Favorite thing: This puppets you can see in the north part of the country are a really original version of the "normal" puppets.
They started in the rice fields, when floodings let everything under water. Peasants did then puppet shows to spend their time, managing the puppets with long sticks under the water, so they seemed to be floating.
You can see them in a special theatre in Hanoi, near the lake. They have 2 shows each evening, about 1 hour each. It's in vietnamese, but the show is so "visual" that u don't have to understand much of it...
