this was crazily underwhelming.

beautiful set, great lighting, but very lousy choreography. The show goes on for about 40 mins, with about 6-7 acts, with each act lasting for 5-7 minutes. Painfully boring, the puppets just do the same thing over and over again. If you just stay awake for the just first 30 secs of every act and fall asleep right after, I would say you wouldn't have missed a second of the performance.

there were a couple of times i had stop pinch my thighs to stop myself from bursting out in laughter because some of the actions were just plain ridiculous (sorry if offend anyone but i'm just being brutally honest here).

for USD5 per ticket I would very much rather have spent it on a good authentic Vietnamese meal or maybe even go on an overpriced Cyclo ride.

Don't waste your time.

it was funny and interessting to see but not big entertainment. Puppets are showing different culture traditions from hundreds years ago.

Truly unique, very cleverly presented and some comical elements make this suitable for all ages. Accompanied by traditional live musical ensemble. Volume too loud during some singing.

Good location, opposite Hoan Kiem lake and very easy to access, each show is only 45minutes. The Show is amazing with puppet on water and traditional folksong. please do not miss this show
