Amusement, Performance, Extravaganza and all the fun in the sun you can imagine
The City Lights Up
For some of the very best Pattaya Entertainment, a visit to one
or more of the fabulous ladyboy cabaret shows is an absolute must. I
have been to them all and then some. I just love these shows and you
don't have to be gay to appreciate the vibrant beauty and exceptional
talent these people put into their shows.
Some of the best in
Thailand have both local as well as top international talent. My honest
opinion is that
Tiffany's is by far the best of all the lady boy shows. If you've only got time to see one show here, then Tiffany's it has to be.
Tiffany's Ladyboy Show Palace
Every time I go to this seaside resort, I take friends to see this
show and I have never been disappointed once. A word of warning though,
you may not take photos once the show starts. A good thing as you don't
want to be disturbed whilst the show is in progress. Some of the other
shows in and around Thailand do allow you to take pictures though. You
can of course, take photos outside with your favourite ladyboy. (can you
guess mine?) Did I mention the cost per photo! Last time it was 40
Baht. Take some small change with you and have fun.
Speaking of cost, shows start at around 600 Baht per adult. I would recommend you dig a little deeper and pay the extra for a VIP seat. Prices are 850 Baht for adults and 600 Baht for children. Ask for one of the front, middle row seats, but not the first row as this row is almost always a target from one or two performers. Not the ones you want.
Another tip is to first shop around for the best prices as some hotels and resorts seem to have their own more expensive itinerary. Prices quoted are inclusive of transportation to and from your hotel.
