The entire text is in Vietnamese. For me there was nothing interesting about this show. Waste of time.

Fun musicians & lively show. Theater rather shabby. Water puppet shows are popular in Vietnam, and they were proud of their performance. Would I go again. No !

While the performance was passionate and entertaining, the dialogue is in Vietnamese so it is difficult to fully understand the storyline. Perhaps a synopsis could be provided at the enterance so that we could better appreciate their performance. Still, the artistry of the water puppets is captivating.

Bought 630pm tickets at 450pm. No need to buy a tour. Just get an uber or GrabCar or walk. Tickets just 230,000d. Surprisingly passionate and at 50 minutes a good length of time fir non Vietnamese speakers. Theatre a. It run down but still serviceable . The patina actually adds to the experience.

Unique Experience of play portrayed through some nicely decorated puppets on Water. A truly unique experience of Saigon and Village life during olden days.

Our itinerary just said “Puppet Show”, and we arrived expecting shadow puppets. What a treat that we saw instead these fabulous water puppets, which were very entertaining. I have never seen anything like them before, and it did not matter that the entire show was in Vietnamese. We were given front row seats, which were super (sometimes you can be... More
