Water Puppet Show in Ho Chi Minh City
Water Puppet Show

Traditional Vietnamese Water Puppet Shows remain one of the cultural draws for most travellers to Ho Chi Minh City. The idea behind the Water Puppet Show originates in the sodden rice paddies of the Red River Delta in North Vietnam, depicting the culture, traditions and folklore of Vietnamese life. Visitors are entertained by puppets acting on a 'stage' of water accompanied by live old-fashioned music played on authentic instruments. In Ho Chi Minh city, the two most popular places to see a water puppet show are the Golden Dragon Water Puppetry Theatre and the Vietnam History Museum.
