What To Expect

Originating in the rice paddies of the Red River Delta in North Vietnam, traditional water puppet plays remain one of the most popular draws for travellers in Ho Chi Minh City. If you want to truly immerse yourself in the local culture of Vietnam’s largest city, then catch a show at the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater! Located in Tao Dan Park, the theater offers nightly shows that are often sold out due to limited seating. You can buy your tickets in advance and have them delivered to your hotel or you can pick them up at your convenience. On the day of your selected show, you will be greeted by ushers dressed in áo dài or traditional silk tunic by the theater doors. The shows are performed entirely in Vietnamese but the puppet gestures and accompanying music are captivating even to foreign audiences. The orchestra is often positioned to one side of the stage adding in sound effects and playing traditional music using drums, wooden bells, horns, bamboo flutes and cymbals as the dragons, fairies and other ornamental figures dance across the water stage. Most of the shows recount Vietnamese folk tales, legends, and significant seasonal events, like the celebration of the rice harvest, depicted in a humorous fashion.

    Located near the Independence Palace, show was entertaining but a little short (45 minutes) compared to the one in Hanoi Recommended for first timer and family with children

    klook agent sent my ticket at the hotel.. during my checked in the receptionist gave the ticket to me.. I enjoyed the show despite language barrier ... I suggested to stay at District 1..about 15 minutes to walk to the theater from my hotel..

    Couldn't understand a word but it was unnecessary to enjoy the great show with my 5-year and 1-year kids. The elder one was so into it. I wish the chairs were a bit more comfortable and the AC was less strong so you don't feel cold inside.

    A one of a kind unique experience! Story told using water puppetry as a medium. The traditional Vietnamese musicians and puppeteers were great. Theatre was clean and personnel were friendly and accommodating. Had a great time with my family.

    Our tickets were already at the hotel when we arrived HCMC. The show was fun. Our seats were way back though where seats weren't comfortable. =( But overall, I'm happy I didn't have any problems with this activity.
