On of the highlight of my Hanoi trip . The show was quite artistic .
The puppets were too small for the big auditorium . Remember to get front seats if you want to enjoy the show better .

I booked the show because the local tour guide recommended the show. It was so fun to watch! The show started on time and was one of my favourite activity in Hanoi!

I have no idea what the story line was or what was going on but it was worth the money just to see it.

The music was interesting, and it was very colorful and almost silly. Only about an joy long, but if you go on the weekend that whole square is closed down so its a great area to check out and just hang out and people watch while you wait.
