“Spectacular puppetry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Very spectacular puppetry! Humourous in parts and live music was interesting. Only drawback is that performance is in vietnamese and we didn't understand the storyline. Theatre can be quite warm too. Other than these, performance is a definite must-watch.

“A Little Dull”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Intriguing at first, the water puppet show is a clever combination of puppetry in a pool and live music. The whole show is really well co-ordinated and I was impressed at first, however I felt the show went on for too long as I was not properly drawn into the experience.

Amusing but ceased to amaze.

“a marvel”

A mix of music, comedy and a story, simply a must see if you have not seen a water peppet show before. there is little leg room between rows so if you are tall get in early

“wonderful event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Very clever puppetry, great to see a bit of Vietnamese culture. It was part of a package tour with a dinner cruise and cyclo tour included... well worth the money! Totally recommend this.

“Not for adults”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Entertainment will attract kids below 10 yrs old. Everything was in Vietnamese narration. We couldn't understand the program. Live Vietnamese music is appreciated. But sitting for 55minutes can bore the adult. Be sure your tour guide will get u seats near the stage or else you really will not see anything.
