Full description
Enjoy a performance of fascinating Vietnamese art during a traditional 45-minute water puppet show. The stories told with water puppets are closely associated with the spiritual life of Vietnamese people, especially in the countryside. The stage for the show is the surface of a water pool. Puppeteers demonstrate their clever skills by managing puppets with long bamboo rods and a string mechanism under the surface of the water. A traditional Vietnamese orchestra provides musical accompaniment. The puppets act out the stories told by the songs, which reflect the peaceful life of the Vietnamese countryside.

Booked online and sent e-ticket, so great we thought, but was refused entry, and told to take our E-TICKET to booking office and collect ticket, so but somebody stopped me looked at my e-ticket and handed be a ticket VERY CONFUSING. The show is well worth the money.....

It was very easy to book the tickets. I received an email with the confirmation booking, showed this to the ticket office at the event, exactly as the email said. Within seconds I had my entry ticket. The show was very cultural, funny and exciting. Would highly recommend when you are in Saigon.

The ticket could only be collected 15mins before show started. I would suggest that ticket should be able to be collected at any time provided the counter is open. The show was entertaining and creative. I thanks all the entertainers esp to those playing the puppets as they need to be in the water for an hour. I guess the show will be informative if I could understand the language. If they would like the foreigners to understand the dialog and at the same time they want to retain the originality of the show, perhaps they should consider adding a screen on top or below the stage to display the subtitle. Please come early or atleast on time so that you wont be disrupting other audiences
