Slow, boring show and dance. The food was ok, I like those chicken drumsticks. As for the show, I almost fell asleep, nothing so special.

This is a must! Need to do for the experience of getting a taste of Thailand. The food is ok, but the entertainment is what is the best. Make your reservations early so you can get right up front and wear something comfortable as you will be sitting on the floor! Loads of Fun especially when you are with a... More

The experience overall was great. It was 520 baht per person for adult or child. Drinks extra. Food was great. Included a variety of dishes (yam fries, KFC style chicken, chilli stle dish, rice, sweet rice, veggie noodles, chicken curry). Kids enjoyed it. The dancing during dinner was great. The second show is boring. Just random short dances. No hill... More

The Cultural Center is an interesting complex with hill-tribe craftmaking displays. The dance style is beautiful with alternating quick and slow movements. A show which is local musicians, music and dancers. It is as collectively beautiful and graceful as a major ballet.

My past experience with this type of thing has always been a little hokey, so I wasn't super excited, but we... More

It's good to visit this place to see some more of Thailand culture. Various Thai dishes to try. Some folk dances, long-nails women dance - all this is so Thai!!! My 7 year old daughter loved this as she likes dancing performances very much. We reserved the dinner table about week and a half before. The price included food (soup,... More

Worth going to. Entertainment pretty good. Traditional dances are beautiful to look at. Second half of show after dinner, ethnically interesting but a little boring. The food is good, much better than usually found in these places. Service nice and prompt.
