  The River of Kings musical
by Audrey118

Favorite thing: The River of Kings musical, this year 2003 is running the 4th edition. It is a puppet show with computer generated graphics nonto a 40 meter wide sheet of water. It is a splendid musical for the children to enjoy,
We joined the musical part of the hotel arrangement. For THB 2300 it included a Thai set dinner on board of a renovated rice barge, and we sailed along the river while dining. After that the boat stopped at a pier where we walked towards the Grand Palace for ours seats. From there we noticed another company, RiverSun which was a modern huge boat airconditioned and dining facility indoor, and ontop of the boat is the staggered seats for them to watch the musical.It was quite interesting for them to watch from a floating boat seats but we had seats pretty closed up.

Fondest memory: The annual event is at Ratchaworadit Pier, close to the Grand Palace, and is held around early February,

This year's story is based on the Fantasy of Forest, very much inspired by the Lion King show. Ther was more than 150 perfor5mers and at least 300-odd crew. The show lasted a bit more than an hour.

The music although in Thai is translated into English via a headset provided upon request.
