Water Puppet Show Ticket in Ho Chi Minh City with Hotel Delivery

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
What to Expect
Visit: Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater, 55B Nguyen Thi Minh Khai District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 700000 Vietnam

With the entrance ticket you have the chance to relish in the fascinating art of a water puppet show, which is closely associated with the spiritual life of Vietnamese people, especially in the countryside. The show’s chosen stage is the surface of a water pool. The puppeteers present their clever skills in managing puppets by long bamboo rods and string mechanism under the surface. A traditional Vietnamese orchestra is an excellent music accompaniment.

The puppets depict the story from the songs during the show, which reflects the peaceful life of the Vietnamese countryside, so it is not too difficult to understand it.

The show times are standard everyday. 17:00 and 16:30. They drop the tickets to your hotel if you are central but you will need to arrange your own ride to the show, bring the tickets to redeem at the show.
