For the price it’s a great little show. Only goes for 45mins with English interpretation. Easily walked from the Ancient town.

Such a great cultural adventure! Had never seen water puppets like this before. There are about 12 mini stories that revolve around life in Vietnam (fishing, children swimming, dragon dances etc). Overall it takes about an hour - well worth it if you're in town!

DO NOT miss this. You don’t need to be a culture buff or art aficionado. This just stands alone as a spectacle of intricate water puppetry, which I had never seen before and is incredibly clever and well choreographed. It last about 45 minutes. DON’T...More

Show is only for about an hour which is enough time for you to enjoy a few little stories. The puppeteers are very clever and the stories have English interpretation so you understand what is happening. Was worth the couple of dollars for something different....More

This show was so cute. They do a very good job telling about the culture in Vietnam. It's especially great for children. It's also about half an hour which is just right.

It is a very interesting evening show that lasts less then an hour which is perfect. It has a few separate shows each telling a different story. You can hear the explanation in English between each show so you can easily follow the acts.

Lovely performance and the kids loved it. 80 k VND for each adult, 40 k VND for each child. A 15 minute walk from the old town, or a small can ride
