Anyone who visits Hanoi MUST see the 1-hour Water Puppet Show! It is only an hour long, and you have several shows per day to select from. You MUST fit it into your schedule. It is located downtown beside the lake that you're certain to visit (which also has the John McCain memorial, located where he parachuted and was captured). The Water Puppet Show is accompanied by 6 musicians using traditional instruments. Every moment is exciting, joyful, and educational. Catch the show!!!

Lovely vintage theater across from Hoan Kiem Lake in a lush setting, this is an enjoyable experience with traditional music and singing, accompanying the often amusing antics of the water puppets. The puppets were much larger than I had expected, and the handlers, who are behind a curtain, are flawless in their presentation of Vietnamese life and ancient beliefs. Our performance was booked through Gate 1 Tours, so we were able to skip the line. Seating is open so you should try to arrive early for a good seat.

It's fabulous. The history behind water puppets is so interesting and the performance itself is mesmerizing. I purchased the audio translation which explained the show. This was really interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was held in a beautiful old theatre with so much character

You simply have to watch it. Its a traditional water puppet act with northern Vietnamese folk music. It has action, comedy, drama and mystery. What else can you ask for. Its a 50 mins show and let me tell you, you will be entertained every minute of it. Just sit back and enjoy the show. You will be amazed by the wonderful music and singing by the performers. Take a look at the program on the pic that I have posted.
Just go watch it. Worth the time and money.

A very enjoyable 50 minute show, spectacular, entertaining and fun all at !00,000 Dong (£3.30). The theatre itself is a lovely old French building with original seats, the music and performance were excellent.

Unlike other reviews I wouldn't say this is a must-see attraction. However, it only cost us $6 and lasted an hour so it is fine. The music was nice. I did go with 2 twenty-somethings so maybe that colored the experience.

We took in this show at the end of our first day in Vietnam, after a 12 hour flight and then a day of sightseeing. It was spectacular and very enjoyable, just wish we hadn't been so tired.

This one of a kind experience seems uniquely Vietnamese. The history behind water puppets is so interesting and the performance itself is mesmerizing. It's available at two theaters and I can vouch for this one that it's a not-to-miss activity.
