What travelers say:

A great way to experience some Vietnamese culture. You don’t need to understand the language to appreciate the show itself. The techniques in it are very surprising. This is an interesting phenomenon. Be sure to sit as close to the stage as possible-some people are more interested in recording the entire performance, rather than watching it with your eyes, and will not hinder your point of view to let you do this! I didn’t plan to watch the water puppet show, but I saw that TripAdvisor’s rating was very high, and I saw that it was a traditional Vietnamese performance. I just took a look. Maybe I didn’t expect too much. Instead, I thought it was interesting and good. Although I spoke Vietnamese, However, you can take a brochure before entering the venue, with a brief introduction to the repertoire, and accompanied by live music. It is not bad, it is recommended to take a look.

Additional Information

Introduction

Located in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1, the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater is Saigon's premier venue for traditional Vietnamese water puppet performance. Shows tend to depict the culture, traditions, and folklore prevalent in Vietnamese life. Performed in Vietnamese, the actions and plot are not hard for foreign audiences to understand. Using added music and effects, water puppetry is a thoroughly entertaining art form and a Vietnamese cultural highlight.
