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.

    I liked the show very much as it was entertaining however the local operator did not deliver the tickets to my hotel by 1-2 days before the show per stated in the Klook voucher’s redemption procedure hence it was a dampener. I had to ask the hotel front desk staff to call them to deliver the tickets to my hotel numerous times. I only got my tickets few hours before the show.

    It was a great show, but the theater was a little old. :) still a great and entertaining show though. :)
  • Harvey Gale 3 Nov 2018
    The show was in Vietnamese language but it was still worth it! The show was very funny and good for kids. Although, please note that this was done in one of the old theaters in the city centre.
  • Karen Nicole 2 Nov 2018
    It was a fun experience. It was entertaining even though it's in Vietnamese. It has the traditiona yet professional vibe. The theater was old but was perfect for the type of show. My friends and I had a great laugh and was amazed by the performers, both the musicians and the puppet masters!
  • Kevin Max 1 Nov 2018
    what a unique experience. I have truly enjoyed this very entertaining water puppet show. This is certainly without any doubt a MUST DO when a visitor is in Saigon. One of the best performances I have ever seen even though not one word was understood as everything is entirely in vietnamese. Thanks again!

    hassle free booking. the pick up from agent is just a receipt, you need to produce and exchange the receipt at the venue ticket booth for show tickets. show was fantastic. even though in Vietnamese you still can make out the gist.
