“Need to see this”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

I never saw any type of water puppetry so this was a nice experience. The show was fantastic and I highly encourage everyone to see it if you have a chance. It helps you understand vietnamese culture a little better.

“Must see”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Not to be missed cultural experience. Definitely much more enjoyable than the one I went to at Hanoi. My only grouse is that the condition of the seats are left to be desired. You literally sink into the seat when you sit on it. Try to go early in order to get the front seats.

“Funny”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Never seen anything quite like this before. It is a Vienamese tradition dating back almost 1000 years. Children would really get a kick out of this. The show was very entertaining

“Entertaining, unique insight to Vietnam culture”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

The Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theatre is unique to Vietnam and not something that you would normally find in any other city. Situated inside a quaint and original theatre, this could require some renovation. Singers and musicians sit either side of the stage and tell a story musically in Vietnam. Easy to understand in any language, sound effects and emphasis accompanies the lively stories. The puppets are skillfully manipulated in a water pond in the front of the stage. This is very popular with both locals and tourists and definetly worth a visit.

“A jolly hour!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Unusual by Western standards, and therefor interesting.
Very enthusiastic and lively performance by musicians/commentators. A bit incomprehensible in parts, but entertaining - recommended!
