Kick Boxing l Nightlife l Theatre l Theme Parks

There is much more to Bangkok by night than just the glitter of pubs and bars. Exceptionally more popular among tourists are the cultural shows staged by various Thai restaurants. This would be the perfect introduction to Thailand's highly-styled classical dance, accompanied by music played on traditional instruments. Dressed in gorgeous costumes, dancers perform the slow graceful movements that make up the intricate language of classical Thai dance drama. Visually stunning, these shows are a must!

If you are looking for something a little more highbrow, you will not be disappointed. Although Bangkok does not have regular offerings of plays, operas or concerts, performances are nonetheless frequently staged by both local and international artists. The Thailand Cultural Centre and Thailand's National Theatre are the main venues, though leading hotels quite often host visiting artists and smaller theater groups.

Theatrical events in Bangkok include Thai dance and puppet performances, English and Thai language dramas, concerts by visiting international artists, musical performance and infrequently imported mimes and plays. Visitors are advised to consult the English language newspapers, particularly the weekly or daily calendar of events, to confirm the times and dates of current performances.

In the north, the KAD Performing Arts Centre in Chiang Mai includes the lavishly equipped KAD Theatre with a seating capacity of 1,550 and the KAD Playhouse with a seating capacity of 500. The KAD Performing Arts Centre is geared towards staging imported full scale theatrical and musical productions from abroad, performed in the original language, and original Thai dramatic and musical productions.
