The ‘Theatre Des Marionnettes Dur L’eau’ is situated at the north-eastern tip of Hoan Kiem Lake and the venue for traditional water puppetry – one of those experiences high on the agenda for Hanoi visitors. Water puppetry is a traditional Vietnamese art form widely practiced throughout the ages.

We bought our tickets for an evening performance earlier in the day while strolling around Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter. It is possible to take photographs and videos of the performance at an additional fee.

Worth it? Will not be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed the experience. If you have claustrophobic tendencies, it may feel a bit jam-packed. Glad I went.
