Thailand is known for many things, from its resident elephants to its excellent selection of Thai street food. But whether you're a first-time tourist or local traveller, another thing you simply can't miss is their bustling nightlife.

The Siam Niramit Cultural Show is one of the largest stage productions in the world, held both in Bangkok and Phuket. Enjoy a night of exotic costumes, talented performances, and a crash course on Thailand’s history with some gripping storytelling. Plus, the package comes with an all-you-can-eat dinner buffet and a brief meet-and-greet with the show’s main performers after. Khon

Khon, a traditional Thai masked dance, is based on certain parts of the Ramayana Epic — more specifically, on the adventures of Hanuman. This show is frequently held in the Sala Chalermkrung Theatre, the oldest stage in Thailand, located at the edge of Bangkok’s Chinatown. Calypso Cabaret

Armed with colourful costumes and dazzling performances, the Calypso Cabaret is one of the oldest local shows that celebrates human diversity, the spirit of love, and genuine acceptance.
