  • I saw the 30 minute show that comes free as part of the ticket to the palace. If I had more time, I would have booked tickets for the whole show.  more »
  • If you want an introduction to Thai classical theatre then this is the place to come. Hanuman looms large.  more »

  • The play we saw, part of the Grand Palace tickets, was a pleasant surprise. It is a 30 minute piece on one of the folklore stories of Thailand, and the acting, music and overall performance was amazing. The theatre itself is comfortable and overall recommended if you are in Bangkok and want to see a local show
  • Wonderful traditional performance that was short and sweet (25min). Our tickets came complimentary with the ones we bought into the grand palace (500B). They have many shuttle busses from the place to the theatre. They have English+Chinese subtitles above the stage to brief the story line during the performance - very thoughtful. After the show you can line up to take photos with the performers too :)
