We continue our guide about best and biggest ladyboy shows around Thailand. They might be a bit different in their dimensions or program, but sure thing these performances will leave you impressed.
Moulin Rouge Cabaret (previously Christy’s)
Even if the resort of Chaweng on Koh Samui island concedes to Bangkok and Pattaya in its size, it’s still known as being home for few memorable ladyboy cabaret shows. Although their stages are not the same large or grandiose as those shows that we viewed in the first article, anyway Chaweng has enough fun and cheerful ladyboy shows to offer.
Here the best to chosen is Moulin Rouge (previously known Christy’s) which is arranged in a quite small, but cozy and relaxing theatre. In the show involved 20 ladyboys and the entertainment includes their direct contacts with the audience which you’d never get with any bigger show. They give 3 performances per night that are different in some way: the earliest is more appropriate for the family audience, and the latest at 11pm show is for those wishing to see something more obscene and naughty. It usually has free admission, if only you will need to buy at least one drink with prices starting at 220 baht.
Calypso Ladyboy Cabaret
Certainly Bangkok has never lacked of ladyboy shows, however it’s worth noting Calypso Cabaret among them. The best thing is about Calypso’s location, it’s situated at the open-air riverside mall Asiatique. That’s why you can plan a rich program for all afternoon including shopping around its boutiques, dining in fancy restaurants and in the end visiting a ladyboy show.
Giving its first performance 28 years, Calypso today is a show set in purpose-built theatre with a multiple change of fantastic costumes and dancers looking like divas. The repertoire of show especially pleases western audience with its well-known and favorite classic songs and iconic covers from Marilyn Monroe to Madonna and Michael Jackson.
We were supposed to review only 5 best ladyboy shows in Thailand, however we can’t ignore a couple more.

More precisely, Colosseum is located Jomtien, on Thepprasit Road which is more quiet and has easier traffic than Pattaya. The show impresses with its huge stage and incredibly beautiful ladyboy dancers dressed in gorgeous costumes.
