Loved the Thang Long puppet show. The singing and story lines was easy to follow and didn’t require a translated version to listen too. We had a little difficult seeing and my son was unable to see over the heads of other audience members. To avoid this I recommend getting a seat in the front of the theatre. Purchase of tickets was easy- I went by two hours before the show and purchased at the theatre. A lot cheaper this way then doing it online or through tour company and you also can select your seats. Enjoy

We sat in the second row center and were able to get a few good photos of the amazing water puppet show. We didn't get the audio headphones so I can't comment on that. However, the show is easy to follow so I don't feel it is necessary to pay extra for the English commentary. I would just say go and enjoy! Each vignette is very short. I would suggest having your hotel book you the best possible seats in the theater as soon as you know what evening you want to go. It was nice to be so close!

We were a little doubtful about this theatre but glad that we decided to see it. Very special and interesting tradition. We liked the music. The show is fun!

This was an hour happily spent. The music was excellent (especially the dan bau), and the puppets eloquent in the way the best puppets might be. I feel a bit sad for the reviewers who feel this should be updated - why? Or that there aren't any locals here. Sit back and enjoy it for what it is - gentle fun. And enjoy it now, before someone convinces the performers they need a few CGI.

I understand that it has cultural significance, but it is a low end Disney experience. Puppets...in the water...with music. Pass.
