Would recommend as a MUST SEE for anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh City.

Went with my boyfriend and our friend and we all thought that the performance really gave us an insight into Vietnamese culture and we enjoyed every second.

The performance is also very funny, despite being in a different language, as the actions of the puppets transcend language barriers. Also, the music and singing is just wonderful

This was well worth the wait to see this very interesting puppet show and the workman ship is surperb we went on our own but we did see tour groups and the theatre holds a big number it is best to book but I will give a tip book it over in Vietnam you can view the show very well from anywhere in the theatre. The show is in Vietnamese but it was so easy to follow their story lines. Also they give you a program to explain the show. The musicians playing the original instruments and dressing in traditional costume of early Vietnam

We visited Golden Dragon Water Puppet show to see the 5pm show.

We were entertained and amazed. The show is of course completely in Vietnamese which is part of the charm.

The theater is small and I don’t think there really is a bad seat in the place. It was Air conditioned.

Make sure you buy your tickets ahead of time because both shows that mid week day were sold out.

It’s certainly something you can’t see elsewhere! I did enjoy it but felt it needed refining. The audio was a bit circus rather than theatre and being entirely in Vietnamese did make it hard for a largely foreign audience to follow. I would still recommend it

Small theater may want to try and buy tickets in advance. On a cruise ship we took up 80% of theater seats. Bring water no AC. Seats are well used and low.

The story is relating life in a rice patty years ago.

The puppets are on rails moving through the rice patty waters. The puppeteers did a very good job along with the small music ensemble. There is not English dialog to assist in understanding.
