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 enjoyed water puppet show a lot! It was so interesting & funny.
  • Stella 25 Nov 2018
    Tickets were delivered to my hotel so upon check-in, the receptionist handed the tickets to me. I came to this show with low expectation but it was better than I expected. All was good but the chair was slightly uncomfortable.
  • Ling Nga 22 Nov 2018
    Wonderful show although we didn’t understand a single word. Suitable for everyone. Easy to redeem and they delivered your vouchers to the hotel!
  • Xiao Shi 18 Nov 2018
    We sat at the 2nd row and had very close up view of the puppets. Interesting show and effect, but didnt understand fully as it was all in vietnamese. The seats were very worn out as well. Otherwise very good experience which we couldnt see in other countries.
  • dhanilie 18 Nov 2018
    we really enjoyed the show. we might not understand the language but the puppets tell it all.
  • Kiat Loong 17 Nov 2018
    Great experience for tourists. Location is in District 1.
  • Indranil 13 Nov 2018
    One of the best things to do while in Vietnam. The show starts sharp on time and is for around 45-50 minutes. we took the 5pm show but there are other shows available as well
  • Woan Cheng 10 Nov 2018
    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. :)
