Classical Thai dinner and dance performance
Classical Thai dinner
and dance performance
An evening that embodies the best that Thailand has to offer; an evening that includes the charm
and grace of Thai dance performances, accompanied by traditional Thai classical music,
while a selection of Thai dishes are served. An exquisite evening out!
WHY THIS TOUR?
From a young age, Thai children of all ages are introduced to learn about one of the pillars of Thai culture: its classical dances. For centuries, graceful moves of immaculately dressed dancers entertained royalty and distinguished members of the rulers, unbeknownst for the commoners, during the Kingdom of Siam era. Elaborate costumes, jewellery dangling from head to feet, and facial expressions that depict the serene yet blissful moments when performing are all ingredients in taking on a daunting task of keeping this tradition alive and authentic.
Unlike the performances at royal courts, one of Bangkok’s main downtown venues has opened its doors to enjoy dances such as the fingernail and candle dance. Accompanied by live music and a Thai set dinner, Thai dinner and dance performances are in essence as Thai as its other attractions in this world-class tourism destination.
19:00 - 21:00
Customers are requested to make it to Silom Village along one of Bangkok’s most famous roads on own arrangements. For customers who book the private option, a transfer from your hotel to Silom Village is included. Upon arrival, you will be warmly welcomed and guided by the staff to a traditional wooden house for an evening of traditional performing art and a genuine prepared Thai style dinner. Silom Village is one of the few remaining restaurants in Bangkok that is housed in a traditional wooden Thai house along Silom Road, one of the capital’s main transportation arteries. Besides its well-known Thai classical performance, guests will find a few shopping opportunities and a bar area with regular live Thai music.
This excursion offers a feast of Thai culture and the country’s legendary cuisine in one sitting! The delicious meal is accompanied by Thai classical music and exquisite dances. Once performed in the inner-court only for royalty, every hand gesture has a significant meaning. In the background, expert musicians demonstrate their considerable skills with ancient instruments exclusively designed for Thai classical music. You will be amazed by the grace and beauty of the dancers as they elegantly perform stories from classical tales and sagas.
The exquisitely crafted traditional costumes adorned with jewels provide the perfect photo opportunity. The dancers with their beautiful glittering costumes and exquisite graceful movements will stay in your memory forever.
After exploring the various shops around the theatre, we will transfer you back to your hotel (private tours only).
