"Best experience in Hanoi! Traditional water puppets complete with folk music smoke lights and fire works. 100,000vdn for a ticket 20,000 extra if you would like to use your camera. Best to go to the theatre to purchase your ticket. "

"Very reasonable price to see real life living art Unforgettable experience in hanoi! A bit hard to follow as the whole plot at the play in is Vietnamese but you can still get what they mean in general. Definitely worth a visit if you wanna get a taste of traditional culture."
