Royal theatre built in the thirties. Every Tuesday and Friday, show of thai theater with magnificent costumes and scenery. Places range from 800 to 1200 bath. Really a beautiful show not to miss.

I was travelling through SE Asia on my own, and decided to book tickets to this in advance as something to do in the evenings. It was quite expensive, but then theatres have high overheads to cover, so in reality there isn't much profit to...More

Hi, if you are looking for the Khon (Thai Masked dance), it is held every Thursday/Friday at 7.30pm so there's a show on 18 Feb. thaiticketmajor sells the tickets online. Not sure about other performances (if any).
