Full description
Skip the lines at the Water Puppet Theater with this service that includes show tickets. Choose from several Water Puppet Show times. Experience one of Vietnam's most memorable and traditional art forms during a live 50-minute performance. The art of water puppetry has a distinct Vietnamese identity. It came into existence more than a thousand years ago in the Red River Delta. In its earliest days, water puppetry portrayed the daily life of villagers – in farming and fishing activities, children’s play and in romance. Today the performance also brings in ancient legends and myths.

It was so cute - Amazing stunning beautiful Perfomance

I really really loved the show. The water puppets were so cute and the scenery was so sooo beautiful. I enjoyed the traditional Vietnamese music and you really can't say anything bad about the theater. I think it's totally worth it to visit the show. Ich fand die Show super. Die kleinen Wasserpuppen sind so niedlich und die effekte und das Puppenspiel ist unglaublich süß. Das Bühnenbild war sehr hübsch und die traditionelle vietnamesische Musikuntermalung hat mir auch sehr gut gefallen. Allgemein kann ich wirklich nichts schlechtes über das Theater oder die Vorstellung sagen. Bitte beachtet die Show ist in Vietnamesisch, aber durch das Puppenspiel einfach verständlich und wundervoll anzusehen. Die Show bekommt eine definitive Empfehlung von mir.

Great seats, easy process!

I chose the "First Four Rows" option, and we got seats in the center of the front row. This was definitely worth the extra money, in my opinion, as the puppets are small and the view from the front is so much better. The tickets were waiting for me at my hotel when I checked in the day before. The process worked flawlessly. A great experience!

Overall, the spectacle did not appeal to me. However, I do appreciate the skills of the puppeteers. It was worth seeing.
