I took our 7 year old daughter to this. She asked to leave about 10 mins before the end, but I enjoyed it. I think she would have enjoyed it more when she was younger. There were a few very bored looking teenagers too. That...More

Would highly recommend that everyone visiting Vietnam watches a water puppet performance at least once. Entertaining for both children and adults despite being delivered in the Vietnamese language-no problem following the storyline. Good exposure to Vietnamese culture at an affordable price.

The water puppet show was fantastic, more geared at families but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless! There are several short stories/performances across 45 minutes and the show is done very skillfully by local puppeteers. Would be great for kids.

Only 80000, 45 minutes long, and very entertaining. The puppets are brilliant and some of the show is hilarious. There's a short english intro to each performance. We got there at 6:05pm and got second row seats, right in the middle. Definitely worth going, there's...More

A trip back in time to the culture and folklore of Vietnam. The puppets are in, on, and under the water. Dances and other movements are synchronized to recorded music and executed beautifully. The puppeteers reveal themselves at the end.
