Many visitors to Thailand have been amazed to find that some of the beautiful women they encounter, and subsequently admire for their distinctly Thai features, are actually men. In Thailand, these men are referred to as ladyboys, or katoeys in Thai language, and are arguably some of the world’s most convincing transvestites, thanks to their slim figures and ladylike manners. Regardless of whether your travels to Thailand have you seeking out world-class shopping areas, National museums & weekend markets, renowned temples or Muay Thai boxing matches you will certainly not want to miss the unique experience of going to a Thai Ladyboy Cabaret show.
Customer feedback – “It was, without a doubt, a highly entertaining couple of hours that was sadly over way too quickly. I would highly recommend seeing a ladyboy show to anyone visiting Bangkok.”
Thai ladyboys have established themselves within the entertainment industry and draw tourists from around the world who wish to witness their enthusiastic, fun-loving and beautiful performances. Daily Thai Ladyboy performances, which resemble the cabaret shows of years gone by, are held in the large theaters of Thailand’s renowned entertainment cities of Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket and Chiang Mai.

The range of performances often includes a touch of comedy, which always draws the crowd further into succumbing to the varied charms and beauty of the stars on stage.
