Water Puppets/Swim in Halong Bay

Am a bit confused about the Water Puppets - are there several theaters that have this show? Municipal Theater and Thang Long? Or are they one and the same?

If different shows, which is better?

Does anyone recommend swimming in HB during the overnight cruise or will kayaking be better? Will be there at the end of the month.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi mloz,

The 2 mentioned theaters are one and the same, on the bank of the Sword Restored Lake.

There are several shows everyday. For best enjoyment, consider to take the seat at the front row at vnd40,000/pp.

Rgds,

As for HLB suspect you can do both on most tours ( depending on weather ! I was there in oct 06 and it was hot - not so sure about june weather though?)

You must go kayaking if you get the chance ...........really interesting and beautiful scenery

Thanks Noosa! I had read in some posts that the water in HB was not too clean so was wondering about the swimming.
