Siam Niramit Bangkok
Siam Niramit Bangkok is one of the largest stage productions in the world with over 100 performers with more than 500 costumes. The show features amazing special effects using the world’s most advance technology is an excellent introduction to Thailand’s history and culture.
On arrival at Siam Niramit, ladies dressed in traditional Thai costume with roses in hand are ready to welcome visitors. You will be guided to the ticketing counter to purchase your tickets or collect your pre-purchased tickets.
There are several type of tickets – normal, golden seat and platinum seat plus you can add on a Thai buffet dinner.
Before the show starts, visit the well built Thai Village or enjoy the Thai Cultural show just outside the theatre.
Thai Cultural Show
The Siam Niramit show consist of 3 acts. Starts at 8pm and ends at 9.30pm without intermission. The theatre is a large hall with a seating capacity of 2000 people.
Act 1 – Journey Back to History. The show demonstrates the Thai culture with historical scenes of different parts of Siam and explains why the Thai people love and respect the monarchy.
Act 2 – Journey Beyond Imagination. The show continues about heaven and hell.
Act 3 – Journey Through Joyous Festivals. The final part of the show is about the various festivals celebrated by the Thais.
The show is not only informative but very interesting too. Foreigners can enjoy and understand the whole show as there is very little dialogue. Besides actors, the case includes goats, chickens and elephants. All played their role really well. The set is simply amazing that one scene a man dives into the river.
I highly recommend visiting Siam Niramit especially if you are a fan of stage shows. Cameras are not permitted in the theatre, so it’s best to leave it in the hotel. Lockers are available outside the theatre to store your cameras which can be collected after the show.
