“afternoon seeing the water puppets”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Not to be missed. After reading so much history about the water puppets it was great to finally see the show.
Little cost to see show, seating comfortable.
The performers top class

“Well worth a visit...if you buy anything from the gift stand, make sure you get change!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Great experience- fun to watch and well worth the small admission fee. The lady at the gift stand after the show pocketed our change, but aside from (or partially because of)that it was a good evening's entertainment.

“Water puppet theater Hanoi”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Both my wife and myself found this a little boring and it seemed to drag on a little bit to long for us, the seating is not very comfortable and rather cramped, I am six feet four and my knees were pressed firmly against the seat in front and the seats are quite low also, I wouldn't say don't go but it wasn't for us.

“Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The Water Puppet Theatre is a bit cheesy but it is a). unique and b). somewhere cool to sit and relax away from the oppressive heat experienced outside. Admission is by pre-booked ticket, not too expensive.
