Loved this! Our tickets were delivered to our hotel the day before our show. It was extremely easy and we didn't have to arrange anything. The show was fantastic - while I didn't know everything they were saying it was a great cultural experience. The music and show as great : Highly recommend.
Interesting show. Audio is in Vietnamese.. There is about 20 rows.. We could just about see (all depends on who is sitting infront of you) from the 6th row so i would not suggest sitting any further back. Tickets if bought there is about 100,000VND but drop off and seat allocation made it worth it.
It is convenient to have Viator to deliver the tickets directly to the hotel in order to avoid the long queue. However, you may need to confirm the delivery date/time otherwise they may not leave the tickets to the hotel if you are out. Regarding the Water Puppet Show, I would like to highly recommend to those tourists visiting Hanoi, even I don't understand Vietnamese, the show is really interesting as there are different short stories of the puppets performing inside the water and you may not feel boring for about 45 minutes show. One should not miss !
My tickets were delivered to my hotel- which was a good thing, as the show was pretty much sold out. It was really interesting...music, singing, and water puppets...and the puppeteers, who came out to applause at the end, were mostly female and were all standing waist deep in water. Really enjoyed it...an hour well spent.
