The 20min complimentary show in the traditional theater is excellent! However never buy ticket for the “special show” at 5:30pm located at the performance house of traditional arts!! First, they told us the show is 1 hour it turned out only 30min. Secondly, the show almost 80% the same as complimentary one. Thirdly, the carpet n the seats are very dirty and smelly! The stage is small too.

We paid vn100,000 for each person. I feel like being cheated!

The seating is not comfortable but I loved the performance and the audience was encouraged to participate. There were a number of short performances to cater for a variety of tastes.

We were 4 of 7 in the audience when we went - there were more performers. Kids liked the show, and we thought it was interesting to see and hear some of the Vietnamese culture. It seems like it needs quite a bit of a facelift though. Was only about a 45 minute show, but I wouldn't have wanted more than that. A decent, touristy exposure to the music and a bit of Vietnamese culture.

The theatre is set in an old wooden building and relatively small. We dropped there in the morning and enjoyed a short performances of traditional dances and music.. There was also a Vietnamese Bingo game with participation of the audience.. where to my surprise, I won a small prise..

The show was a good mix of song and dance, not too long and not too complicated. Amazing sounds (amplifier assisted) from such simple instruments. Dances were basic and graceful.
