Located 91 miles (147 kilometers) southeast of Bangkok, the city of Pattaya has emerged as one of Thailand’s most popular beach resorts, and for good reason. Here are some of the area’s top beaches to check out while you’re there.
Alangkarn Show Pattaya
The Thai Alangkarn Theater troupe entertains up to 2,000 guests on the huge modern stage, complete with parading elephants, fireworks, a laser show, and historical reenactments during the Alangkarn Pattaya Show extravaganza. The facility also includes a 1,000-seat restaurant for dinner shows and a cultural market.
Th Sukhumvit, Pattaya, 20250
Thai myth and legend come to life on stage each night during the Thai Alangkarn Theater Show, one of Pattaya’s most popular stage performances. Show goers can choose between a basic entrance ticket, which includes an assigned seat for the show, or upgrade with extras like roundtrip transportation from Pattaya hotels or dinner at a Thai and international buffet on the theater grounds.
Things to Know Before You Go
- The Alangkarn Pattaya Show is one of Pattaya’s best cultural performances.
- The performance lasts approximately 70 minutes.
- Infants and children small enough to sit on a lap enjoy free admission.
How to Get There
The theater is on Sukhumvit Road. The easiest way to get there is to hire a taxi or book a ticket that includes pickup and drop-off at your Pattaya hotel.
When to Get There
Performances are hosted nightly (closed Wednesdays), and it’s a good idea to arrive at least 15 minutes early to find your seat and get comfortable before the show begins. The buffet dinner is served prior to the performance.
Cultural Performances in Pattaya While the Alangkarn Pattaya Show ranks among the destination’s most popular performances, it’s not the only show in town.
