Overview

The Thang Long Water Puppet show depicts an hour or so of Vietnamese culture via traditional music, song and puppetry. The spectacle is quite unique, though you might have a hard time picking up the nuances since it's performed entirely in Vietnamese. Brochures outlining each act are available free in the lobby, so you'd do well to pick one up on the way in. The price is VND100,000 for first class seats and VND60,000 for second class. Since the difference equates to roughly USD2, you might as well go for the former, which will put you right up in front of the action. The performances are often sold out, so it's highly advisable to book in advance the day before, particularly for groups. -Martin English
