You may not understand a word of the classical plays in the Thai language, but the actors’ ornate costumes and the beautiful setting will speak for themselves.
In spite of the fact that all performances in the National Theater are held in the Thai language, you should come to see at least one. The best day to visit the theater is Friday. This day of week’s theme is national traditions, so it presents a unique opportunity to see the amazing classical costumes in smart setting, and to get inspiration from the acting of the talented cast members.
