I found this show quite bizarre, but definitely a must when visiting Vietnam. Suitably for, and enjoyable by, adults and children alike.

Although I did not understand the singing as it was in Vietnamese, the show was simple enough to understand. Very beautiful puppets and entertaining.

It's about $5. It's niches. It's kitschy. It's touristy. But it's a show you won't see anywhere else on the planet. Just do it.

There is no leg room for normal legs at all. Otherwise we really enjoyed the puppet show. It was a little bit like a pantomime, but with singing and amazing costumes. The show is not very long, but it is a great insight to Vietnamese culture and so artistically executed. I still haven't worked out how they do it!

Overall it was pretty good entertainment. It would take a lot of skill to operate the puppets. The puppet show in Hanoi is much better though. It was disappointing that a lot of people were coming into the theatre when the show had already started. Not a bad way to spend an hour at night and was something different to do.
