Very Random But Interesting
Mar 2019
Visited in March 2019
Part of cruise excursion. Small museum attached to the theatre selling cultural items as you'd expect. A lot of books on the Vietnam War which did surprise me.
The puppet show was the most random thing we saw on the cruise! Wasn't really sure what the story was about but did get the gist of it, I think!
Very clever and amusing. Worth a visit even just for a rest!

A part of Vietnamese culture that should be experienced.

We were very pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed this production. The puppetry is done well and the story line is easy enough to understand. The Vietnamese instruments were interesting to see. We bought tickets at our hotel and got excellent seats.

Fun Water Puppet Show
Jan 2020
Although the show was in Vietnamese, the 45 minute show was very entertaining. The musicians and the puppets were unique and very enjoyable. Our whole group of 13 including 6 children were kept entertained for the duration. We were unsure what to expect but was very enjoyable. Don't sit in the front row as you will get wet.

Fun show - great artistry

Water puppetry is something of a Vietnamese speciality. The show is relatively short and fun to watch. The musicians sit alongside the performance area and its cool to watch them too. Do sit in the front row!

Good show
Sep 2019
The show is good. Show starts just in time and ends in time. it is in a very small theater. they will whole series of little stories based on myths, history and everyday life. There is live music and narration which adds to the whole experience.

Would recommend this to everybody coming to Ho Chi Min.. pure delight

Everyone involved in the creation of this show has a true creative art and it shows through the humour and naivety of the heritage-of the show itself

Very sweet show and very impressed
