Shadow Puppets

Lonely Planet review

There are two styles of local shadow puppets: năng đà·lung and năng yài . At just under 1m tall, the former feature movable appendages and parts; the latter are nearly life-sized, and lack moving parts. Both are intricately carved from cow hide. Suchart Subsin’s puppet house has a small museum where staff can demonstrate the cutting process and performances for visitors (50B).
