There's an old proverb that says - "When in Rome, do as the Romans do". As much as we should follow the customs when visiting a foreign land, it's also a fantastic opportunity to enjoy some of the pleasurable activities available which we won't find in our back garden.
You cannot go to Thailand without going to at least one cabaret show and what better way to relax than to enjoy an evening out witnessing some of the most spectacular cabaret Bangkok has to offer.
I've put together some of the best Bangkok Cabaret Shows you wouldn't want to miss, some of which I've attended more than once. They include the Calypso Cabaret Show, the Mambo Cabaret Show, the Siam Niramit Show, the Nanta comic show as well as the lady-boy cabaret show at The Playhouse Magical Cabaret Theatre. As you can see, there is so much to choose, but they all offer fantastic entertainment.
Though I went to many of these cabaret shows on my own steam, I have since joined a tour company who make it just that much easier to buy your tickets online and thus save all the hassles of going it alone.
