Brought my mom here for something cultural yet not too crazy and it was perfect. The show was great, the performers were personable, interacting with the audience often. I loved the Disney references. The show has a little bit for everyone. Totally safe to bring kids, parents, etc. Fun for all ages. No idea why this place isn't more popular.... More

My wife wanted to see a Lady boy show and I went along like you do. Well I have to say it was absolutely fabulous. Not tacky, not sleazy but an amazing mixture of modern music , humour, magic and culture. The dance routines are superb, the costumes amazing and the whole show was simply brilliant. The J Lo and...

My husband and I really wanted to see a lady-boy show while in Bangkok but weren't keen on getting hit up aggressively for tips afterwards as many other cabaret shows (Calypso) are known for. The Playhouse Magical Cabaret was fantastic! Even though there were only 4 of us in the audience, the performers were professional, entertaining and interactive. We had... More

We went to the show this evening. The show was great! Costumes, decorations, music, dancers. I would advise to buy ticket to the show from travel agencies in town. We bought from our hotel for 1000 bath each the same evening, and in the theather they charge 1200 bath. If booking in advance from internet agencies i have prices in... More

Where do I begin?! This show was absolutely magical. Definitely a highlight of my trip and I've been in Bangkok for 5 days. From the catchy well known music, the flashy and detailed vibrant costumes; this show did not disappoint. There was humor, horror, fun and just an overall entertaining show! I'd give this a 6 out of 5 stars.... More

I had a great night out at the Playhouse cabaret. It was equal parts funny, sassy, entertaining and awesome. It was everything you would expect from a ladyboy cabaret. The big numbers were impressive and the more individual performances stunning. Be prepared for a bit of interaction with the performers too and a great chance for photos with the cast... More

The show was fantastic! Definitely not to be missed!! All of the acts were really good, the ladies look beautiful and the costumes are incredible! All of the performers really worked so hard, it must have taken ages to learn all of the routines and dances. The Gene/Whitney Houston act is hilarious! And the magic act in the middle was... More

You will leave the theater in a happy mood. Easy to get to- take the MRT (undergroung subway) to Lat Phrao station. Leave via Exit 1. Turn right and curve along to the end of the new Suan Lum Night Bazaar building. On the end is a nice new hotel, you can walk through the lobby. Or, walk outside to... More

Staying in Chatuchak

Neighbourhood Profile
Chatuchak
Every weekend, thousands of tourists make their way up to this Northern Bangkok suburb to get lost in an enormous maze of shops at the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Home to almost 10,000 vendors, you’ll find everything from vintage sneakers to comic books and Thai handicrafts being sold here. You name it, Chatuchack probably sells it. The market is a great place to pick up souvenirs, but be sure to bargain for a good price. After a day of shopping and strolling around, the lush green lanes of Chatuchak Park are a welcome relief.
