Water puppet theatre
The theatre itself is not traditional—shows used to be performed in rice paddies—and a few bells and whistles have been added these days, but otherwise the hour-long show is the real deal, with live traditional music thrown in as well.

Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre, on the northeastern bank of Hoan Kiem Lake, is certainly not 1,000 years old, nor reminiscent of the traditional environment in which water puppet shows would have taken place, but if you want to see this art form it’s easy accessible, reasonably priced and an authentic performance.
All performances are accompanied by the orchestra and while the vocalists either sing or provide a voiceover in Vietnamese only, you’ll get the gist (though not all of the humour).

Show Time: 15:00 ,16:10,17:20,18:30,20:00 Everyday
