It is performed in a pool of water with the water surface being the stage. The puppeteers stand behind a screen and control the puppets using long bamboo rods and string mechanisms hidden beneath the water surface. A traditional Vietnamese orchestra provides accompanying background music. Singers originating from north Vietnam sing songs which tell the story being acted out by the puppets which are carved out of wood.

The shows typically last for one hour and offer a colorful way to enjoy an ancient tradition.

The activity lasted only for a few hours, but I had a great, great time. The cyclo ride on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City was fun and thrilling. The puppet show was fully delivered in Vietnamese, but I could still understand the storyline and it's very entertaining. The dinner was delicious and just enough for me, and the cruise at Saigon River was relaxing + amazing.

We booked the Saigon Cultural Evening Tour, Water Puppet Show, Dinner Cruise. We had a great time. We showed up here at 5:30 as instructed. After waiting about 15 minutes they put us in cyclos to the water puppet theater which was a fun ride in itself. Riding in the front of one of these bike through Ho Chi Minh traffic is an experience we will not soon forget. Load of fun. When we arrived at the theater they seated us right away and after about 15 minutes the show started. I think it lasted about 45 minutes. It was very cute and lots of fun with live musicians playing and singing through the show. It was very amusing. After this our guide Van led us to a van parked out front and we headed for the river front in district 4. We were seated in excellent seats by the window on the boat and it was quite an elegant affair with music, dancers, a beautiful water front cruise and a great dinner. There were several courses to the dinner and all were great. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It is quite an enjoyable experience.

It was a fun experience and we really enjoyed it a lot. The pick up is very on time and friendly staffs. We have no regret for choosing this. We will choose to purchase this again if we are going back to Vietnam for travel in the future. The food provided was not that bad either and majority is Vietnamese food.
