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.

    It's an interesting way to understand the Vietnamese culture. Though it is performed in Vietnamese, it has added originality to the performance. Definitely worth watching.

  • Kim Feng 12 Aug 2018
    Nice experience and good story but didn’t know the language.
  • John Erwin 9 Aug 2018
    The theater play itself was hilarious! It was in Vietnamese language but you could easily get the gist of the story. Regarding Klook service: I have chosen the option to pick up the ticket at the partner company of klook. However upon our arrival on the location, they said that it was for delivery on our hotel. So we've waited. We called multiple times for follow up. It came late around 4:00 PM and the show will start at 5:00 PM!!! Luckily there's Grab.

    The puppet show is only in Vietnamese language, which made it hard for foreigners to understand. Quite boring for me as I do not know what was going on.
