Vietnamese Water Puppet Show, Vietnam

Experience this unique Vietnamese cultural show where hidden puppeteers depict rural scenes with animated and delightful wooden puppets which, in the darkened auditorium, seem to literally walk on water.

One scene involves a fisherman battling his prey which is so realistic that it really looks as though live fish are being used and water-dragons breathe fire as the puppeteers re-enact mythical folklore scenes.
