Part of the grand palace package.
Aug 2019 • Family
This is a part of the grand palace tour. After you finish the grand palace tour you are guided on a free bus ride to this theatre. Very majestic and you can watch Thai traditional art forms. If you have the time it is definitely worth it. The shows are of very good standard.

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.

Short, well staged classical Thai theatre pieces

If you want an introduction to Thai classical theatre then this is the place to come. Hanuman looms large.

Great Show
Oct 2019
Our tickets were free when we paid to go into the Grand Palace so we went the following day. We arrived early and enjoyed a drink in the foyer. The theatre was large so plenty of seats and the show was typical Thai dancing. I really enjoyed it and it was something different. I recommend you go if you have the time

Excellent Show

This was something we had not planned for...
The Grand Palace ticket included the Khon dance at Sala Chalermkrung Royal theatre and it so happened that when we were coming out of the Grand Palace the shuttle that takes visitors to the theatre was right at the exit. It was a momentary decision to go and see the dance and it was worth it.

The performance is excellent, the settings, the way the story is explained in a board above the stage ( in English) are all good. Overall a very good experience.
Will stringly recommend to see this show.

Great performance!

We used the voucher included with the Grand Palace. The free shuttle is located at the exit of the Grand Palace, and it's a great ride to the theatre. The show was great and there were English subtitles to tell you the story. A great way to get out of the heat for 30 min.

nice performance
Oct 2019
A ticket for this was included in the Grand Palace ticket and we went there on the same day. It was really nice, they had English and Chinese subtitles on top of the stage.
The story was a bit related to the statues in the Grand Palace, the one where Rama was aided by the monkeys to save his kidnapped wife.
It is better to sit on the front row of the second section since some of the main actors will come down from the stage and approach the very first row in the first and second section.
The seats are quite comfortable, you could doze off in it too.
But the play/story kept me interested and it was funny at times. We even had a picture with 2 of the characters after the play.

Spellbinding performance
Sep 2019 • Couples
Though unplanned, we were lucky to watch a traditional Thai dance performance called Khon. It tells the Indian epic Ramayana from monkey god Hanuman's point of view. Masked actors with support of musicians perform a ballet that includes some acrobatic moves. The performance is spellbinding even for folks who are not aware of the epic. There are subtitles in English for us to understand each scene. Theatre is very near Wat Saket or the golden mount.
