Hi all,
Does anybody know if it’s possible to get same day tickets for Hanoi’s Water Puppets Show upon arrival, even if it is by paying a higher rate to a particular ticket office or to a wise Hanoi fellow? As I’ll arrive to Hanoi at 4pm and leave the following morning.
Many thanks in advance, cheers!

Ortique,
I walked up to the box office in the afternoon for that night's performance. There are several shows each night and you should be able to get a seat. Most hotels and travel shops offer water puppet tickets with a small service charge. Ask when you check in.

There are not any bad seats, but I recommend getting the closest seat to the water that is available. It is an unique show and worth the time/expense to go. I loved it and will see it again when I am in HaNoi on my next trip.

Hi, we did the same as Vegas. We went to the box office in the morning and saw a show about 6 pm. Well worth a visit and very enjoyable.

Yes, i just walked there and get the ticket before lunch time and come back to see the show in the evening. It's a great show. Try a cyclo around Hoan Kiam Lake too. i paid $1 for one round. exiting experience..
