It was so entertaining! The show lasted around one hour, it was in vietnamese but it was easy to understand the story lines. You should try!! :) The ticked costed 230 000 wnd per person. Totally worth it!

Rip off! Worst water puppet show in Vietnam at more than double the price of other much better shows! I had watched the water puppet show in Hanoi, Hoi An and this one at Ho Chi Minh. I was shocked to find out the ticket price is 230k which is more than double the other 2 shows. The shows at... More

We really enjoyed this (and I definitely did not expect to). Yes it's ok Vietnamese but it's easy to understand, and find funny. The kids on the front row loved it, I would definitely recommend it for children. One main thing - we were passing the day before and just went and bought two tickets from the booth for 460000d....

This was a fun little show, surprising and interesting. It kept my attention throughout and I often drift easily into distraction. Ive noticed that the major complaint is that the show was not in English, however, there is very little need for it in this kind of show. Do not let that discourage you from enjoying this experience

Great performance. It is in Vietnamese language but very understandable even if you are not familiar with culture.

The best thing we saw in Ho Chi Minh city. Very simple stories but expertly crafted choreography with wonderful traditional music and singers.

We booked this show for 200,000 dong each Fantastic 50min show. We experienced both shows in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi and we thought this was a far better show but it was twice the price We booked the tickets direct at the puppet show. There is a ticket office with a glass window to the right We went to... More

A great show worth attending. Live music and narration by the musicians. Comfortable seating in a good size theatre.
