** Actual date of visit - October 2010 ** We booked a table through our tour operator, Kuoni, from our hotel. The food was ordered in advance, presumably to allow the dance element of the night to be timed properly. Later that night, a taxi picked us up and stopped at neighbouring hotels to pick up a few other couples on the way. We were shown to our outdoor tables in the middle of a wooden dining area, with traditional Thai percussionists playing beside the stage. After ordering a couple of drinks and settling into our first course, the first of the dancers began their performance on the stage in front of us. There was an impressive range of styles, which included Muay Thai kick boxing and historic ritual dances. After our last course all guests were asked if they wanted to join the dancers - which we did - and we were shown the steps to a dance over bamboo sticks. I wasn't expecting that part! The food and drink was very nice, although I paid for some drinks at the end but didn't get any kind of change (nice big tip for someone then!).
