Water Puppet Show
The last puppet show starts at 8pm and ticket has to be purchased by 7.30pm.
If you wish to take pics, buy the 1st class ticket for 40,000 VND. The gift includes a CD of the tunes played during the show.
Take the fan as a souvenier and a broucher after you climb the steps to the theater. It will tell you every scence of the show.
The show is in Vietnamese so you will have to just see the action of the puppet and listen to the singing and musicians that are performing live on the extreme left of the stage.
I thought it would be quite boring to listen to people singing in a foreign language and see just some puppets moves.
But when I was there, it was so entertaining and well worth the 40,000 VND that I have paid (2nd row seats).
Dress Code: causal
Directions: along the lake
