Reviewed March 11, 2013

We were quite enjoyed the show from the begin until the end. It might be a little bit difficult to understand the show due to different background. It was truly delightful from the traditional music to the delightful puppets and stories

So glad we made it to the puppet show. It's it so well done, entertaining and colourful. Only 50 minutes which goes quickly. Be sure to include this in your visit to Saigon

“can skip it”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This was my first visit ti HCMC, so we went to see this cultural event. Saw another one in the park in Hanoi which was way nicer (and free). So, if you haven't seen such before maybe you should go, otherwise definitely skip it.

“Very Good”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

There is only so long you can watch waterpuppets in a language you are not familiar with so the 50 mins of this show was just about right.
It was an enjoyable and cheap way to spend an evening and the skill of the puppeteers/musicians is impressive.
