One thing I always do whenever I arrived in a place is to buy the local english newspapers with those separate classified ads, lifestyle & tourism and advertisement pages .... looking for local flavors, itineraries, hotel and tour deals.

We booked this package from a local travel agent I found on the newspaper, I forgot how much it cost but it's cheap (most people doesn't like the word which may connote other meaning), value-for-money!

The cultural show is a traditional Thai banquet amidst watching classical dance performance. It was a low season I guess, so the whole place is not even half-full. The food is a set menu that includes some local vegetables and seafood. The performance was OK, colourful, pretty faces and you can take photos along with the performers after the performance.

It's fun for the whole family!

There are two popular places that holds these cultural dance shows, we took the first one:

1) The Chao Phraya Cultural Centre near Sathorn Bridge, offers a combination of seafood, classical dance and craft demonstrations. (02 439 3477)

2) Sala Rim Nam (02 437 2918) (regular ferry from Tha Oriental pier) serves an excellent Thai set dinner (indoors) accompanied by a Thai classical dance show.

3) Supatra Riverhouse (02 -411 0305) located in an authentic Thai style house on the banks of the river, makes a great choice for a pre-theatre dinner if you're thinking of visiting the Patravadi Theatre close by which is famous for the performing arts. The restaurant at Supatra Riverhouse also stages classical dance shows during the high season (November - April)
