The National Theatre in Bangkok


The National Theatre
Bangkok

Thailand's National Theatre predominantly shows Thai Classical drama and features performances of Khon - drama where players wear traditional Thai masks. These are truly wonderful productions; extremely ornate costumes, excellent lighting – everything you could want. You can see exhibitions of Thai classical dancing and music on the last Friday and Saturday of each month. The theatre does, however, venture into more international aspects of the medium and it’s worth getting hold of their schedule. Sitting through a long Thai language production can be demanding and it is possible to see similar productions at some of Bangkok’s entertainment venues. As a result, unless you really are a theatre aficionado, seeing a play at the National Theatre might not be at the top of your priority list.

Details: Admission Fee is 40 Baht.

How to get there: The National Theatre is located on Na Phra That Road next to the National Museum. (near Thammasat University and National Theatre). One of the quickest ways to get there is Express Boat, getting off at Banglampoo Pier. Walk down the river to Pinklao Bridge, go under the bridge and walk towards Sanam Luang. Turn right and the National Theatre is on the right.

The following buses will get you there:

Bus Number: 3, 9, 59, 64, 65, 70, 201
Air-conditioned Bus Number: 39, 59, 82
