What To Expect

Vietnamese water puppetry is a tradition that dates back as far as the 11th century. Today, visitors to Ho Chi Minh City can witness this age-old practice right in the heart of the city, at the 5 star Rex Hotel! Simply show your voucher to the concierge or reception at the hotel and a friendly staff member will take you to the performance space - an open air amphitheatre that gives you unobstructed views of the stage from an elevated platform. Watch the unique show where puppeteers immerse themselves in the waters as they use their strong arms to control the puppets and tell the stories of legends, as well as the life of the Vietnamese people in the countryside. This taste of Vietnamese culture and tradition will be a fun experience for people of all ages!

    interesting and very clever but wasn't for us. Good thing it was only for an hour.
  • Vicente 10 Sep 2018
    Though the entire show in local dialect, you can understand the whole show thru their actions. I was amazed on how the artist maintain their breath, considering that some of them are underwater. Very good show.

    I didn't like it so much. All the dialogues are in Vietnamese and it's complicated to follow.

    My second time watching it but I’m giving it a single star, despite the show being an okay one. Just like the first time I was there, the hotel staff was definitely clueless about my booking. They took my phone away with them trying to double check my booking while I was told to wait. I was repeatedly asked if I have paid, up to the time when the show was starting. One lady staff asked me to email her the voucher from Klook. Even after that, I was still asked if I have paid. After showing the confirmation email from the tour company for the second time, another lady staff finally told me that there was a miscommunication between the tour company and the hotel. Well, that shouldn’t be made my problem, should it? Bad experience!

    The Water Puppet show is ok, nothing really spectacular though a different experience. The cultural show is so bad that almost half of the audience went away even before the half of the whole performance.
  • Noora Atikah 9 Mar 2018
    It was such a lovely experience! There were two parts of the show, with the second part being the water puppet show. First part had cultural music and dances in it. I am certainly impressed by the puppeteers’ skills! A good way to have a relaxing end of a day in HCM. Very recommended!

    A truly cultural experience. It’s amusing to find the strong Chinese influence on Vietnamese culture. I particularly enjoyed the stone musical instrument performance which was both rustic and cool. The water puppet show itself, though peformed wholly in Vietnamese language was no less entertaining. This is one show you don’t wanna miss!

    it was indeed a different experience and it was nice knowing a little vietnamese culture:)

    The event is very traditional, and it should be more exciting if you add some innovative elements.
