Vietnam, A Wet Puppet



008An easy walk from our hotel is The Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater almost a must if you visit Saigon.

This is a show that gives an entertaining presentation of Vietnamese life and culture in an interesting form of storytelling.



The art of water puppetry has a steep traditional in local Vietnamese culture and is connected with the spiritual life of the Vietnamese people.

For me, attending any theater production it is always amazing to see the talents of the performers no matter the art form. As a person that never mastered the recorder, I always appreciate this.

The Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater has several shows every evening that last about 50 minutes without an intermission. For about US$7.50 per person it is a worthwhile outing in Ho Chi Minh City.
