We really enjoyed the water puppet show - what a unique thing to see! The show is just under and hour and is in a cute little theatre. I reserved seats via email a month in advance which meant we ended up with the front row - so cool! Worth taking the time to do.

Really enjoyed the water puppet show. Performance was much, much better than expected and very enjoyable. Didn’t get the audio guide but each part of the show had a different theme so although we didn’t understand the story it was great. We bought tickets 2 days in advance from the box office and got 200k dong tickets in the second row. Would advise being in the first few rows if you can get tickets as you’d be quite a way back if you were right at the back of the theatre considering the puppets are quite small. Definitely a must do experience in Hanoi

Okay show. Interesting, although I did not understand a single thing. Subtitles would have been useful. It seemed to be a story that has comedy but not too good that it could have been understood even without language.
I think they have an audio guide but not sure if that would have been very helpful.
It was a unique puppet show that's for sure.

Wonderful experience. Beautifully told and musicians elegant. Dories of Vietnamese culture. Really glad I went. Very busy so need to buy tickets in advance. Think they should include translation headphones for those buying most expensive tickets

Buy tickets there and then.. go 1 hour before the show, as there is a lake nearby and shapes too.. lunch or dinner places in walking distance..
Under water puppet show is one of its kind.. you will be left amazed on how they are doing it..

It was the first time that we watched the water puppet show and were amazed at the excellent performance done by the artists. Not surprising of the great turn up of tourists from all over the world at the show. Very well done indeed!

So unique! My only regret is that I didn't rent the Eglish translation device so I could listen to the commentary. Even without it, it was funny. The musicians and singers who accompanied the performance were an added cultural bonus.

A wonderful and traditional Vietnamese experience. At first sight this may seem like a childrens show but the night we attended there were very few children present. Although not necessary we did hire translation devices which explained the history behind the stories. Great musicians and puppet operators. Great value for money and not to be missed when in Hanoi.

The performance is very wonderful and meaningful, the ticket price at the theater is from 100000 to 200000VND. The language of the show is Vietnamese. there is device translation service and you have to pay for it. The show is a combination of musical instruments and puppets

this is my 2nd time to Hanoi and also my 2nd time watching water puppet show. The artists manipulated the puppets very skillfully. Fortunately, this time I rented a language interpreter to understand this special performance. I highly recommend renting this device.
