Water puppet theater schedule

by Seejay

What is the daily schedule for water puppet theater and how difficult is it to obtain tickets? Should I reserve tickets in advance of my trip in Hanoi Dec 26?

Re: Water puppet theater schedule

by daawgon

I have not personally seen the puppets, but I just read a report over at TA that said how boring they were!

Re: Water puppet theater schedule

I visited Thang Long Puppet Theatre a couple of weeks ago. I booked my ticket one day in advance, but the show (at 5.15pm) wasn't sold out.

Homepage : www.thanglongwaterpuppet.org
E-mail : thanglongwpt@fpt.vn

But I also found the show very boring... and fell asleep towards the end...

Kind regards,

We went to the Municipal Water Puppet Theatre and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Bought tickets that morning after exploring Hoan Kiem Lake. You can pay a bit more to take photographs and/or video.
Shows are from 4pm, 5.15pm, 6.30pm, 8pm and 9.15pm.

Apart from Thang Long wps, you have another option: National WPS theater. It located in 361 Truong Chinh, Dong Da district, Hanoi.
Advantage: the show at 17'00 is awesome, very interesting. It combines installation art with water puppetry art to present daily life of Vnamese farmers
Ticket is often available thus dont have to book in advance.

Disadvantage: location which is far away from city centre. Taxi cost about 70.000 d from Hoan Kiem Lake.

No need to pre-book tickets, just turn up a couple of hours prior to the show you wish to attend. I think there is about 3 shows a day, if my memory serves me correctly. Check my Hanoi pages out for further details. :-)

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Wedding photos

by ValbyDK

In Hanoi (and Vietnam in general) it is a tradition to have wedding photos taken at various famous places around town. Therefore, it is very common to see a wedding couple outside temples, museums and so on.

You always get a big smile and a thank you in return when you congrat them.

Hanoi City : Watching Old Folks at HoAnKiem Lake

by bpacker

Observe the old folks around Ho An Kiem Lake if you can. Do it discretely and with respect of course. You can catch them dancing tai chi, reading or playing chess in groups.

A small old man reads in solitude at Ngoc Son Temple. Clad against the cold only in a wolly warm Russian Hat and thin blue-striped pajamas.

Where:Ho An Kiem Lake, Ngoc Son Temple.

Buying bags

by stardeenaw about Go to Dinh Tien Hoang Street

If you are thinking of buying haversack and duffle bags, go to Dinh Tien Hoang, the street where the Water Puppet Theatre is.

The bag vendors packed the whole street. Best time to visit is late afternoon onwards, by then all the shops will be open.

Although they are counterfeit, the quality is good. haversack and duffle bags Jack Wolfskin haversack 240,000 VND
Mini deuter bagpack 80,000 VND

Getting around Hanoi by bus

by emmanue113

Try getting around Hanoi by bus. Its only VND3000-5000 per ride.

The most useful is bus no.9 that goes to Ho Chin Minh Museum every 15 min or so (but be sure to say 'Ho Chin Minh' to the bus driver to confirm you're taking the correct bus). You can take the bus from Boho station at Hoen Kiem Lake, opposite the Tourist Information Centre.

Some useful sites:

- bus routes

- HanoiBus' homepage

- for interactive bus map

Authentic cuisine and great value for money

by JJLUK about Little Hanoi

This great value restaurant in the Old Town which has a better known cafe offshoot close to Hoan Kiem Lake offers a very good introduction to Vietnamese cuisine. However, beware that there is another restaurant very close by purporting to be Little Hanoi (you need to continue past this fake to the real deal). The restaurant is popular with Backpackers/Travellers with young children. Service is friendly but can be a little slow. The soup and all things pork.
