This is worth seeing, lasting appox 45 minutes the Puppets, music and Instruments really do get you into Vietnamese culture / story telling. Inexpensive about 3 GBP each I am so glad we made the effort. The theatre is not out of the way either as it is near the lake and busy shopping area. Having said that all Hanoi is busy!

If you have never seen water puppets before it is really worth the time to go to this short one hour show. Its a nice theater in the middle of the old section of Hanoi and the show is very well done. Recommend getting seats closer to the front (reserved seating available).

I like the story of the water puppet show. It helped me understand the culture of the country. The puppetry was interesting and I still don't really know how they did it. It was worth the 100,000 dong.

This is really very beautiful. Puppets on the water: diving, fighting, dancing, playing with fire,... With a live band singing and playing traditional music. If you have a chair on the right side of the theatre–watching the scene- you ‘ll have the best view on orchestra and puppets. It is a must not only for tourists. You can buy the tickets simply at the boxofffice of the theatre.
