Siam Niramit Phuket
If you would like to enjoy some Thai arts and culture, plan to attend the Phuket show in Siam Niramit. This is a tastefully put together cultural extravaganza that brings vitality to the island. It has the perfect location off the By-Pass Road just to the outskirts of Phuket Town with a prime lakeside setting. The Phuket show features dance routines, traditional martial arts and singing; a fantastic 70 minute performance, which is similar to her sister theatre in Siam Niramit Bangkok.
Siam Niramit Phuket Highlights
The 70 minute show has three acts with no intermission and all equally entertaining. For tourist in the audience, it may be wise to pay attention to Act II where Thais conceives the concept of heaven and hell. In his conception, he describes Heaven as beautiful with Saints and Angels literally flying about, while hell is quite different and very scary with alcoholics forced to drink from a cauldron of boiling water and adulterers forced to climb thorny trees. Besides the incredible stage setup and spectacular and realistic special effects and costumes, one reviewer is quoted as saying, “It was great to watch and enjoy, and it was also very educational.” It is safe to say that Siam Niramit has what it takes to become a must see show in Phuket.

Everyone, including the kids will love the carnival games and feeding the friendly elephants.
