Water puppet show is something very different and typical for Viet Nam. I really recommend to visit it. We didn’t buy ticket in advance. You can do it at the entrance just before the show. It is an open air theatre, so during winter bring a jacket. There is not specific seat number, so for those who would like to get central close to the stage seat I recommend to come 15-20 min earlier.

INCREDIBLE! The show was marvelous and transported me to another world. It was so great to have some English narration to help understand Vietnamese culture better. This is fantastic for all ages alike and had a lot of "woah" moments in the crowd. The performances were very enticing and the puppets were displayed beautifully. I would highly recommend this and if I had another night in Hoi An I would see it again. Compliments to the artists and organizers!

FYI: you can preorder your tickets and get seats in the first row but the outdoor theater is small enough that you can see the stage vividly- even when up the back so this shouldn't be a issue. Preordering is ideal though because the show can fill up quickly. I had to book 3 days in advance as the shows had been sold out (and I can understand why- it's fantastic!).

We have visited the show with 2 kids (3 and 6 years old). And we are happy that we made it. The show is around 40-60 min and consists of 2-5 min little shows. Children were excited and interested to see different characters.
We have pre-booked the tickets in advance through hotel and got places on the first row.
Please note that it is good to bring mosquito repellent😊

Our booking as cancelled. Unfortunately there was no prior notification of this from Tripadviser with whom we had booked and who, up until a few hours before the performance were sending notifications encouraging us to download our tickets which we had printed off when booking. Our hotel were the ones to advise us that the performance was cancelled.
POOR PERFORMANCE TRIPADVISER. Presumably you will be processing a refund.

This was a really fun activity. We have seen other water puppet shows but this one in Hoi An was the best. Our tickets gave us front row seats. The stories the puppets told were all in Vietnamese but easy to follow. The puppets were beautiful. If you’ve never been to a water puppet show, this would be a great one to visit.

We arrived at the venue and were met with a sign starting that the performance was cancelled. My granddaughter was very disappointed. We did not receive any advance notification or email. There was no ticket office on site. There was no offer to re-book.

I have requested a full refund from the venue and from Trip Advisor. Neither has responded.

I will never book another event through Trip Advisor.

Great cultural experience, nice to chill out and watch for 45 min. Definitely recommend! (Skip the line gets you a front row seat apparently.)

It was an easy process, and a great show! I think this is a great alternative to other shows in the bigger cities and has their own local twist.

Our kids are 15 through 21 and we wondered how they would enjoy this. Well, they had a good goggle whilst watching this show. Nicely put together and the bonus of booking through TripAdvisor gave us great reserved seats.

Whilst the dialogue is in Vietnamese, the program and sections between each act are in English so we understood everything.

Very clever and well worth it for the cheap price.

Short and sweet
This show lasts about 1 .5 hours and the program includes 12 scenes that represent life for the farmers in Vietnam.

This is like a water version of a Punch and Judy show. Don't take it seriously and you will totally enjoy.
This is just a short show 45 minutes and is ideal. Tells you a list of short stories through the water puppets. Mos
