About
Enjoy the grand spectacle of traditional Vietnamese water puppetry, with intricately-designed puppets performing over a pool of water Spare your family the stress of waiting for tickets to these popular evening shows Experience legends and stories of Vietnamese life from generations ago With the entrance ticket you have the chance to relish in the fascinating art of a water puppet show, which is closely associated with the spiritual life of Vietnamese people, especially in the countryside. The show’s chosen stage is the surface of a water pool. The puppeteers present their clever skills in managing puppets by long bamboo rods and string mechanism under the surface. A traditional Vietnamese orchestra is an excellent music accompaniment. The puppets depict the story from the songs during the show, which reflects the peaceful life of the Vietnamese countryside, so it is not too difficult to understand it.

Excellent Place Lovely show
Nov 2019
I went to the Water Puppet Show and I was really impressed with the show. It was fun and there were singers and performers on the side of the water basin. Other performers were in the water but you could not see them doing the puppet show. At the end the water performers came out of the water.

Show amazing, but not buying through trip advisor!
Dec 2019 • Solo
Just after finishing booking you are told that there’s no digital ticket, so you must physically go to a defined tour agency on the other side of the city to pick up the ticket. To make it more annoying, the agency office was moving to a new address, so I had to walk further (ok, only two blocks), but then the network wasn’t working yet in the new office, so they couldn’t print the ticket for me. They called the show place and told them that I would arrive with just the reservation from them. At least that worked! But all the walking and wasting time could have been avoided...
The show was in fact amazing, a lot more impressive than I expected. They’re very talented!!!

Puppets and dinner cruise
Dec 2019 • Couples
We would highly recommend Saigon tourist tours. They picked us up, took us to the water puppets. Cute little show, about 45minutes. Very front row be prepared for water to flick up on you. We then did the dinner cruise. Was a nice night. It’s a set menu, not the greatest, but all worth it in the end. Would recommend

Review of our view October 2019
Oct 2019
We had an excellent time watching water puppets (again). It's a unique art form of Vietnam, the musical performance is good and the puppetry is frankly amazing. The show has some funny moments (even if you don't speak Vietnamese), and there are some cool special effects. Loved it.

Good
The show itself is a cultural experience, have some funny elements in it, effort by the performers are commendable but don’t think will go back the second time. Ticket purchase from Klook was fast and was delivered to the hotel (District 1) as promised.

Very traditional show and fantastic music all over the show
Sep 2019
I really love the moving and dancing, the synchronized among the puppets also beautiful and matched with their traditional instruments.
A unique show that is kept lively the whole time. Very colorful and musical. All the people must visit this show. Experience calm musical mystical sequence of activities that Vietnamese perform in a village.
Do not miss this experience if you are in Saigon. It is memorable.

Show was okay, ticketing poor
Oct 2019 • Family
We bought online tickets marketed as mobile tickets no waiting lines etc sold by the operator.
Instead we needed to pick up the tickets at some agency, where we did not even receive the tickets themselves, we got there a voucher to pick the real tickets at the theatre.. what a total crap instead of mobile tickets twice waiting.

The show itself was fine, our little one (4y) enjoyed it. Don't expect to understand any of the story (unless you speak Vietnamese)
