Overview
Water puppetry is a uniquely Vietnamese artform, and a must-do when in Hanoi. But the Thang Long Water Puppet Theater, one of the city’s top performance venues, doesn’t offer online booking. Skip the hassles of waiting in line—and perhaps missing out on a show altogether—by prebooking first class tickets for your preferred performance. A courier will deliver them to reception at your central Hanoi hotel.

    Thang Long Water Puppet
    Stop: 50 minutes - Admission included
    Water Puppetry is a traditional art form with distinctive culture identity of Vietnam. It came into existence, developed and diversified over a thousand years ago in the Red River Delta. Thanks to unique performances on the water, this puppetry art is famous and highly appreciated all over the world. In early days, water puppetry showed the daily life of villagers such as farming, fishing, romance and children playing. Now, the topics of the plays are also picked from ancient legends, myths and historic stages. Book your tickets, then the tickets and program flyer, complete with the details of program, will be delivered to your hotel. Just bring your tickets and enjoy the show.

The tickets were delivered to our hotel as promised, and we had excellent 2nd row seats, center stage. Enjoyed everything about the show: an interesting, unique form of entertainment; the musicians/singers were talented; overall, this was well worth doing.

Dear Yanniszaranis, Thank you for your nice words about our show in Hanoi. Water Puppet Show has been famous in Vietnam from the XI century with the wet rice culture. Today's Vietnamese water puppetry is a unique variation on the ancient Asian puppet tradition. The theme of the skits is rural and has a strong reference to Vietnamese folklore. It tells of day-to-day living in rural Vietnam and Vietnamese folk tales that are told by grandparents to their grandchildren. Stories of the harvest, of fishing and of festivals are highlighted. Legends and national history are also told through short skits. Many of the skits, especially those involving the tales of day-to-day living, often have a humorous twist. CharmingVietnamTravel always try our best to give the tourists unforgettable moments throught good seats. We do hope to see you again in Hanoi to introduce more about Vietnamese culture. Best regards, Selena A member of Charming Vietnam Travel
