The Thang Long Water Puppetry Theatre in Hanoi has made the Asian Book of Records as the only Asian theatre performing water puppet shows all 365 days of the year.

Established in 1969, the theatre initially started performing monthly water puppet shows for audiences in 1990, which subsequently changed to weekly and then to daily performances.

Since almost all guided tours around Hanoi included a show at the Thang Long Water Puppetry Theatre, it stays open all year round.

The theatre has also introduced the traditional art form to more than 50 countries across the world.

Two other Vietnamese representatives were also named in the Asian Book of Records this time, namely PhD Le Van Tri, for owning the largest number of invention certificates on biology, and the Vietjet Aviation Joint Stock Company (Vietjet Air), for offering the largest number of cultural activities on flight, in Asia.
