The Water Puppet Theatre is one of Hanoi’s most famous attractions and a cultural must- see when staying in Hanoi.

The emergence of the Water Puppet Theatre leads far back into the 11th century where rice paddy fields were flooded and farmers entertained their friends by standing in the waist-deep water with the puppets performing over the water. Today the puppets are moved from puppeteers behind a screen using large rods.
