I guess i went during off peak and so we got the whole place to ourselves. The show was funny and we had a little scare during the Michael Jackson performance. All in all, it was worth it. I booked my tickets through Klook.com. It's cheaper and you get a discount if you download the app. Cheers. Catherine

I went to the early evening performance on Saturday and really enjoyed the whole production. Great sets, fantastic costumes, skillful dancing and, as well as the lip syncing, was some live singing. A wide variety of styles ranging from ballet to Michael Jackson's Thriller. There were scenes from current West End Musicals reproduced as well as a number of slick... More

great cabaret experience with a lot of effort put into the choreography and costumes. a little far out of the centre but worth the trip. many talented dancers and performers, probably about 50, all happy to do a group photo with you at the end.

Brought my mom here for something cultural yet not too crazy and it was perfect. The show was great, the performers were personable, interacting with the audience often. I loved the Disney references. The show has a little bit for everyone. Totally safe to bring kids, parents, etc. Fun for all ages. No idea why this place isn't more popular.... More

Not tacky, not sleazy but an amazing mixture of modern music , humour, magic and culture. The dance routines are superb, the costumes amazing and the whole show was simply brilliant. The J Lo and...

My husband and I really wanted to see a lady-boy show while in Bangkok but weren't keen on getting hit up aggressively for tips afterwards as many other cabaret shows (Calypso) are known for. The Playhouse Magical Cabaret was fantastic! Even though there were only 4 of us in the audience, the performers were professional, entertaining and interactive. We had... More

We went to the show this evening. The show was great! Costumes, decorations, music, dancers. I would advise to buy ticket to the show from travel agencies in town. We bought from our hotel for 1000 bath each the same evening, and in the theather they charge 1200 bath. If booking in advance from internet agencies i have prices in... More

Staying in Chatuchak

Neighbourhood Profile
Every weekend, thousands of tourists make their way up to this Northern Bangkok suburb to get lost in an enormous maze of shops at the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Home to almost 10,000 vendors, you’ll find everything from vintage sneakers to comic books and Thai handicrafts being sold here. You name it, Chatuchack probably sells it. The market is a great place to pick up souvenirs, but be sure to bargain for a good price. After a day of shopping and strolling around, the lush green lanes of Chatuchak Park are a welcome relief.
