“A must see! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

We hadn't initially planned on seeing the show, we just walked past and saw the advertisement.

We didn't have a problem getting a ticket (130,000VND) and good seats.

The show was very enjoyable and we saw a series of different dances and Vietnamese entertainment.

At the end of the show there is an opportunity to go and join in with the dances and take pictures with the cast.

Excellent experience for young and old. Highly recommended.

Condition of the hall is in bad shape. The headphones provided are not functioning or too soft to be heard. However the performance was entertaining with alot cultural dances.

“Surprisingly nice show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We just happened upon the show Saturday evening and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It's only offered Saturday at 8pm, but we walked by at 7:45pm and had no problem picking up 3 tickets. My daughter loved the dances and singing and at the end of the show, you have the chance to dance with the bamboo poles...great family fun!

“Cultural tourism”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

The Golden Bell Show is number two to the Water Puppets as an ethnic serve-up for tourists and other culture-seeking sojourners. Its acts are polished and bright, colourful and modernised, but strive for vestiges of ethnic authenticity. This is a bit undermined by the loud bass, but the theatre itself is a surprise and the performers are a joy. If Vietnam had a Bollywood, it would look something like this.
