When the sun sets on the beautiful sea, Phuket’s nightlife and entertainment come alive. The island is a great place to explore after dark, with a variety of shows and performances that are sure to impress. Here are some of the must-see night shows on the island:
Phuket Fantasea is a popular show that highlights the beauty and traditions of Thailand. With over 400 cast and crew members, 44 elephants, and many other animals, the show is a breathtaking Las Vegas-style production that features acrobatics, illusions, fireworks, aerial performances, and more. Families can also enjoy a carnival village with games, parades, and a large themed restaurant that offers one of the best buffets in town.
Siam Niramit is another great option for an evening show, with a fabulous 70-minute performance that features great choreography, songs, and a fantastic international and Thai restaurant. The non-stop show takes you through the history of Thailand, showcasing traditional lifestyles and beliefs, including depictions of heaven and hell.
Simon Cabaret is one of the most famous “ladyboy” cabaret shows in the city, featuring stunning costumes, expensive sets, and great sound systems. The music show is a wonderful surprise that will showcase just how beautiful Thai boys can be.
If these shows are not your thing, then Muay Thai Boxing might be just what you’re looking for. Phuket is home to stadiums and shows where you can experience the sport at its best. The Boxing Stadium in Saphanhin District is the main venue in Phuket, with fights taking place every Friday at 8 pm. Bangla Boxing Stadium is another interesting option, although its unusual decoration and beer bars can give the impression of it being just another tourist trap.
