Great setting and acrobatics, cruel for wild animals

Difficult what to think about this circus theater. I love the setting of an old communist circus temple. The theatre is big with 1500 seats, lighting is great, show is long and... read more

Difficult what to think about this circus theater. I love the setting of an old communist circus temple. The theatre is big with 1500 seats, lighting is great, show is long and entrance fee is very low (from 120.000 at daytime to 150.000 or 200.000 in the evening). We really saw some perfect and awesome acrobatic acts here, we've never... More

If you feel that circus became more technology and visual tricks than a show; Well this circus will get you back in time with the traditional clowns, jugglers, and the animals (dogs, monkeys, bears, ostriches, snakes and elephant) Kids will love it, very authentic show.

On Sunday afternoon if you tired of around with your children, it is a perfect place to stop for a while. A 75 minutes show with all the ingredients that a circus can showcase. At least, you can have a good and cheap family break. Just around, there a huge park too.

We walked from Thong nhat park to this circus. We catched the last 15min of the show. Only managed to watch snake and elephant sessions. Kids loved the show very much.

This is the Vietnam National Circus housed in it's own permanent building. Varied, high talent and entertaining acts including an elephant. I live in Hanoi and I saw only locals visiting - no tourists. It should be considered an important tourist stop for young and old.

You will see amazing performances of artists from Vietnam Circus Federation, not only magical trick and animal performance for children but also skillful performances. I think this is a cultural activity you should come to see in Hanoi.

Children said this was one of their favorite things in Hanoi. They excitedly watched the animals and the people, although the performance was all in Vietnamese and the majority of people were locals. The theatre was about 90% full on the Sunday morning 10:30 show. Apparently the Sunday morning shows are more geared towards children and are also cheaper than... More

Traditional circus with clowns, animals and acrobatics. Found it entertaining and our children enjoyed the break from sightseeing. Some concern about the treatment of the animals within the show.

It was a quick taxi ride from Old Quarters, our hotel already pre-booked the circus tickets for us. The performance was all in Vietnamese, and most of the audience were locals too. Still, we had a good and enjoyable time at the circus. The shows and performances were not too bad, though the acrobatic and clown performances (bulk of the... More

The show was really good and the whole family enjoyed. The only thing I didn`t like is, that there was bears and apes in the show. Especially the bears didn`t look so well :(. I hope I`m wrong with my feelings. But all other shows were excellent! Fee was only 100 000 dong.
