"

Prepare to be amazed. The short show, only 45 minutes long, is a great way to experience traditional Vietnamese culture. Consisting of 17 short episodes, they are easy to understand, despite the language barrier. The theatre is central, with three shows a day (5, 6.30 and 7.45 pm), and costing only160,000 dong (about £5) - although this was twice the... More

Our tour guide recommended not to miss this while we are in Vietnam. It was indeed good for the kids as I was feeling very sleepy during the entire show and could not understand what they were saying as there was no English translation.

The water puppets show was extremely creative and fun for any age! The music and ambience was perfect. The puppet masters were highly skilled.

This show was really entertaining. Very unique with enthusiastic musicians and interesting voices added in a humorous way. Don't sit in the front row unless you plan on getting amongst it as you will get a bit wet.

We went, not knowing how popular it was, and they were sold out for the next two nights. We had to change another tour just to be able to see it. We are we glad we did. I like puppets so my review is biased but I recommend seeing it just to learn more about the Vietnamese culture and history.... More
