“nice local cultural show”

Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater

Attraction details
Reviewed December 25, 2013

A different experience in Vietnam.
I didn't put high expectation on it, thus i feel that the USD5-6 entrances was ok.
For the price, please dont compare with Macau show.

Its worth for those who first time visit to HCM city.
There is no storyline, just short scenes. From the scenes, we can see that Vietnam culture is more or less same as Chinese culture, they have dragon dance too.

The show was entertaining, although I had no idea what was happening, as the show is in Vietnamese (with no translation).

To get a better seating, you can book from travel agency. We sat at the first row and have a good view of the show.

This water puppet show is almost better than the perhaps more famous one in Hanoi but here in Saigon the story telling had a good touch of humor!

A must visit , the traditional puppet show of Vietnam. The "Saigon Zoo" has a "Dragon Puppet Show" in the "History Museum".

Thought as this was probably the only time I would visit Vietnam I had to see the famous water puppet show.

I had no expectations or ideas as to what it would be about, and it was... different to say the least! Nothing bad about it, just very different!

There is no storyline, just short scenes. It was really entertaining however I had no idea what was happening as everything was in Vietnamese (with no translation). Part of the fun was working out what was going on though!

It was an interesting show to watch. Entertaining jokes suitable for young children and adults who enjoy traditional music and unique show.
