Thang Long Water Puppet Theater


Thang Long Water Puppet Theater

57B Dinh Tien Hoang, Hanoi

Water puppetry is an ancient storytelling art in Vietnam, where the puppets perform on water. As a cultural experience, this theatre in central Hanoi provides a great show for people of all ages. There is no English translation, but simply seeing the art form and colorful puppets in action opens a curtain so to speak on a typical Vietnamese activity.

The shows are short — usually less than an hour — so even the youngest kids who might get fidgety should be able to hang on.


Show times vary.

Things to Know

A great souvenir for the kids, or the entire family, might be a puppet of your own, for sale in the lobby after the show.
