I didnt really like the Puppet show but the dinner cruise after was amazing, highly recommend it. Keep your wallet close to your body and zip and clutch handbags, hubby had his wallet pick pocketed here

“Different yet...Cool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

We had some apprehensions before going to the show especially because...it's a puppet show! The minute you walk in, you wonder why you did, but the minute the show starts, it intrigues you. The whole show, about 35 minutes, is done entirely in Vietnamese and keeps you guessing on what the topics and songs are all about. But as soon as the puppets come out on the water, you can easily make out what the themes are all about. The show is different and short enough to keep your attention for the whole time. Definitely better then some other things we did while in Ho Chi Minh!

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This theater is world wide known and it is really worth to see it. If you do not see it than you can not say you were in Vietnam. There are three shows a day, book the show in advance.

Enjoyed the vignettes, but would have been better if summaries of the vignettes in other languages could be provided.

“Cute show!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

It might be a boring show for some people due to its story and Vietnamese language, but for me it is a very cute show. I love all musicians and dolls. The ticket price is 150,000vnd. Showtimes are 17.00, 18.30, 19.45 daily.
