“Interesting Experience with a Historical Twist”

This was an interesting stop while we were in HCMC. We walked up and got tickets just as the show was starting. It's pretty cheap, and the show is about 45 minutes long.

It was fun to watch and they described some of the different 'tribes' and the history of Vietnam. I see that many people complained that it was only in Vietnamese (yes it was), but they had screens up with English translations, so we always knew what was going on.

Worth it - if only to escape the heat and sit in air con!!

I enjoyed the show, including the music, and would recommend it. it is unique to Saigon, and although pretty monotonous, it is still interesting to see. the seats are rather cramped, but as its a small theatre, everyone has a good view, though of course closer to the front is better.

Don't do it. I know it's history, but thats where it should be, consigned to history. Good air-cond in there though!

If you have time on your hands..this is a place you may consider to add in your agenda in Siagon. The puppet show is old heritage and interesting technique. The kids are going to enjoy for sure.....the only downside ....the show is primarily in Vietnamese so difficult to follow and understand.
