We had a lovely evening at the old Chiang Mai cultural center where we were treated with a delicious typical dinner and a nice display of traditional dances and music. Maybe a bit pricey, but definitely worth it.

So much food and they just keep bringing more. I didnt realise that there was so many different tribal villages that have their own dances and culture in the same country. I really enjoyed the night.

We came for the khantoke dinner and cultural show which was very interesting although be aware that you will be sitting on the floor. Entertainment was interesting but I think someof it may have been lost in translation somewhere along the line.

If you go with modest expectations, you will not be disappointed. It is clearly intended for tourists to sample the local culture, but better to see it than miss it.
