This was our third occasion going to Calypso. This venue is much better than the old one, but the show is certainly not as good as the old location. It however is still worth the effort to see.

I had a great idea to support LGBT community and the Thailand ladyboy community and thought that I might catch a show with my wife. Unfortunately, I selected this venue and show... The show is bizarre, lip sync is so far out (worse then Britney Spears), complimentary drink is a joke (pretty sure the "draught" beer was watered down), and... More

For myself I've enjoid very much the custumes, the voices and the music which made the show extravagand .One big disadvantage - the price at the cash : 1200 bahts is not justified even with drink , specially if the shaw takes only 1 hour including a break which means less then an hour net time.

I was impressed with the interior deco of the venue. This Lady boys cabaret show was slightly different from the Tiffany show I went to at Pattaya years ago. The mix was more towards western songs & dances. I was surprised to see men performers first dresses like men & later strip to bra tops and G-strings. It was entertaining... More

We thought this would be a great evening out. We are LGBT supporters and think that the lady boy culture in Thailand is really cool. There was nothing cool about this show. The dancing was not good. The 'singing' was off queue. The song choices (aside from 'free your mind') were obscure and just plain weird. There was virtually no... More

My partner and I have just escaped from this show and thought that we would put up a review ASAP to stop people wasting their hard earned baht. It's torture to sit through, the lip syncing is sooooo bad and half of them are not doing anything with their faces at all. The show is just bizarre and goes from... More

I went to a ladyboy show in Chiang Mai which was a quarter of the price and ten times more fun. This was perhaps aimed at a more international/Eastern audience as half of the performances left me completely lost, bored or even uncomfortable. There were too many OTT costumes and theatrics instead of focussing on the performers themselves (let's be... More

I wouldn't say this is the best, I think the one in Pattaya Tiffany is much better with a bigger stage. But nevertheless its an entertaining performance worth going. Most performers lip sync to the songs being played back. Love the clown.

Seeing the lady-boys to perform was fun. It is hard to believe they look exactly like women. The dancing was quite nicely organized and rehearsed. One could tell they enjoyed themselves giving the performance. This is part of the Thai culture that this country is well-known for.

I have been to Thailand many times and have seen ladyboy shows in all the big resorts,and this turned out to be the worst we have seen , it was definintely overpriced at 1200 bahts per person even though it included a free drink , the seats though in a good position were terribly uncomfortable and the format of the...
